NYX Ink & Milani Gems Jelly Sandwich
Before I was never that keen on either jellies or multicolored, chunky glitters, but after learning about jelly sandwiches, I’m craving both! (As I need any more reasons to buy nail polish!)
I have to admit I bought NYX Ink and Milani Gems just because I got this idea for a jelly sandwich, and I couldn’t rest before I tried them both together. And I have to say, they make a really good couple. Ink is a gorgeous, juicy navy blue jelly. Gems is one of the countless dupes for Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday, with hex glitter in multiple sizes and colors. I’m not to keen on it alone, but it looks great in a jelly sandwich! This combination reminds me of another Lippmann, Across The Universe, so if you never got your hands on that one, this could be an affordable substitute.
Ink is very easy to apply, and if you were to wear it alone, two to three coats would be enough, depending on how opaque you’d like it. Gems goes on smoothly, too, and I used one generous coat for this mani. The whole thing is two coats Ink, one coat Gems followed by a coat of Ink on top.
I got both of these polishes from Cherry Culture, the NYX are $3.60 a bottle and the Milanis are $3.99 a bottle.
