Glitter Bombs and Sandwiches

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.

  • Love the glitter polish! I'm personally not really digging the sandwich nails. But thats just me. Still love glitter thought!
