Monday Layering: Pink, White, Black, & Gold Glitter Sandwich

How's it going?  I was in the mood for glitter today and thought of this combo when I was falling asleep last night- something that happens more often than you would think!

Here's what I used:

I was thinking, "pink and black glitter on white polish".  I figured I'd use the Fergie polish, "Tonight's Gonna Be A Good Night" and get both the black I wanted plus some gold too (I love that polish!)

I started with 3 (thinned out with nail polish thinner) layers of Essie "Instant Hot".  Thinning it out helped because no matter what, you are going to need more than 2 layers of this to even it out. By making it thinner, you can almost guarantee it will dry faster:


Then I did one layer of Essie "A Cut Above", a rosy glitter:

Next, I topped it with Wnw Fergie "Tonight's Gonna Be A Good Night", the black and gold glitter:

And because I can never pass up the chance to "sandwich" in as much as possible, I added OPI's "Don't Touch My Tutu" over everything. This softens everything up, and actually brought more of the pink out:



I topped everything off with Cult Nails "Wicked Fast" top coat and the drying time was not bad at all considering how many layers I did!

The thing I love about layering is that the possibilities are endless.  I also love the look of "indie" polishes, and this gives me the same "feel" of those beautiful, complex indie glitter mixes without the same cost.

What do you think of this glitter combo?

  5. Love this! I'd be interested to see what a sheer white jelly would do to the glitter if you made it into a sandwich!
