I Don't Think You're Ready for This Jelly

Hi loves :)  Happy Sunday!  I have a yummy jelly sandwich for you today.  If you don't know what that is, in the nail art world, it's when you take a jelly polish and a glitter polish- and sandwich the glitter between two layers of the jelly polish.  It's supposed to look like the glitter is floating suspended in the jelly polish.  I started out with L'oreal Berry Jealous which is a squishy hot berry shade and then I used China Glaze I'm a Go Glitter from the SURPRISE collection in the middle.  I topped it all off with another coat of Berry Jealous and there you have your Jelly Sandwich!  Take a look:

Here is Berry Jealous at two coats on it's own:
For a jelly polish this got satisfactorily opaque with just two coats.  I was very impressed!  And then to have it work so well for a jelly sandwich too...just perfect :)

I hope you enjoyed this look and that you're having a great day!  I'll see you back tomorrow :)

Song of the Day: Ben Folds- Landed

Over and out


  1. How do you get your nails to grow so good? I can grow mine out for a little ways but then the brake or split.

    1. Hey Vannah :) So, literally like a day after this mani, I had a major breakage and cut them all down to not nubbins, but just to my finger's edge. I have the same problem- I don't have naturally nice and strong nails. I have been doing a few things lately though that I think are helping: I have been using one of three good basecoats every time I swatch something, wear a manicure, or have bare nails- I never go without having one on my nails. I'm not saying these are the best out there, but what I've been using lately are Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Hardener, Orly Tough Cookie Strengthening Treatment, and Growth Spurt- a polish you can find at Sally Beauty Supply(it has a blue lid). The other thing I never miss a day on is taking an E vitamin. I hope this helps you. You won't see overnight change, but after a few weeks, I definitely noticed some growth and strength. xoxo to you, Vannah :)
