3 Coats Wet n Wild Wear Skinny Jeans

So, Tuesday night, I stopped at my local KMart because I hadn't been there in a while, and what did I find? A fresh Wet n Wild Silver Lake Display! I'm talking every bottle of every shade freeeesh out the box! Also, I apologize for not taking pictures of the display. When I find nail polish I'm looking for, I tend to get really grabby. It doesn't matter that there's not another shopper within a 30 foot radius. I legit turn into a secret agent smuggling bounty over enemy lines. The struggle is soooooo real.
The Silver Lake Collection is Wet n Wild's Spring 2015 LE collection. That's code for, buy them when you see them, because they go seriously fast. I found this one quickly, considering it took me forever to find last year's All Access Beauty Collection for Summer. There's 6 shades in this one, too... A Latte Love, Reject the Mainstream, Stream of Consciousness, Tree Hugger, Warm Filter, and Wear Skinny Jeans.
I was a little torn between which shade to choose last night. Wear Skinny Jeans won out over Tree Hugger and Warm Filter. There's just something about blue shades like this. It's not quite as bright as Sail La Vie from SinfulColors, but it's definitely in that same color family. Just maybe 5 or 6 shades lighter? It has such a rightnow feel to it, you know?
Application was great... I forgot how much I've grown to love the Wet n Wild brush! It really helps you get a straight line at the cuticle! Coverage was pretty decent... I definitely needed the 3rd to make this opaque. I had a little issue with one nail not wanting to level out, but that was more because of those wonderful ridges in my nails.
If you look closely at the bottle in the pics, you can see a faint shimmer. Sadly, it doesn't transfer over to the nails exactly as it does in the bottle. You can see it when you're looking at your nails closely, but it's sparse and very hard to discern. More than anything, I feel like its there to help aid in an even, non-chalky finish. Which it totally does!
As much as I love this color, I really can't wait to try some of the other ones in this collection! Also, tomorrow is Fishbowl Friday, so I'll definitely be switching it up. I'm just not sure if I'll be using Wear Skinny Jeans as a base for nail art, or if the prompt will call for something completely new!
Have you picked up any polishes from the Silver Lake Collection?
