Wet n Wild School of Pyrotechnics over stamped mani

You may have figured out already that I have a love of all things glitter. That's why when I heard about the Wet n Wild limited edition polishes School of Pyrotechnics and Stars and Stripes, I knew I had to have them. I searched for a long time before finally running into them, and I am really glad I did. Wet n Wild School of Pyrotechnics is a rainbow glitter that's unique in the kinds of colors it features. Learn more details about School of Pyrotechnics, and about how my mani look emerged, after the jump!

So Wet n Wild School of Pyrotechnics was part of one of the many limited edition collections that Wet n Wild puts out over the course of a year. This time, the Sparks and Stripes collection was for the 4th of July holiday and also featured repackaged Spoiled glitters-Jewelry Heist, Shuffle the Deck and Pet My Peacock. School of Pyrotechnics was a new polish, though it is definitely reminiscent of another popular Wet n Wild polish, Party of 5 Glitters. 

The glitters in School of Pyrotechnics differ from those in Party of 5 Glitters because they are mostly lighter colors.  SoP includes: red, lavender, gold, a light turquoise blue, and a light emerald green color. You can check out this link to Nouveau Cheap where she includes a bottle by bottle comparison between Po5G and SoP to see the differences for yourself.

The color combination in SoP made it really hard for me to settle on a manicure. I tried the glitter over all kinds of colors but found that no matter which color I chose, one of the glitters in the mix would be camouflaged. Finally, I asked a friend for suggestions and she mentioned black and white. Later on, when I saw a cute black and white zebra stamp in a picture, I had my solution. Unfortunately, I never found my own zebra stamp, but this diagonal stripe one was cute. I also liked the idea of a really bright color on the accent nail, and China Glaze Frostbite is a favorite that worked well in this look.  Anyone can probably guess that I'm not a talent in the stamping department, but, luckily, the glitter smoothes over the imperfections. So just in case you're curious, here are the polishes this manicure features.
