31 Days of Manis: Day 14: Flowers feat. Wet N Wild It's All In The Cut

I can't believe two weeks of this challenge have already gone by! I guess time flies when you're having fun though. Anyway, on to the show:  my flower print mani!

Originally I wanted to recreate this Minx look but last night when I was in Walgreens I finally found Wet N Wild's Ice Baby Collection. So I threw that idea by the wayside in favor of this sparkly gem.

I did two coats of Wet N Wild It's All About the Cut. As you can see there's lavender and pink glitter in this baby, but my picture isn't showing you all of it's sparkling glory. In certain angles you can make out the rainbow glitter as well. One thing I must mention is that this glitter dries a bit gritty, so you definitely need a good top coat to smooth it out. My favorite glitter smoothing combo is using one coat of Gelous base coat followed by one to two coats of Seche Vite. I used American Apparel's Hassid to stamp the flower image from plate M26 from a Mash 25 piece set that I bought on Amazon last summer.

I'll have to do some swatches for you guys of the rest of the collection. Wet N Wild's Ice Baby Collection is from their Color Icon line and is exclusive to Walgreens. They retail for $2.99, but make sure to look in the beauty department for their Holiday Coupon Book. There's a $1 off coupon in there for Wet N Wild products $2.99 and up.

I'm off to check out what L , Kisten and  Katherine did for their flower print manis while I think up what to do for tomorrow's delicate print mani. Have a happy Monday!


  1. Where do you get your nail plates? I always get my polishes at Walmart and CVS but I don't know where to find good quality stencils. Also I love your designs :)

  2. Thank you! I've bought various nail stamping plates on Amazon. Bundle Monster, Cheeky and Red Angel have some really great and cheap sets. Hope that helps!
