Alphabet Challenge: W is for... Wet N' Wild Water Marble

Hello, my dear readers :) Welcome to day 23 of the Alphabet Challenge, and the letter W! Getting this post up on a Wednesday to boot. I totally did that on purpose...

Lots of wild stuff going on here!

Couple of layers going on with this! First I laid down a base of two coats of Wet N' Wild French White, which is (as you might guess) a plain white creme polish. Over that, I dabbed two coats of China Glaze Glitz N' Pieces. This is an awesome chunky silver and black glitter combination--they did a whole collection of black-and-<insert colour> glitters called Bitz N' Pieces. The whole collection can be seen swatched here over white over at Beauty Junkies Unite. I didn't get a pic at this stage, but it looked exactly like her swatch of it, at the bottom of the post :)

I wore that for a day, then decided I wanted to kick it up a notch. I did a water marble with Wet N' Wild Black Creme and a cheap clear polish (no name, but a regular slow-drying clear) to get this look. The base shows through the clear and the black swirls really look cool! I first topcoated with Cult Nails Wicked Fast...

OK, they were super sparkly, but it's hard to tell here except on the small finger. The black looks nice and bold, though.

...but then I remembered how cool chunky glitters look with a matte topcoat, so I added a layer of the cleverly-named OPI Matte Top Coat.

The most fabulous zebra ever.

And just for fun (and because the design came out really cool on the thumb), here's a with-and-without-matte-topcoat shot of my thumb:

My entire thumb, nail and all, is the height of just my nail in these photos. MADNESS.

I hope you enjoyed this wonderful design for the letter W! ;) Have a lovely rest of your week and I'll see you next time! xoxo
