Glitter Bombs and Sandwiches

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 6/27/2011 08:47:00 PM
Check here where I blogged about some glitter polishes to scream for. I even stopped by another Forever 21 to see if I could find any other glitters like these. But, alas...no.

I did this mani yesterday and it got bumped to the front of the blog. Clear the area...glitter bomb coming through!

I started off with a light lavender pastel shade from Color Club. The one I used is called 'Secret Rendezvous.'
I, then, layered the Forever 21 newly-acquired 'Purple/Silver' polish...

Ta da!!! I put one top coat of Color Club's 'Eco Chic' and the glitter barely feels gritty.


Then, I wondered if I could do the manicure 'sandwich'...

My middle finger looks better for the sheerness of coverage. However, it's wacked by a cuticle bed that grows boingy.

Even though 'Secret Rendezvous' is not a jelly, it's a creme, I got a lot closer to replicating the sandwich manicure. The sandwich manicure is where a base color is laid down first, then followed by a clear base glitter polish. Last, it is topped with either the base color again or a sheer polish that lets the glitter slightly show through. It works best with sheer jellies but I used a creme. And, I've seen this on other blogs as well.

At one of the stores I worked at today, one of the employees fawned over my nails. That's enough for me to not change them out for...oh, 3 days, which is long time for a nail blogger. Even longer for someone like me that doesn't care for sandwiches.

I love the glitter sandwich! I just did my first one. I like it in the purple colors too.

GLITTER BOMB! Ka-BOOM! LOL I like the idea of the glitter sandwich but I haven't tried it yet. I have an aversion to glitter bombs. Not the polish itself, but the removal. Gag.
