Howdy all! I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I am so excited about today's manicure that I just want to get right to it. Remember this manicure I did the other day? Today's mani is kind of like that one's more colorful cousin. Alright, here we go!
Isn't it so pretty? Sorry for all the photos, but I love this one so much! The nude glitter sandwich from the other day reminded me that I needed to try different color combinations. And, I must say, this manicure has made me finally fall in love with jellies. There is just something about their translucency that is just so beautiful, you can't help but love 'em!
For this one, I started with 2-3 coats of China Glaze Ride the Waves alternating each nail with 2-3 coats of Sinful Colors Dream On. After those dried, I brushed on Wet 'n' Wild's Beautiful but Dangerous glitter which has fuchsia and bright blue square glitter mixed with gold and black smallish hexagonal glitter. I decided I needed some other sizes of glitter so I spot coated on some O.P.I. Servin' Up Sparkle; tiny holographic and larger hexagonal holographic glitters in a clear base. After all the glitter dried, I added another coat of Ride the Waves on the blue nails. On the pink nails, I initially did another coat of Dream On, but it dried a little too thick, so I swapped it out for Wet 'n' Wild's Fuchsiarama which is more of a true jelly. I ended up using 2 coats of Seche Vite plus a coat of Jessica Brilliance (my SV ran out!), even with the jelly on top, the glitter was a bit of a piggy eating up my topcoat.
