31 Day Challenge - Day 15 - Jelly Sammich...Kinda...

Well I should be working on my Final Exam right now, but instead I have decided to come and write this blog post.  Procrastination at it's finest...don't you think?  

Today's challenge day is centered around the Jelly Sandwich.  The technique where you take a jelly polish and layer it with some glitter.  Out of my stash of 80 some odd nail polishes, I only have about two jelly polishes.  It's not that I don't like them, but in the world of nail art, they can be rather impractical.  Also, to use them as a base for a nail art thing can be kind of annoying too since you have to use so much of it to get it to layer some what decently.  I don't know, the whole jelly thing I guess isn't for me.

For this manicure, I had an idea of what I was going to do for a jelly sandwich, then I purchased my first holo polish.  That polish - Color Club Halo Hue Cloud 9.  I couldn't resist using it.  Plus, I was going to a concert and I figured that it would be the most PERFECT polish to wear.  I decided, since you know, I'm not fond of jelly's, I would jelly sandwich an accent and let the rest be some holo goodness.

Please excuse the pictures, the weather has been kind of cruddy and outdoor pictures are rather impossible...

Colors Used:
  • Color Club - Cloud 9
  • Sinful Colors - Daddy's Girl
  • China Glaze - Make a Spectacle
Color Club Cloud 9 is a gorgeous lavender polish with AMAZING holo in it.  Seriously, I love it.  These pictures were taken with flash, so the holo stands out a tad more, but in day light, the holo stands out very well.  Application of the polish was great.  With two coats, I had full coverage.  I may have to go back and purchase the green one.  

The jelly sandwich was made with Daddy's Girl, a purple jelly, and Make A Spectacle, a clear glitter.  The pictures don't show how cool it really looked.  Plus, let's face it, who is looking at the jelly sandwich.  Another thing I hate about jellies is how fast they wear.  Yes, I only have a few, but they both do the same thing with their tip wear.  It annoys me and you can't really touch up a tip on a jelly sandwich.

What do you think? Do you have any of the Color Club Halo Hues?  What are your favorite jelly polishes?!
