Okay, I am so new to the nail blogging world. I have been addicted to YouTube videos on nail everything, but didn't know there were so many amazing blogs out there to help feed my obsession!
After reading MANY blogs, I learned about jelly sandwich manicures. I had no clue about these before last week...I know...they are old news to most of you probably! But, bear with me as I share my mini adventure!
I discovered one very important thing tonight as I attempted two different jelly sandwich manicures...I don't have appropriate glitter polishes for this! I did order a couple of indy ones this past weekend that are flying my way as I type and they may work better than what I had.
My first attempt used Finger Paints Pop Rock Pink (which is way more coral than pink) as the base, Finger Paints Gourd or Bad? glitter & LA Colors hex silver glitter. Finally a layer of the Pop Rock Pink over the top of it all:
I really don't like this manicure at all. I seems too thick and messy for me. I guess I just don't have the proper polishes for this technique.
Here is my other attempt on a nail wheel:
This one isn't THAT bad, but the heart shaped glitter I used totally disappeared! lol I used Nicole by OPI Respect the World as the base and then used Nicole by OPI Honeydew you Love me? and LA Colors hex silver glitter with another coat of the blue over it all. It is a little better, but like I said, no blue hearts are visible anymore.
Now, before anyone says anything, I know my photos are HORRIBLE! I wish I knew how all of you bloggers got such amazing pictures of your nail art!! When I did my paper art blog, I was a pro at photos, but this is a whole new ballgame. Any tips are greatly appreciated!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
