ASBMF Challenge: Day 3 Glitter Sammy

There is a chance that I went a little crazy with this mani, lots of layers, but I really like how it turned out!

I have never done a glitter/jelly sandwich before but it has been on my tries list for awhile.  I had a hard time deciding what colors to use and then I picked up a couple colors from the OPI Ballet Collection. I have been loving a white mani lately, so I decided to use OPI Don't Touch My Tutu and My Pointe Exactly as an accent.

I started by applying 2 coats of DTMT and MYE.  There is not much difference between the polishes in these photos.





I added 1 coat of OPI Rainbow Connection and Pirouette My Whistle.  I had a lot of trouble getting glitter on my brush with RC.  It actually started to get annoying! PMW had a thicker formula that was easier to apply and so pretty!




Another coat of DTMT and MPE. Here is where it starts coming together!





I didn't think there was enough "WOW" in the mani so I went back and added another coat of RC and PMW.






And another coat of DTMT and MPE.







Topped off with 2 coats of Out the Door.






I think the end result is simply gorgeous!  They both look like really cool frankens! (Even though I have way too many layers of polish on nails!)

  3. I think this turned out really pretty. A subtle way to wear quite bold glitters. I agree though, that this will be... hard... to take off xD
