Happy Jelly Sandwich Day! Today’s theme was a bit of a challenge for me as I don’t have many jelly polishes and the few ideas I had turned into major fails.
To see what I came up with, be sure to read more after the jump!
For today’s #PolishDay mani I used one coat of Essie Marshmellow as a base, one coat of Liberty from Amy’s Nail Boutique, a coat of Seche Vite then followed by Marshmellow again and one more coat of Seche Vite. I wanted to use Seche Vite over Liberty to smooth it since Liberty was a little gritty and I wanted the final coat of Marshmellow to be spread evenly.
I got a bit frustrated because it seemed like no matter how long I spent trying to clean up my edges, I had either Seche Vite on around my nails or Marshmellow and I just could not get them clean! I’m starting to wonder if I should just stay away from jelly polishes all together now, haha. I had to take pictures indoors and this was the best out of all I took smh.
For those of you who are curious, I’ve included two pictures of Liberty over Marshmellow, one coat without a top coat. As you can see, there are red and white microglitter, red and blue hex glitter, blue and white bar glitter, smaller blue square and hex glitter, blue and silver/white/translucent (hard to tell which sometimes) stars. This is one coat but with some red, blue and stars placed on the nail. The polish is chock full of the microglitter and bars but the larger pieces have to be placed. It seems like the blue hexes dominate my bottle or at least that’s what is on the brush until I go searching for a red hex or a couple stars.
Liberty was an impulse buy that I’m pretty happy with. This was my first polish from Amy’s Boutique and there were a couple others I had my eye on.
This is going to publish while I’m at work tomorrow so I won’t be able to update this post until I get home. Be sure to check back for links to the rest of the blogs who participated in #SandwichPD !
