Spoiled by Wet n Wild ~ Ants in my Pants

Spoiled by Wet n Wild ~ Ants in my Pants   
Blackened base with multisized red glitter

This polish has been a lemming since I first laid my eyes on it. I knew I had to have it. And I bounced around happily as my polish swapping buddy #1 Katee from A Girl and her Polish sent it to me. That was the moment of the month, that’s for sure!!! Thank you so much, Katee!!! <3

I decided to layer it over black. My guess is that it would take at least 4 coats to make this fully opaque, and as some of you know by now: I’m not the most patient person in the world. So: layered over one coat of Essence “Black is back”, which is my favourite black crème. It’s fully opaque in one coat and fast drying.

I painted two coats of “Ants in my Pants” over the black. The application sure was a challenge. The brush is friggin’ wide, and even though I usually prefer a brush on the wide side, this is perhaps taking it a bit too far! And the formula is quite thick. But I managed.

I chose another polish for my ring finger and my thumb, namely Spoiled’s “Pick your Poison”, which I reviewed here. Two coats of that. Here’s what it all looked like, all sealed up under a coat of Poshé top coat.

And here it is from another angle. I really like this!

Stamping time! I wanted some black on the accent nails, so I stamped a pattern from Mash plate number 48, and used a no name black stamping polish.

Here it is with an additional coat of Poshé top coat.

 And another picture, because it’s so pretty:

I totally love “Ants in my pants”, it lives up to all my expectations. Do you like it?
