Wet n Wild has a endcap display out at Walgreens called the Fan Favorites display. It’s mostly filled with permanent products, but at the bottom of the display, there’s something exciting: a re-release of 7 of the 8 polishes from the limited-edition 2011 Holiday Ice Baby Color Icon polishes. However, upon closer inspection, I have disappointing news: several of the polishes are different from the original release, and instead are rebottled Fergie polishes.
Let’s go through the polishes one at a time.
Rockin’ Rubies has not been changed, as far as I can tell. It was apparently re-released as Fergie No Place Like Home.
24 Carats has been changed completely. The old polish was clear with gold bar glitter; the new polish is gold with gold glitter. I didn’t see another polish identical to the new version.
Cost is No Issue was previously a small teal glitter with a larger blue glitter (I don’t have the original, but there are lots of images if you search). It is now a pale blue jelly with small and large iridescent glitter. I think that there was a WnW Wild Shine nail polish that was identical to this, but I can’t find a swatch online, and I couldn’t find it in store. Anyone know if I’m making it up, or know what I’m talking about?
Believe Me It’s Real appears to be the same as the original (again, I don’t have it, but you can google for swatches). It is identical to Fergie Dutchess, as pictured.
Back Alley Deals was originally composed of a tiny purple glitter with a larger pink glitter. It is now a pink and purple glitter mix. I prefer the original! I think I’ve seen the new version somewhere – perhaps in the Spoiled line of polishes? Please comment if you recognize it!
It’s All in The Cut has transformed completely. It was previously composed of tiny lilac glitters with larger pink round glitters. Now, it’s identical to Fergie Take The Stage – small hot pink glitters with larger silver glitters.
Diamonds in the Rough is identical to the previous release, and also identical to Fergie Rock n Roll.
And, Give Me a Price Cut (chartreuse bar glitter) has not been rereleased at all.
I find this kind of games-playing with names really frustrating! Every polish should have exactly one name; no more and no less.
