ABC Challenge: "J"
Howdy everyone! Another Wednesday (well, Tuesday evening), another ABC Challenge! Today's letter is "J" and I've got a humdinger for you! This manicure was definitely an experiment and one I'm happy to say seems to have worked out well, but I'll let you all be the judge of that! Take a gander:
You ready for the "J"s? What you see here is Julep's January and Jordan in a jelly sandwich! Did I get enough "J"s in?? Now, technically, January is described on Julep's website as a "tomato red creme", so in that sense, calling this a jelly sandwich is a stretch. This is where the experiment comes in. January doesn't really have that creme consistency, being more of a sheer, so I figured I'd try using it as a jelly and see what shook out.
And this is it. Jordan is a gunmetal hex and micro glitter in a clear base. The micro glitters give this combo a pretty red shimmer, almost like a flakie, in between the layers of January. I wish I could have gotten better photos of that shimmer, the above macro was the best I could get.
Yay for experiments that work out! Please take a moment and check out the other ladies participating in the ABC Challenge. You can find their posts via the thumbnails below.
Thanks so much for reading!
