Sandwich Day

Hello loves! How are you all doing? Today's post is a blue jelly sandwich for Sandwich Day! If you don't know what that is let me fill you in. 



Polish Days is when a lot of bloggers decide to post a certain manicure or polish at the same time. And when I found out that the next theme is something I could do too, I just had to participate. I did this in a rush but I had to do it even with exams and everything. So here we go!


I started with a base of OPI No Room For The Blues. This is one of my favorites because application is flawless and it dries fast, so it makes for a perfect base for nail art. The glitter is NYX Carnival (2 coats). I'm debating if I should do a comparison between this and Essence Circus Confetti. Please let me know if you would like me to do one! Finally, I layered one coat of the jelly, which is Aden Cosmetics 92. This dries to a matte finish so it needed a coat of top coat as well.

I don't know what it is with jelly sandwiches, but I've noticed they are pretty hard to photograph. They come out more flat in photos compared to real life. So I took some pictures in direct light to bring out the shine. There was no sun the day I did this so no sun pictures unfortunately. I really enjoyed wearing this and ended up wearing it for 5 days between exams and all. 


If you want to take part in future events check out this page to find out how. I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did and thanks for stopping by! 

PS: I hope all the links are working and the names are correct. I will be adding more links later. Special thanks to Hannah for putting them all together!

Later edit: Sorry it took me so long to update the links but it was night over here. Hope everything is ok now!

  5. Why not? It's such a fun and creative way to layer. Plus people will never figure out what you have on your nails hehe.
