Sparkling Jelly Sandwich

I am really excited to share this mani with you guys today!  I have seen lots of people doing "jelly sandwich" manis a lot lately.  It's becoming quite trendy and popular.  I decided to give it another go because the last time I tried one I wasn't very happy with the results. This time I am thrilled with the result!

LOTS of pics because I loved the mani so much! :)






I really did not expect to love this as much as I do!  What you are looking at is two Essie Marshmallow with Girly Bits Hippity Hop in between them.  Then I topped the whole thing off with a layer of Out the Door Northern Lights top coat.

I loved the way this particular glitter worked in the mani because I felt it wasn't too overpowering or chunky looking.  It have a more speckled, delicate look.  It wore like iron for almost a week, which is a good thing because I didn't want to take it off!

What do you think of the Jelly sandwich trend?  What about sheer jelly polishes in general?

  4. Definitely loving the jelly sandwich trend, and love jelly polishes in general. I usually keep my nails very short, so VNL isn't an issue with jellies for me. I love their squishiness!
