Artsy Wednesday - Jelly Sandwich

Hi guys!! Today's Artsy Wednesday theme is jelly sandwich! For those of you who don't know what exactly a jelly sandwich is, it is where you generally layer quite sheer jelly-like polishes with glitter and it usually ends with another layer of the jelly on top of the glitter to dull the shine, but it gives some amazing depth!

Today's theme fell coincidental with this new polish by Essie I was wearing called Leading Lady (which is part of their new winter 2012 collection). It is a really gorgeous red jelly with red glitter in it. Without being a typical jelly sandwich, it already looks like one, but without all the extra layers.. bonus!

I used 2 coats here, but it could have easily gone with 1 coat. I noticed the red jelly went darker in colour after two coats. I applied 1 coat of Wicked Fast on top.

Seriously gorgeous colour, but is a pain in the bum to remove unless you use the PVA method! Thanks for reading and don't forget to check out these lovely ladies partaking in todays theme!
