Wet n Wild Prancer & Blitzen

Wet n Wild Prancer and Blitzen are 2 great layering polishes for the season, and they're really tiny! The bottle size is .22 fl. oz., and they seem even smaller than that. I found these in twin packs, each with a bottle of clear top coat. They were at Walgreens in a floor display with the Wet n Wild holiday LE eye palettes and are priced at $1.99 per set.

Above: Prancer is a clear based polish with red micro glitter and larger hex glitter. The larger glitter pieces reflect an amber color which adds a little something extra to the look. It's fairly sheer on its own, so I used 1 coat, then applied a coat of China Glaze Frosty over that. Lastly, I used one more coat of Prancer over the top.

Below: Blitzen is also a clear based shade and filled with silver and gold micro glitter. It has a sparse amount of slightly larger glitter in a reddish/violet color mixed in too. I used 2 coats of this shade over the look shown in the first photo.

Surprisingly, all of the layers dried quickly! I love the amber glow of Prancer's glitter, and I'm always drawn to polishes that have both silver and gold glitter in them, so Blitzen also appeals to me. Part of me wishes they weren't so sheer on their own, but they are definitely pretty as layering polishes.

Have you picked up these tiny beauties yet? I haven't seen them layered over darker shades yet, but I'm sure they are very effective that way as well.


  1. I'm glad you swatched these two - they're the two I DIDN'T try! :)

    I passed on buying Prancer all together because the little bottles I saw didn't appear to have large hex glitter in them - now I might have to reconsider!

  2. Really pretty! Still waiting for these to show up by me!

  3. I really want Prancer!! :-( That is such a pretty mani!

  4. Blitzen must be amazing over black nail polish!

  5. I haven't picked these up yet, saw them and now wish I had!

  6. They are definitely cute. Added to my list.

  7. I haven't been lucky enough to find any of the Wet n Wild holiday collection, but when/if I do Prancer and Blitzen are on my to-get list.

  8. Lovely! I wish I could find these polishes here too.

  9. Hi Mary!
