Twinsie Tuesday: Jelly Sandwich

6 Mar

On today’s edition of Twinsie Tuesday we’re all showcasing jelly sandwiches.  This is my first jelly sandwich.  I’ve never really wanted to do one before because I just didn’t see the point.  Why would I put something pretty and sparkly on my nails only to cover it up with a semi-transparent polish?  It’s not a technique I’ve been eager to try.  However, it’s on the schedule for today, so here we go.

I didn’t have a green jelly (but have been on a green kick in case you haven’t noticed) so I made one.  It’s not very good, but it worked.  I took a bottle of top coat, added a bunch of Kleancolor Green Grass and some OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window and Sinful Colors Unicorn.  I didn’t have one of those little mixer balls to put in it, so I went out in my front yard and found a little rock to drop in the bottle.  It worked alright, but wasn’t quite heavy enough to help all that much.

I slapped a coat it my unnamed franken down, then a coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Clover, some OPI Fresh Frog of Bel Air just to the tips, then a coat of Finger Paints Flecked and finally another coat or two of my green franken.  To be honest, I don’t really like it.  The whole combination is very blah.  I doubt I’ll be trying another jelly sandwich anytime soon.

You should definitely check out what all the other ladies are doing today because I’m sure they’re better than mine.

    I love this sandwich! I also loved that you used a rock to mix up your franken :)

    I completely agree with you about questioning the point of jelly sandwiches. But that being said, yours is so subtle, it works as a polish that looks like it has flakies. Love it!

    I really love this. The green is lovely. I also love greens. How can you go wrong with a green? Green + glitter = perfection lol :)

    Thank you everyone! I’m happy to hear that you all like this samich and that maybe I’m being a little too hard on myself. :)

    I actually really like it. It’s not over the top, but if you really look at it, you can see all the complex layers.
