wet n wild Pin’ Em Slater

wet n wild Pin Em SlaterOh, A.C. Slater. I always felt bad for him. As the stereotypical jock he was always the butt of the joke. But he was lovable, none the less.

When wet n wild released their limited edition Saved by the Bell collection last summer every child of the 90’s was dying to get their hands on the polishes. Unfortunately, the collection was not rolled very well. Not only were these polishes next to impossible to find, who releases a collection of neons in August?

Well, regardless, the collection included 6 neons; one for each of Saved By the Bell‘s main characters. Pin’ Em Slater is a super bright neon yellow jelly. I find this polish isn’t wearable on its own (there is a swatch of it alone under the jump) but looks gorgeous over white. I used 2 coats of Ulta Snow White and just one coat of Pin’ Em Slater in my swatches.

I love super bright neon polishes for summer. I’ve done neon polka dots using this polish and I’ve also paired the bright yellow with a black and white accent nail. Both were fun, summer manis. But, if your thing isn’t highlighter bright nails then I do apologize for burning your eyeballs! There are more retina scorching swatches below the jump.

For other polishes from this collection check out my posts on Nerd Alert: Screech and Fashionista Lisa.

Saved by the Resort Giveaway!

Giveaway - Resort headerI am so over winter and ready for spring and summer! I’m not a fan of the cold, I much prefer the basking in the sun by the pool. I figured some of you might be feeling the same way so to honor my mid-winter blues, I’m having a giveaway!
This is a bit of a mix and match giveaway – my favorite kind! In January, Julep released their Resort Collection: Escape & Unwind which paired nudes with neons. I used my Julep Jules to order the Bora Bora Trio as an add on to my Bombshell Box The Bora Bora trio includes: Taylor:  a deep sky blue creme, Renee:  a spring lilac creme, and Mandy: a fresh, bright deep coral pink creme.

These colors are sure to warm you up! To step it up a notch, I’m including two polishes from Wet n Wild’s Saved by The Bell Collection: Fashionista Lisa and Pin ’em Slater.

Stay Warm!

wet n wild Nerd Alert: Screech

Yes, it is true. Wet n Wild has released a collection of 6 limited edition polishes named after the characters on everyone’s favorite show from the early 90’s; Saved By the Bell. So far, it’s been a bit difficult to track down the collection but I do think it’s a CVS exclusive.

All of the polishes in the Saved By the Bell collection are neons. Nerd Alert: Screech is a bright lime green with greenish yellow shimmer. The color is really quite interesting and unique to my collection. It does remind me bit of Maybelline Go Go Green (which I hate!) but less yellow.

The formula is a bit on the thin side. I used 4 coats in my swatches.

Really, there is nothing all that special about this nail polish. The formula isn’t amazing and the color is hard to pull off (and dress around!). But, if you grew up in the 90’s and spent your Saturday mornings watching Saved By the Bell how can you resist a polish named after Screech, the lovable nerd!? And at less than a dollar a polish, you can buy the entire collection and be completely guilt free!

If you’ve seen these in your area please leave a comment and let me know where you saw them. Especially if it wasn’t at a CVS! These polishes have been so hard to find I’m hoping that maybe the distribution is just slow.

Make sure to check out the swatches below the jump. The shimmer in this polish is really pretty 🙂
