Hello Lacquer Luvers & Happy Pink Wednesday to you! Today I have a special post because it includes two firsts for me. I have my first jelly sandwich mani to share with you all annnnd I made my first jelly franken! I'm so excited about this mani and love how it turned out so let's get to it!
My manicure today began with a base of Essie Grow Faster followed by three coats of Color Club Raspberry Rush. Raspberry Rush is a scented polish that is part of Color Club's Wicked Sweet Collection. I was fortunate enough to win this collection on Color Club's facebook page last summer during their Fourth of July nail art contest. Of the Wicked Sweet polishes I've tried thus far, this one is my favorite! It smells incredibly yummy! The application and formula was nice, too.
You can't have a jelly sandwich mani without some glitter, right? For those of you who don't know what a jelly sandwich manicure is, it's basically a layer of glitter with a jelly polish on top. For my glitter, I used Sinful Colors Pinky Glitter. Pinky Glitter is a sheer pink base full of iridescent glitters.
Next I layered two coats of my jelly franken which I named Raspberry Jelly over Pinky Glitter. I created this franken by filling up an empty nail polish bottle with 3/4 of WetNWild Fast Dry Topcoat and 1/4 of Color Club's Raspberry Rush. This jelly over Pinky Glitter gives it such a squishy look. I love, love, LOVE this! I topped my manicure off with Color Club's clear top coat.
I am really happy with how my first jelly sandwich mani came out and my first jelly franken. I can't wait to try more of these! So luvs, what do you all think of this manicure? Have any of you ever wore a jelly sandwich mani or frankened a jelly polish? Tell me all about it below in the comments! As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo!
