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?
