I didn't get around to swatching any of them, much less doing comparisons, so finally decided to just wear them all at once! I put Case Study on my index finger, Glamour Purse on my ring, and Lady Like on the rest, then added dots in Carry On and Very Structured. You'll see that my dotting tool technique still needs some work, but this was fun to do and fun to look at.
I'm not sure that Essie would approve—but then again, she does bust out the glitter every now and then, so she's not all understated all the time.
In other news, I decided to do another impromptu giveaway, so I fired up random.org and chose a number corresponding to a comment on my Piú Mosso entry to win an extra bottle of that deep shimmery beauty (which I ordered to get the free shipping with $100 purchase). Congratulations to Aly of Mai Senza Smalto! If you haven't already checked out her blog, I encourage you to do so—she does great swatches (and takes the time to write in two languages so mono-linguals like me don't have to mess with Google Translate).
In other other news, I finally found Wet 'n' Wild On the Prowl today, when I stretched my lunch hour to fit in a couple CVS stores I don't get to very often. The good news is most of the colors were there. The bad news is the one that was missing is the one I was most wanting to try: Tangled in My Web (black glitter in a clear base). The ones I did see: Buy Me a Drink (wine shimmer), Ink Well (black creme), Correction Tape (multi glitter in a clear base), Behind Closed Doors (red glitter in black base), Cougar Attack (copper glitter in black base), Jungle Fever (green shimmer), and Ready to Pounce (deep purple shimmer).
The the other CVS I went to at lunch didn't have On the Prowl, but they did have several bottles of Confetti Tiara, which is great for frankening and usually out of stock (I've heard that it's being discontinued but so far I've yet to see any CVS that's switched over the display, there's just almost always an empty spot where Tiara belongs). I'm considering whether to take a different route home from work tonight so I can hit up a few more CVS stores outside of my normal hunting grounds or just wait to see if it shows up at my usual stores at some point. The CVS stores closest to my house have been very late to get the last two Wet 'n' Wild special collections, so I'm thinking this one might be the same way.
