Day 17: Glitter

7:45 PM Laura 18 Comments

All right, I realize I said I would day days 17 and 18 today, but today's kind of a whopper so I'll do 18 and 19 tomorrow!

If you were on MUA a while back (before the drama llamas rolled in), you'll have witnessed the jelly sandwich craze. A jelly sandwich generally consists of multiple jelly polishes layered. They can be layered with other jellies, cremes, shimmers, etc., but are most delicious when paired with glitters. I love me a good sammich so I decided to have a go at making one.

Here's what I used:

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Raspberry Race, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Strobe Light, and Revlon Just Tinted Desire

Not as insane as my last one, but still nice. Although I must admit, I kind of got sick of all the pink glitter. Barbie called, she wants her manicure back! 

But wait!? What's that you say? You want MOAR jelly sammich!?!?!


WELL OKAY THEN! 

Let me warn you, this is a big one. Here are all the polishes I used (in order):

OPI Roadhouse Blues, WnW Fast Dry Party of Five Glitters, Revlon Royal, Revlon Colada Fizz, and Sally Hansen Strobe Light

I JUST COULDN'T STOP! And I'm so glad I didn't, because this is what I ended up with:

O. M. G. Tell me that is not the winningest mani you've ever seen. Seriously. Now THAT is a party. I am astounded by my genius. It's so awesome that I kind of lose my train of thought whenever I look at it. Completely derailed. Like


"So hey guys, I was wondering if you could help me with fgsfdsdjklghslg. Wait, what was I talking about? Sorry, my mani distracted me. I won't let it happen again!"

or

"(someone asking a very important question that I'm not hearing because I'm admiring my nails) So what would you say about that, Laura?"

  15. @Leslie: Yeah, I had to foil it off, but man I had NO REGRETS!

    @Larie: It actually didn't take that long! And I did thin coats so it actually didn't bother me by being bulky.

    @Meg: Lol. Yes.

    @Naomi: Whatever you say, madam!

    @Fingers: Some very disturbing trolling goin' on, caused a mass exodus. It's big potatoes!

    @KarenD: It's really wonderful! I love it so much, it's so chic looking.

    @Beauty on a College Budget: I think the layers were worth it. :)
