Wet n Wild Pop! Back To School - My Picks

 purchased by me 

Jellies!  Aaahh!  The moment I saw photos of Wet n Wild's new Pop! Back To School collection, I knew I needed at least a couple of the Candy Gloss Nail Tints.  I skipped Edie In Pink...because pink, but I got the other three and scampered to try them out.

One Grape Or Another is fuchsia jelly.

Glorious, isn't it?  I was a little worried after someone on Instagram told me these had a bad formula, but I didn't have any real issues.  It's sheer, but that's exactly what I want from a jelly.  It builds nicely too.  This is three coats.

I'll admit though, it was pretty patchy at two coats...

two coats...not so good

Floral Support is a tomato red jelly.

Slightly less orange in person and just...so summery!  It reminds me of Sally Hansen Leo In Rio, but I didn't compare them.  Floral Support is redder and doesn't have that hint of shimmer.  This is three coats, and it's the most opaque of the shades I tried.

A Case Of Blue is an ocean blue jelly.

pardon my lifting gel

Someday I'll write the pros and cons of wearing a lamp-cured gel basecoat.  Lifting is one of the cons.  While swatching these, my gel started to quit on me.  A few little pieces came off entirely.  Others just lifted.  Because of the sheerness of A Case Of Blue, you can see every flaw.  This is the sheerest of the bunch.  Three coats still shows plenty of VNL and anything else you've got going on.  Figures, doesn't it?

Bottom line: All three start off kinda patchy, but build well.  They're sheer and glossy like jellies should be.

They layer well too.  You'll see them in jelly sandwiches (sneaky peek) on here soon...and something else.  Wink wink.  Maybe you can guess...
