Wet 'n Wild Pop! Back to School Polish Collection - Swatches


I felt like getting a polish post up before it became irrelevant - which happened with the Spring polish collection I purchased.  So today, I've got the Wet 'n Wild Pop! Back to School polish collection.  I can't believe that this collection that's currently available at Rite Aid (not sure about Walgreens/CVS/KMart) is targeted for the "back to school" season and I got these at the beginning of July.  I got mine on sale (40% off again).  I included bonus swatches of the Lost in the Wild Flowers polish collection since I didn't get a dedicated post up.
Also included in the display are 2 styles of eyelashes and 6 shades of lip gloss - none of which I got.

These have a special finish of Candy Gloss Nail Tint, a.k.a. jelly polishes.  I love that they are labeled that way as well as the special imaging on the cap that indicates these are all 1 collection.
Floral Support, Edie in Pink, A Case of Blue, One Grape or Another

Swatch time, plus a bonus play session.  For most accurate colors, check out my real nails - the swatch wheel colors were really not cooperating for accurateness.  (Maybe I shouldn't do swatch pictures at night when there's no natural light to balance out the light box - might help with quality)

The next wheel has the Spring collection that I had missed posting (I figured it was too late now for a dedicated post).  All of the swatches, except for Wild Wild Violet being 3 coats, are 2 coats.
Lost in the Wild Flowers: Poppy Culture, Cherry Blossom on Top, Leaf Me Be, Wild Wild Violet
Pop! Back to School: Floral Support, Edie in Pink, A Case of Blue, One Grape or Another
Floral Support, Edie in Pink, A Case of Blue, One Grape or Another
These are all shown at 2 coats.

I thought that while I was swatching these polishes for the blog, I'd play around with the "Candy Gloss Nail Tint" description by pulling out my bottle of OPI Snow Globetrotter.  I've got 2 coats of each polish under a single coat of Snow Globetrotter and topped off with a single, thin coat of the appropriate Wet 'n Wild polish.
~same polish order as above~

I think the Candy Gloss Nail Tints are fun polishes to play around with, and this time it's not a surprise when the polishes are sheer on the 1st and 2nd coat.  I really appreciate that there wasn't a green in this collection since I feel like I have other "unmarketed" jelly polishes in green from WnW.   Of these 4 polishes, Floral Support and One Grape or Another are the most sheer and Edie in Pink is the most pigmented (one coat of this equaled 2 of Floral Support).  A Case of Blue is just behind Edie in Pink in pigmentation.  I am a little curious as to how a couple of these compare to the Zoya jelly polishes (I believe there's a trio of shades).  They all dried quickly and decently shiny, but would benefit from a glossy top coat.

Are you planning on picking up any of the Wet 'n Wild Pop! Back to School polish collection?  Do you like jelly finish polishes?
