Twinsie Tuesday: Indie Brand Mani

Hello, hello, hello! It's Twinsie Tuesday once again, and this week's theme is "indie brand mani".  I didn't have any new indies that I have not tried (let's be honest, those get put on my nails pretty much right away) so I decided to take a few and do and Indie brand glitter jelly sandwich mani instead.

I used Cult Nails "Scandalous" and JENsations "Pinata" for my sandwich. Now, I've seen Cult Nails referred to as an "indie brand" before, which confuses me because when I think "indie", I think of a small, hand made polish business, usually run by one person. Cult Nails has a lab and a huge following, and while still maybe not as big as say, OPI, they are on the bigger side.  However, in this instance, we will go with the indie label so that it fits my theme :D



 I started with 2 layers of Scandalous, a creamsicle coral jelly. This is one of my top 10 favorite polishes of ALL TIME. Not only is the formula stellar and the color to die for, but I won this from my girl Brandi, way back before I was even a Twinsie. It holds a special place in my heart:

I then did one layer of JENsations "Pinata" and topped it off with one more layer of "Scandalous" to create a confetti jelly look:

Isn't this cool????  Cult Nails can be purchased on their website, and JENsations are available in her shop on Etsy.
