This week I originally wanted to just do a boring manicure. After buffing my nails, touching up the shape, pushing my cuticles, then oiling my nail beds I added 3 coats of the base polish (Misa Polka dot bikini) and headed out. The thing I hate most about doing my nails is the drying time! Sometimes although the nails are dry and can be touched, if you hit them on something or push hardly on the nail, the polish isn`t hardened enough so it still can get scratches and dents. After going to the movies I managed to add multiples dents and scratches to it. I blame my impatience for not letting each coat fully dry. Not wanting to redo the nails, I decided to attempt the jelly nail trend. I added some glitter polish, then sealed the glitter with the same colour I used for the base. The nails are smooth to the touch, and the glitter looks like it is floating inside the "jelly" lol. This only works with polishes that are somewhat sheer.
What I used:
- Sally Hansen Extended Wear Base
- Misa in Polka Dot Bikini
- Sephora by OPI in Mauve-ie star in the making
- L`oreal Topcoat
What do you guys think? This is a great way to fix up a messed up polish or touch up a mani after a few days. When in doubt, use glitter! If your base coat is dark, you can still use the glitter, but you won`t be able to paint over it for the jelly effect :( Super easy and fast!
