I've never tried a jelly sandwich before, and I've been lusting after Revlon Whimsical, so I thought I'd put a milky sheer polish over some glitter to quell the lemming. Since the jelly is creamy, does this make it... an ice cream sandwich? :P
For the sheer polish, I mixed two different purple cremes (ulta3 Berry and Mode XOXO) with ulta3 Lily White, then added a load of clear polish and shook like crazy. To give you an idea of the sheerness, it took three thick-ish coats for full opacity on the bare nail. It was still a little too opaque as I later found out.
Then I sandwiched Milani Gems in between, with two layers of purple franken as the bottom "bread" and one layer as the top. The franken covered up the glitter more than I expected, so it was a bit tricky trying to keep the effect even. My index finger was the least successful, can you tell?
Naturally, not being able to leave a mani alone meant I painted Rimmel Lycra Pro Matte Topcoat over it after two days. I think I like it better glossy though, it's a bit overly drab without shine, although the weather had also gone crappy by then, which could explain my bias :P
The glitter in Gems is a bit smaller than the stuff in Whimsical, but I'm pretty happy with the results! Lemming successfully saved from cliff-diving into irrecoverable debt... for now...
