Polish Days: Jelly Sandwich!

Hey all!

I mentioned in my previous post that today was always the Polish Days Jelly sandwich event! This is my first time taking part in this so I'm fairly excited I have to say! Hannah aka Polly Polish coerced me into it by saying there were no Irish bloggers taking part :P Sure how could I say no?

Basically they set a theme for everyone to do! You can sign up here http://www.pollypolish.com/polish-days/

I have two coats of Essence Cotton Candy which is my favourite polish to use for a Jelly sandwich. Then I added on a coat of Essence Hello Holo which is just gorgeous and so sparkly. Then I added on a coat of Essence Circus Confetti. When that was dry I put on a final layer of Cotton Candy and topped it all off with a matte topcoat.

You can't really see the holographic effect of hello holo in the finshed mani but this picture shows it off really nicely. This is before I added on the final layer of cotton candy so you can see all of the glitter from hello holo and circus confetti.
I actually forgot how to do these so I had to go to Alexis' blog to follow the tutorial I made for a guest post for her haha. I love the way this looks on its own. So fun and glittery but I'd probably keep it for an accent nail. I wouldn't be able to pull off a full mani of this :)

 Here's a close up of the finished jelly sandwich. You can see hello holo just as silver glitter. I love this effect but next time I'll just use a normal silver glitter :) I don't want to waste hello holo because it is running out fairly rapid.

I really like this polish days challenge idea. You get loads of time to do the mani so there's no fear of not having enough time to do it (although I just finished my one on Saturday but sshhh)
