Guest Post
Please welcome Lauren from A Polish Change! 
I am featured on her blog today too, so make sure to stop by her blog (and follow because her blog is awesome)!
______________________________________________



When Amy and I arranged to swap blog posts, I was immediately excited but then was hit with a tsunami wave of nausea (C'mon, it's not every day that you get to intrude on the web page of your "Nail God").   I'm feeling Nail-Venturous was the first blog that I ever stalked, and Amy's creative and beautiful nails inspired me to start my own blog last month.  Needless to say, this called for something special- my first glitter sandwich!

I'm sure all of you know what it is, but just in case you don't:  the sandwich manicure is where a base color is laid down first, followed by an clear base glitter polish, and then topped with either the base color again or a sheer polish that lets the glitter shine on through.

Decisions, decisions….Over a good coat of base coat to protect my nails, I painted a thin coat of Essie's Little Brown Dress.  For my glitter layer, I chose Crown Me Already from OPI's recent Ms Universe Collection.  And if that wasn't enough, I topped it all off with Essie's Bordeaux (a burgundy jelly).  







And there you go, my kind of sandwich, calorie and fat-free!  Many thanks again to Amy for swapping posts with me.  If you'd like to check out my blog, A Polish Change, please do so at polishchanges.blogspot.com ... it's not nearly as "polished" as this site, but I'm trying!!

Make sure to stop by Lauren's blog! She is always posting awesome manicures and new ideas such as the one in this post. I never thought about using two different polishes as the "bread" of my jelly sandwich. Have you?
