It's Sandwichin' Time!

Hey all, me again! Told ya there was gonna be something exciting soon ;)

Today I'm participating in a really fun group post thing coordinated by lovely Hannah at Polly Polish. Aside from being a total sweetheart and planning this whole thing, she also says things like 'knob' 'I'm chuffed' and the likes so how can you not, at the very least, enjoy reading her stuff?! It's always fun for me to chat with her on twitter.

Onto nails! We're all doing jelly sandwiches! I really wanted to come up with something cool for this challenge but I had the hardest time picking combinations for the sandwiches. Finally after much planning, I stumbled onto something I liked.

I started with one coat of Revlon Royal, added a coat of Milani Gems and picked some big hexes from a random Forever 21 glitter polish. Then, instead of another coat of Royal, I added Milani Rad Purple which is supposed to be a purple neon, but is actually a berry colored jelly and finished with Seche Vite to actually get it to dry.




And because, you know, matte glitter.



Mmm...I much prefer how this looked glossy, it looked juicier. I was aiming to get a blurple sandwich with this layering but the polishes didn't really blend how I thought. It just looked blue at the edges and purple where the glitter was but I am happy with the final outcome! It also looked purplier when matte.

Alright, that's it from me, I'm all talked out for today. Remember to see what the other ladies did for their polish day below!

  9. These are freaking fabulous! I really like how it shifts from blue to purple in places instead of blending. This is so not helping my urge to buy all the jellies. I need some Milanis in my life.
