Love and Beauty - Green and a jelly sandwich!

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 2 before glitter, 1 after glitter
TOPCOAT?: Yes
SOURCE: Forever 21 store last year, Glitter from Ulta (Ulta - Pinata Yada Yada)
COMMENTS: This is one of the colors my hubby bought me when we went to get a gift card for a niece last year. I've tried wearing it on it's own, but didn't like the way it looked. Now I've found a fabulous way to wear it though! My jelly sandwich = 2 "slices" of color, 1 "slice" of glitter, and a final "slice" of color. Love it! Um yeah, and I took a lot of photos....



Not such a flattering color on its own (2 coats):


Add glitter (One coat of Ulta - Pinata Yada Yada):


And one more coat of color:






Look at all the fun possibilities!!!  These are all with 1 coat color, 1 coat glitter, 1 coat color.

  2. Ok, this is the first jelly sandwich manicure that I liked. It might be because of the green base. I'm going to have to try and do this one.

  3. I really like these sandwiches. Does the glitter smooth out pretty well? Looks even better on the nail!

  4. This is such a cute glitter sandwich.
    Not even sure which I like best off your wheel, but leaning towards the left side, the blues and greens

  5. This kinda reminds me of party puke. LOL Or glitter that got stuck in that horrible green slime stuff that used to come in big containers. Either way, it looks awesome!

  15. Thanks for all the great comments!

    @loodie loodie loodie: The glitter lays flat and after the final layer of color and a coat of topcoat it's all completely smooth.

    @Jossie: You don't need to get the Ulta version, Wet N Wild and Milani both have very similar versions of this glitter mix (and JQ mentioned one from Claire's as well). Of course you can use any glitter you want really, as long as you can see the base color through it.

    @rmcandlelight (nailsbeautiqued): I'll try to make another post on this.

    @nail loopy: See comment above for jellies. Jellies are also super easy to make using clear polish and a creme. You can also use any multi-size glitter.
