Tuesday's Talons ft My Candy Shop / My First Glitter Sandwich

Currently watching: The Shawshank Redemption

Good evening girls!

Today I'd like to show you my very first glitter sandwich which also happens to be based on Deborah Lippmann's Candy Shop!
 

I started by painting my nails with two coats of Lm shade 21.


Then I added a coat of Essence Circus Confetti, a clear polish packed full of multi-coloured glitter.


Next, I added another coat of my pink Lm polish, thus finishing my very first glitter sandwich!  I know glitter sandwiches are usually done with jellies but this shimmer polish seemed to work just as well and I loved how it turned the glitter particles pastel.


However, part of me wondered if I should take it a step further so I applied a coat of Rimmel mattifying topcoat before deciding matte pink doesn't suit me and applying a normal topcoat to bring back the shine.


What do you think girls?  Have you tried glitter sandwiches before?

Bye for now,
Laura

  1. That's really pretty, I have been looking for some pastel jellies to try this with that aren't too expensive.

    I may have to resume the search...

    1. Thanks :-) Jellies can be really hard to find but apparently mixing a little polish with a lot of a clear polish creates a jelly so it might be worth trying to make your own...

  2. That's a very nice choice of polishes! I agree with you though, it looks way cooler when it's shiny :)

    1. Thanks. Maybe another colour would have looked nice matte but this one just didn't!
