A few weeks ago when I purchased my Wet N Wild Coverall products (I have a review of the foundation and pressed powder here), I also picked up one of their Color Icon nail polishes from their Toppings collection: Sprinkled With Love. I think you might be able to still find displays of this collection in your local Walgreens, CVS, etc.
I am by no means a nail polish blogger, but I have been reaching for my polishes more & more recently. This is partly due to the fact that when I wear nail polish, I feel less inclined to bite my nails, which is a bad habit I picked up again recently. So… you might see more nail polish posts as I am making an effort to actually do my nails again to help break me of that habit once more.

They were on display at my local Walgreens and were retailing for $2.99 USD each. There were six shades total but I only picked up one, as I wasn’t sure what to expect. The bottles do not have the polish names on them; names are only on the tag along with the ingredients listing. The packaging is not typical of other Color Icon bottles… nor is it similar to any other nail polish bottles I own. Storage may be difficult considering you can’t remove the long stem from the cap — it is the cap!
The second photo was taken with my iPhone, which surprisingly captures purples & blues much better than my actual camera, so in that photo the duochrome of this polish more true to what you would see in person. Sprinked With Love is a polish which has small silver micro-glitter as the “base” (although there is no real base color, since these are meant to be layered I believe), along with a duochrome that shifts from a pink/fuschia to purple to cornflower blue, with brief glimpses of gold and subdued green. There are also small round pieces of glitter in varying colors throughout it as well: blue, red, silver, gold, and green from what I can see.
In this photo, I am wearing one coat of CND’s “Stickey” Base Coat with one coat of Wet N Wild Nail Polish in “Sprinkled With Love”, no top coat. It’s not fully opaque but the glitter isn’t sparse either. You can still see my natural nail through it.

In these two photos, I am wearing one coat of CND’s “Stickey” Base Coat with two coats of Wet N Wild Nail Polish in “Sprinkled With Love”, no top coat. You can see that two coats gives very nearly full coverage. The first photo was taken with my Canon, and the second photo was taken with my iPhone. The second photo shows the duochrome much better and that is more accurate to what I see when I look at my nails.
I really liked this polish. It applied easily, I didn’t have to place the glitter myself, and dried fairly quickly. The polish looks pretty nice on its own but I’m excited to start pairing it with other polishes underneath it to see how the duochrome comes across.
