Ah, it's the weekend! We were promised horrible weather, but it looks pretty nice outside to me! I'm going to take a stroll in to town later (this will undoubtedly result in some nail polish being purchased...).
So last week you voted for me to give a jelly sandwich a go. I've dodged this technique for quite some time, the main issue being that I don't own any jellies...
But anyway, that's not going to stop me! I decided to use China Glaze Manhunt - when I first used that I thought it had jelly-like qualities, it's quite glassy and squishy-looking.
After two coats of Manhunt, I used two coats of Barry M Hologram, which is made up of medium holographic silver hexes. I was going to add one more coat of Manhunt to finish off, but then panic struck. Would it be too opaque? Or maybe too streaky?
So I cheated. Instead I finished off with a coat of 2true Glitterati Shade 3, which is essentially a pre-made jelly sandwich. You can still see the later of Barry M glitter through it though, so I think overall it ended up being very pretty.
I can't believe how difficult this was to photograph though! It was super squishy-looking and shiny, but the photo has just made it look totally flat! Any tips for how to capture this sort of look well on camera?
Are you a fan of jelly sandwiches? Or would you go for quick cheat like me...?
Pop on over to my Facebook page to vote for which technique I should give a go next week :)
