This was my first attempt at a jelly sandwich manicure. I think it turned out very well. I actually wore it for four days! This is a new jelly finish polish that I bought from fabuloustreet.com/ (Remember I hauled about it last week. Click here to see that post.). Capturing the true color of this polish was very difficult. I could only capture the true color outdoors in direct sunlight (which washed out the beauty of the manicure, but oh well, atleast I caught the true color of the polish. And you can see the glitter quite well).
Generally I like to take my pictures indoors, but this is what the polished looked like when I took the photo indoors--NOTHING like the true color.
Isn't that insane how lighting can change the color of a polish that dramatically in a photo?! Anyways, the base coat is two coats of Nfu Oh JS-16, followed by one coat of OPI Traffic Stopper Cooper, followed by one thin coat of Nfu Oh JS-16. Here are some more photos for you to enjoy.
In the following photos, I wanted to show you what the manicure looked like without that final top coat of Nfu Oh JS-16. As you can see the glitter pops out more dramatically. In the next two photos, it is two coats of Nfu Oh JS-16 and one coat of OPI.
In these two close up photos, you can really see the difference that last top coat of the jelly polish does for the manicure.
