4th of July Sandwich Day!

Hello my lovelies let me first say I am sorry I haven't posted in a while my project has literally consumed me! What project I am sure you're wondering since I have never mention it, I was inspired to try and make my own polishes! So I have been reading, researching, learning and experimenting since Feb/March, let me tell you its not easy! I can't tell you how many glitters I've tested and still testing to this day! So one of my creations I get to feature in this post! Oh and your probably wondering about the sandwich day huh well Polly Polish came up with the theme and its layering a Jelly Polish over glitters. I had a little problem I don't own any Jelly Polishes!!! So I took a crash course and made one for this post! HAH!!! :D

The 4th of July glitter polished used in the photos was given to a little girl that just found out she has type 1 diabetes, I hope it brightens her day a little after finding out such life changing news. My thoughts are with her.

This is pre-Jelly Sandwich 4th of July sparkly!

Its a Jelly Sandwich!

I don't know much about Jelly Sandwiches this is my first time attempting it, I think I should have only used one coat of the jelly polish I made, it came out darker than expected with two coats.

For this mani everything was created by me, the base is a color I made after using an OPI that I didn't like and could not find a replacement blue that I wanted to use.
The glitters I put together for 4th of July mani and the blue jelly I created as well.
