Spotted: A VERY special Wet n Wild display

I couldn't resist giving this post a regular "Spotted" title, but for me and some of the other Wet n Wild Beauty Ambassadors, this is much, much more than a regular ol' display!

I've been keeping a secret for months but it's now official and it's coming to a Walgreens near you (it may already be at your local Walgreens!). Are you ready? Check it out:

Wet n Wild Beauty Ambassador Favorites Display

Me!

Here's a closer pic of my mani, which I created using three of my favorite Wild Shine polishes (Tickled Pink, French White Creme and Black Creme) and Scotch tape:




As luck would have it, reader Brie of Simply Thrifty Nails actually spotted this display "in the wild" at her local Walgreens last week (she was actually the first person to tell me that this display was already out in the marketplace, so thanks again for that very exciting news, Brie!). Here are some pics:

I can't even begin to express my gratitude to Wet n Wild for creating this display and allowing us all the opportunity to be a part of it. As many of you know, I've been a hardcore, longtime fan of Wet n Wild fan since the late 1980s (I wore their red lipstick and red polish to my high school prom in 1989!). If someone were to tell me that, 23 years later, I'd be PART of a Wet n Wild display, I'd think they were cuckoo!

The best part for me is to be able to share this with my fellow Beauty Ambassadors whom I knew and loved since before we were Ambassadors for Wet n Wild . Each of these amazing women work so hard on their blogs and it's wonderful to see hard work pay off with a bit of recognition. I'm sending big ol' virtual hugs to all of you ladies right now!

Thanks so much for reading this post and I hope that when you spot this at your local Walgreens, you'll smile for a minute as you imagine me doing cartwheels through my house at the very thought of being on a Wet n Wild display!

A "spotted" post wouldn't be complete without this question so I've just gotta ask: 

Have you spotted the new Wet n Wild Beauty Ambassador Favorites display at your local Walgreens yet? Thoughts?

    1. Yep, the program has been dormant for a few months, but we actually were asked to participate in this display back in the spring. I'm happy to say the program will be picking back up very soon, so we'll be able to cover the new releases like before. :)

  43. I have totally gotten into nails because of you! I started following you for mu but have since had my nails grow (hooray good fats!) and now always have them painted. I have over 40 polishes now. However, that 99 cent Wild Shine is my favorite. It doesn't smell bad (my first concern) and wears longer than anything else I've tried. That is so cool you are representing it! Congrats to you and the other bloggers, some of whom I also follow on YouTube. This is very exciting!

  48. Congrats to you! I haven't seen the display in my area yet, but I will be watching for it. I love the color blocked nail design you chose. I just started using Wet n Wild cosmetics the past 3 weeks and I purchased them based on your reviews here on this very blog. Before trying them out, I had only used the nail polishes for stamping and as far as the makeup I thought it was a "cheap" dollar store brand and had a very poor impression of them overall, and was comparing them in my mind to Flame Glo and other bargain cosmetics. I am a bit of a make up snob and was using Estee Lauder and Urban Decay products. So...based on your wonderful blogs about it, I thought what the heck it's only a couple of dollars for an eye trio and I'll try it. Well, I was so impressed that I went out and bought all the other palettes and they look as good on me and seem to last as long as my expensive department store makeup does. Anyway, thanks to you I am now a Wet N Wild cosmetics lover! I think that's really wonderful that they chose you for the display! Congrats again. I soo love your blog!

  57. How in the heck did you get FWC to apply so smooth? I love this white because it's the least streaky I own but it won't self level. I actually just put this on not even 20 minutes ago.

    Congrats though!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. How strange! I have literally never had a problem with that polish not self-leveling! I laid down three coats of FWC before I taped off and applied the other two colors (I did three coats only because I knew this pic was going to be high res and I wanted it to be absolutely perfect). I didn't have an issue at all with leveling...I would have scrapped this design and gone with another one if I had. sorry you're having issues! :( Maybe try adding a few drops of polish thinner?
