Let's refer to Sarah's checklist of swoonage:
- Black and white glitter
- Jelly sandwich
- Light colors
This manicure has all three! Isn't it just so darling and squishy and tasty, like cute little nails made of cookies and cream ice cream?
Mine obviously looks a little different than the one on The Sneakerette. The glitter I used was Sonnetarium Samurai Princess instead of Lynnderella Connect the Dots, and it's denser and busier than the look on the original post.
My jelly sandwich was made using Essie Marshmallow. I started with two coats of it (if you recreate this, you only need one coat to start), then one coat of the glitter, one coat of Marshmallow again, and one more coat of the glitter. The reason I would recommend only starting with one coat of the Essie is that this manicure got quite thick, and the sheerness of one coat wouldn't have showed up underneath all of the additional layers, anyway.
The black and white glitter, Sonnetarium Samurai Princess, is quite lovely. As I mentioned, it's got a really nice glitter density so it applies well without having to "place" the glitter. This one isn't on my comparison post yet, but hopefully it will be added soon. You can check out Sonnnetarium on Etsy, where you'll be able to sign up for shop notices and get info on restocks.
I hope you like this Friday manicure! I know it's definitely making me hungry for some ICE CREAM!
