This paper is dedicated to the study of the topologies and nesting configurations of the components of the zero set of monochromatic random waves. We prove that the probability of observing any diffeomorphism type and any nesting arrangement among the zero set components is strictly positive for waves of large enough frequencies. Our results are a consequence of building Laplace eigenfunctions in euclidean space whose zero sets have a component with prescribed topological type or an arrangement of components with prescribed nesting configuration.
