Pink Wednesday: matte pink and red jelly sandwich

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Wednesday! Yayyy another pink Wednesday post! I'm going to be burnt out on pink soon... I'm even wearing it today as I type this. Hopefully I'll have that mani to share with you soon, if I can get good pictures!

Today is just a quick one - I've been obsessed with doing jelly sandwich manicures that look like candy lately. OBSESSED. I decided to try this one and add a twist. I started out by frankening a pink jelly, because I wanted it to be obviously pink and slightly more opaque (and darker) than most of the ones I have. I used mostly clear, then added some Essie creme pinks until I was happy with the colour. So, two coats of that, then a coat of LA Girls Glitter Addict Animate, which is sick (I love red glitter - someone told me it looks like a disease but I don't care!) and then two coats of the pink franken over top, just to make it look really submerged. I was happy with that for all of five seconds, so I added two coats of China Glaze Matte Magic to make it reallyyyyyyyy matte. Then I was finally done!






The only downside: as you can see in the macro shot, that was a lot of polish to have dry, so I woke up with some small dents. Boo! :( Ah well, win some and lose some, right?

What do you lovelies think? Is there a colour you're wearing more than usual lately? Mine is pink... so weird, isn't it? I hope the rest of your week is fabulous!

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!

  12. AH! I ♥ this! I wish you didn't say that part about the disease because I was all like "oOoOoOoO...!" and then.."UGH!" BUT! I still like it! What I wear lately is nothing because my children love to never give me a free second, so if there is something on my nails it's smudge right after :P
