My first attempt at jelly sandwich manicure

Thursday, January 30, 2014
I've seen many sandwich manicures during my time in the nail art community. I was drawn to the stubble (yet still noticeable) appearance of the glitter on those manicure. And yet, I haven't got the chance to try it out myself. I don't own any 'real' jellies, so that was a little obstacle (putting it mildly).

I decided t hat I still want to try it, so I had to make a small shortcut in order for this to work. Instead of using a jelly nail polish, I grabbed one of my (very) cheap polishes, that I could never get to be fully opaque. I used the holographic glitter, and ended up amazed by the beauty of it through the red jelly.
The photos below are my best attempt of catching the holographic effect.

My base color is Ga-de Hot passion, which is a very dark and deep red. The glitter here is H&M Jo is in the house, and on top of it I used GK 741.
In conclusion, I believe that is using the right shades for this technique, I can create myself some sort of a dupe for Zoya Payton and Dream (that I've got in my wishlist ;) ).
