This Wednesday Is A Pink Sandwich

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 6/01/2011 08:14:00 AM
Wednesday = PINK!!! I'm in awesome company; here are others that wear pink on Wednesdays too.

 A favorite blog that I follow, Glitta Gloves, has done a couple of 'sandwich' manicures, in which she was inspired by another nail blogger.

A 'sandwich' manicure consists of a base jelly polish, a glitter polish and then, topped with the same jelly color.  Kirsten does a beautiful job. I'm inspired. Let's see what I can do...

Here are the players...
From the Bloom collection, Wet 'n Wild's 'Laughing Lilac'. Next is an awesome pink, flakie glitter from Claire's. And what I'm going to use for the sheer topcoat is Color Club's 'Incognto' from their Alter Ego collection.

First is the base color. This is the 'Laughing Lilac', which I love that name....
I only did one coat because I want to keep the sheer look. But this one is a shiner, isn't it?

Now comes the glitter with Claire's pink flakie...
 And finally, 'Incognito'...

 Meh...mine falls flat. One of two things happened. One, my base coat may have not been pale enough. Glitta Gloves uses the same polish color for the bottom and top coat. And second, my glitter is in a colored jelly base. I see that Glitta Gloves uses a bolder glitter but set in a clear polish.

On its own and not in a comparison (like me against Miss Universe!), it is just alright. But it can't even be called worthy of a now famous manicure 'sandwich.'

Kirsten, you are the best! Thanks for the continued inspiration. And I'll try to do better next time.
