Hey everyone! Today’s manicure is a jelly sandwich. Think I’m wearing tiny bread and jelly on my nails? Continue reading to see what I’m really talking about!
Some nail polish is not meant to build up and become opaque. A “jelly” finish is one of those polishes. It gets it’s nickname from the translucent juicy look of jelly. You may have heard the term jelly sandwich in the nail polish community. That is taking a translucent jelly base, adding some glitter on top and covering with another layer of the jelly polish. It makes the glitter look as if it’s floating in the middle. This is what I have to show you today. I have also seen pictures of people using stamping between the jelly layers. That also looks really cool!
I started with 3 coats of Deborah Lippmann Supermodel. This is a juicy red jelly polish. You’ll see that 3 coats still shows my nail line very well.
These pictures are all outside in either sun or shade…
Then I added 2 coats of Color Club Si Vous Please!. This is a clear based glitter topper with iridescent and holo micro glitter. Then on all but my middle finger I added 1 more coat of Supermodel. The glitter is suspended between the layers and just glows beautifully in real life. I left the middle finger without the top layer so you can see what it would like on it’s own.
Inside in the shade…
Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.
