I distinctly remember trying to make a wintery jelly sandwich this same time last year. It was right after the holidays, early 2013, and I tried probably 4 different white jelly sandwiches (all of which were complete fails and they never made it to the blog)! But in the last year I’ve accumulated a few (ahem) new polishes… so let’s try it again!
I wanted my jelly sandwich to be white, shimmery, and with some slight multi-colored glitter effect to look like snowflakes. Let’s see what I came up with…
It has many layers (8 layers to be exact), but I love it! I will call this my snowfetti sandwich. It also pairs perfectly with the winter weather advisory that we’re having in upstate NY right now!
Here’s what I’m wearing…
♥ Sally Hansen Maximum Strength (one coat) as my base coat
♥ OPI Alpine Snow (one coat) as my white base color
♥ Funky Fingers Jawbreaker (one coat) for some colored glitter w/a creamy base
♥ Wet n Wild Megalast Break The Ice as a sheer white topper (three coats)
♥ OPI Lights of Emerald City (one coat) for some fun square glitter on top
♥ Seche Vite topcoat (one coat)
I just love Lights of Emerald City by OPI! It’s probably my favorite glitter topper ever! My boyfriend’s mom got it for me for my birthday over the summer and I’ve worn it three times so far on the blog. The square glitters in there are so unique, and the fact they’re white helps soften them so they blend perfectly into your manis. I hope OPI keeps making glitters like this one!
A quick FYI… the January Nail Art Ideas Linkup themes are coming out real soon! So keep your eyes peeled for the announcement! The January N.A.I.L. linkup will start Jan 5th 2014.
Day 27 is all about Jewelry! There are a lot of fun and creative options for this theme! It’s hard to narrow it down. But after sifting through my jewelry-making goodies I found these gorgeous marbled beads. I haven’t made them into a necklace yet… so why not at least ‘wear’ them on my fingernails?!
I wish my teal base color was a little brighter.. but oh well, I work with what I’ve got! Here’s what I’m wearing:
Teal ♥ NYC Tudor City Teal
Beige ♥ Zoya Pandora
Orange ♥ wet n wild Club Havana
Purple ♥ wet n wild On a Trip
I can’t wait to see the other jewelry-inspired designs for today! Lotsa bling, I’m sure!

The theme of Day 29 of the nail art challenge is ‘inspired by a song’. The song I have chosen is a reggae song by Barrington Levy called BLACK ROSES. Here’s the song on youtube. I love this song! It’s part of my reggae playlist and iTunes says that I’ve played it 42 times… but I know it has to be way more than that! I love how he says Oh Ay! at the end of the verses. It totally gets stuck in my head!
I used the Konad M53 stamping plate along with my Konad special polish in black. And my lovely pastel pink polish is my new Wet N Wild Megalast called Sugar Coat. I got it at Walgreens and made out like a bandit. I got 5 polishes all for the low price of $7.22 total! And one of them was an Essie flakie topcoat from the luxeffects collection that was on sale for $2.00! Thank you Walgreens! I am enjoying this mani- sometimes it’s nice to go with a simple stamp design. It’s quick and easy and the color combo came out so delicate and feminine. Oh Ay!
