COMMENTS: After the previous manicure I still wanted more jelly-finish polish and glitter, so I decided to finally try one of the OPI "sorbets" that I managed to get with a coupon at JCP. This one is lovely and applies beautifully. I grabbed some glitter to match. Sadly, these gorgeous iridescent glitters lose their color if mixed in a bottle with nail polish. I placed them individually between the second and third coat of color.
Oh, and yes, I cut my nails again! They were getting too long :)
I love your shorter nails and this color looks great on you! I've been rocking the Sorbets all summer - I liked them much more than I thought I would. They also look really great with flakies!ReplyDelete
I love the lenght. And great colours. Must get some Jelly'sReplyDelete
Love what you did with this. Must be red(ish) jelly mood lately as I put up a franken of mine. Your short nails make my long nails look icky. LOL I do love your nail beds and nails. Fabulous!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the info on these! I have a blue glitter like that I got at Sally Beauty and wanted to franken, but haven't tested them.ReplyDelete
Did you place the glitter with a tweezers? I am amazed at this manicure, it's so amazing, the glitter and the jelly. It is so understated, which is awesome.
the nail color looks so pretty!ReplyDelete
I do love the jellies!! And these looks excelent on you!ReplyDelete
What a great combo, you really make me want to try a jelly/glitter sandwich as well!ReplyDelete
Jellies and flakies are a match made in polish heaven, as always you rock it!!!ReplyDelete
Sooo pretty! Love it!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comments!ReplyDelete
@Paillette: I placed the glitter with one of my dotting tools. If I dampen the tip I can then pick up glitter with it, and it's much easier than using tweezers because these pieces are tiny!
Lovely! I wish I could wear jellies, but my nails seem to get so dirty underneath between hand washings when I wear them that it's just gross...Ok, so they probably get dirty regardless, but with jellies I can see it.ReplyDelete
Very pretty. I have a jelly sammich of right now! Are those the glitters from sally's? I just bought some for frankening, and I was hoping they didn't melt. I have the white/iridescent ones.ReplyDelete
@Pam: The glitter is from a nail supply place in downtown LA, so I'm not sure if they're the same...ReplyDelete
I took my bottle of GMG and put a big scoop of SpectraFlair in it. It makes a GORGEOUS holo if you are inclined to decant and experiment...ReplyDelete
I love jellies and glitters so this on is a winner ;)ReplyDelete
O.M.G this is freaking awesome! By far one of the prettiest mani's I've seen as of late!ReplyDelete
I love this look! I have GMG I've got to try it with large glitters!ReplyDelete
I have that kind of glitter too. I mixed it into my Harry Potter franken and it turned into plain silver pieces. And it made my franken dusty-ish too. :DReplyDelete
