Wet n Wild Coloricon Nail Color in 24 Carats


I recently won this amazing nail polish from Danielle and I couldn't wait to try it out! 


I must admit it's quite disappointing on its own - to me, at least - but I wasn't expecting much from it as I always prefer to layer glitter nail polishes over a dark base. I applied three coats of 24 Carats over Wet 'n Wild Shine Nail Color in Black Crème.


I didn't need to apply three coats for the glitters to properly show up but I really wanted to make a statement as I was going out for my Christmas work party. As for most glitter polishes, 24 Carats dries super quickly and I didn't notice a gritty finish.


I was incredibly disappointed to see my mani chip super quickly - the day after I applied the nail polishes, I noticed chips in the morning, and by the end of the second day of wear, I had nail polish left on only half of my nails! And yes, I did used a topcoat (Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Top Coat).


It's a shame these limited-edition nail polishes won't be available in Canada as from what I've seen on other blogs, they all look gorgeous and they would definitely make a great party accessory! At least I had the chance to try this one - thanks again Danielle! (:

  2. Le Black Creme de Wet-n-Wild, à chaque fois que je l'utilise sur tous mes ongles, ça ne tient jamais. Ça part en galette. J'ai essayer avec/sans top coat, avec/sans base, juste une couche/deux couches. J'ai même "sabler" mes ongles pour une meilleur adhésion. Rien à faire. C'est peut-être ça le problème? Pas tes brillants?

    Bref, il est très joli, et j'aurais tellement aimer mettre la main sur cette collection!

    Like how you did black as your base color.

  13. Hi Gaby! Awww that's too bad that the nail polish didn't hold up well. The Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Top Coat is my favourite top coat the moment and it works so well for me - I'm surprised the Wet N Wild nail polish chipped even with the top coat....but it's a gorgeous colour and I guess it's ideal for a last minute manicure the day you plan on going out with it on :)

  15. @JosianneL1507 : Je sais, je suspecte la base noire et pas les glitters mais tout de même, je suis tellement déçue de la top coat de Sally Hansen! De la vraie merde, elle ne tient avec AUCUN vernis, pourtant tout le monde a l'air de l'adorer!

    @ WitchHazel: Wish they were available here, they are all gorgeous!

    @Sari @Hunter87 : I almost never wear glitters without a darker base because they rarely show up ):

    @ Donna ♥ Baby : As always ):

    @Karen Law: Hi Karen! I know, I'm soooo disappointed because everybody seems to be so in love with that top coat but it just won't work for me!

  16. That top coat doesn't work for me either, so you're not alone. It leaves my nails feeling really sticky, even long after they "should" be dry.

  17. It leaves an interesting finish. It looks lovely in the bottle, but kind of hairy on the nails :/
