Diamond Desire

I just don’t get tired of glitter nowadays, I need it in all kinds of combinations. That’s why I decided to make a glitter/jelly sandwich today. No, it’s not something you eat, it’s a way of layering glitter and jelly polishes that creates a “underwater glitter” effect on the nails. You start out with the jelly underneath, then a coat (or more) of glitter, then finish it off with a coat of jelly over the glitter. I’ve never tried this technique before, but I’m stunned by the results!

For this manicure I started with two easy coats of Revlon Just Tinted Desire, a pink jelly that dries to a satin-y finish on its own. Then I added a coat of Petites Pink Diamond, a combination of big and small baby pink glitters in a clear base. I added a coat of Desire over Pink Diamond, and finished it all off with Seche Vite.

I have to say I love this combination! It’s so pretty and light, but still with some excitement in the glitter bits caught beneath the shield of jelly. Now I want jellies in every color to make a bunch of sammies on my nails!
Have you tried any interesting combinations of jelly and glitter lately?

  6. Oh my, this is one delicious sandwhich! The pinks are so gorgeous and the sandwhich effect creates so much depth <3

  7. I’m not a huge pink fan, but my favorite “sandwich” these days is Revlon Just Tinted “Mystical,” Pure Ice in “Spit Fire,” another coat of “Mystical,” a coat of Confetti “Tiara,” and a final coat of “Mystical” before top coat. “Mystical” darkens it enough that I like it despite the pink-ness. =)
