Spotted, Hauled & Swatched - Wet 'n Wild Street Art Polishes

**all items purchased by me

Today I have Wet 'n Wild's limited edition Street Art collection of polishes to share.  At first I wasn't going to get these because of all WnW's polish formulas, these get the worst wear on me.  But then I saw swatches, right when they were on sale at Walgreens for $.69 a bottle during the first week of March.  So I told myself that while I wouldn't go out of my way hunting them down, if I did find them easily I would get them.  Yeah...I found them with no problem, although I think some of the colors were down to the last bottle in that display.  Since then I have seen the collection at Rite Aid, which is where I got the display shot from, but since purchasing from Walgreens I haven't checked/paid attention at CVS, Giant Eagle or KMart since my hunt is done.

As always, let's get started with the display picture.
~this display is probably showing the most color-accurate out of all my pictures~

Now for them all lined up at home:
Temptation, Get Lucky, Too Hot For You, Here Comes Trouble, Deception, Cursed

Bottle/label shots (same order as above):

And swatches, both on the wheel and on my nails:
Get Lucky, Here Comes Trouble, Temptation, Too Hot For You, Cursed, Deception 
Temptation didn't really need the 2nd coat on the wheel, but I did 2 of everything for consistency's sake, and sometimes the lightbox's lights make things look more sheer than in real life.  Cursed and Deception are both jelly finishes so they still look a bit translucent on the wheel, but that's actually what drew me to them in the swatches I saw.   Temptation has a touch of shimmer.  For Get Lucky, I do recommend to have plenty of polish on the brush to work with as it is a bit on the streaky-thick side, but maybe 3 thinner coats might work better.  When I do go to wear these, I'll be sure to use a ridge-filling base coat as well as Orly Bonder to hopefully get a smoother application and longer wear.
Get Lucky, Here Comes Trouble, Temptation, Too Hot For You
2 coats of each, with top coat (this picture is washed out, but the best I could do to show the difference between Temptation and Too Hot For You)
Deception and Cursed, no top coat
pinkie and middle fingers are 1 coat; ring and index fingers are 2

Of the core Wild Shines, as well as a few miscellaneous limited edition polishes in my possession, I did not find any color dupes.  When I compared the Street Art polishes to all of my Wet 'n Wild polishes, I did not find any dupes that way either.  It's nice that even with such a large array of polishes among all the various formulas they've released over time that they are still able to come up with original colors.  I do enjoy the colors of this line, but the Wild Shine formula in general isn't the best wearing on me.  I can only get about 1 day before major chips so these aren't something I reach for very often.  BUT I haven't tried any for an extended time since I purchased Orly Bonder last fall so I'll have to experiment to see if that helps these last better on me.

Did you pick up any of the Wet 'n Wild Street Art polish collection?  Do these remind you of any other shades?
