Twinsie Tuesday: Jelly Sandwich

Good morning! This week’s Twinsie Tuesday Challenge: Jelly Sandwich.


This week's lovely theme were jelly sandwiches - on our nails! I should add that I sort of cheated. Although, I have never done a jelly sandwich; 1. Glitter removal is a horrid process, 2. I don't own too many jelly polishes. So hopefully you all would enjoy this. I personally feel sort of blahhh on it.

3D? Sorry for the cuticles. It was the top coat that I added too much. It flooded my cuticles and was peeling.

I sort of cheated because I used a tiny more opaque color for my base. However, I kind of like the way that this turned out. If you look closely at like it, it almost looks 3D, like the glitters are popping out at you. I really liked that part about it. The rest was so,so.

For the base I use Wet n Wild Tickled Pink. For the glitter I used Milani Gems. For the jelly, I used Sally Hansen Shell We Dance? I actually used a lot of layers. In the order of the way that I jellied this sandwich; I used 1 coat for the base coat, 1 coat of glitter, 3 coats of jelly, then 1 coat of glitter again, another coat of jelly then a top coat. A lot right? But I'm really glad I did the first 3 coats of jelly because above ^^ it looks 3D - to me at least. Oh, and does it sort of remind you of Candy Shop from Deborah Lippman? So, I guess the jelly sandwich wasn't too much of a fail eh? What do you think of it?

Have you ever tried jellying sandwiches before?
