12 Manicures of Christmas 010 // Layering with Wet n Wild Color Icon Los Feliz Navidad

Wet n Wild Color Icon Collections usually make me stop in my tracks. Aaaand then proceed to buy every polish on the display. This year, I showed tremendous restraint and only purchased two. But I've been eyeballing what's left every time I walk by the display. 

Los Feliz Navidad has a huge sparkle factor, and that's what initially drew me in. But then I noticed the gorgeous slightly purple blue color and gold sparkles. It looked familiar, but I bought it anyway because I was curious about the formula. I'm definitely glad I picked this one up, because it is a gorgeous glitterbomb of a shade, perfect for this time of the year!

Polishes Used: 

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Wet n Wild Color Icon Los Feliz Navidad
1 Coat Orly Gossip Girl
1 Coat Wet n Wild Color Icon Los Feliz Navidad
2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

It's an unwritten rule here at Seize the Sparkle... Just because a polish is a glitterbomb does NOT mean that you can't add more glitter to the mix. Glitter is always encouraged. ALWAYS. 

Los Feliz Navidad turned out to be a textured glitter polish, just like I thought it might be. I can't say that it's an exact dupe for L'Oreal Too Dimensional, but it's close. I feel like this shade is a little bit lighter and a little more sheer. It's a gorgeous blue-violet polish packed with textured glitter in the same color, small gold hex glitter, and a wash of shimmer that flashes green to gold. 

Who wouldn't put more glitter on top of that? 

Orly Gossip Girl is a glitter topper from the Infamous Collection. It's a mix of small red hex glitter and large gold hex glitter. Glitter payoff is ah-mazing, actually more than what I was looking for in this particular layering. 

Did that stop me? Nope. I just went over everything with another coat of Los Feliz Navidad, turning the red and gold glitter in Gossip Girl to a nice shade of violet and greenish gold. It was the perfect compliment to what was already going on in Los Feliz Navidad. 

Because I'm not the biggest fan of a gritty finish on my nails, I added two coats of clear and a coat of Seche Vite in an attempt to smooth things out. This layering was far from smooth, but I love how a little top coat really brings out the sparkle in polishes like Los Feliz Navidad! 

I really love how this layering turned out. Even without the addition of Gossip Girl, Los Feliz Navidad is like a galaxy manicure in a bottle. I'd love to see more polishes like it in some color combinations we haven't seen yet!
