Nearly down to the wire again, but with a day or two left in August, it's time to post some Wayback Nails!
This time last year I was just back from the US with a ridiculous polish haul that included some real beauties from Tara and Brandi, two ladies whose fabulousness knows no bounds. Three of those polishes combined to make a glitter sandwich that I absolutely loved, and that's what I decided to revisit. This time, though, I switched it up just a little. I still used the spectacular NOPI Rainbow in the S-Kylie, but the jelly in this month's jelly sandwich is Jaded.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Jaded was part of my marginally saner Stateside haul this year, and I am so crazy about this minty jade colour! I'd totally forgotten, though--despite reading about it on Amandalandish--that it was a jelly. For daily wear, it's a bit too watery a jelly for me, and drying time was not awesome (I used three generous coats for the base), but for sandwiches, I'm gonna love it.
Last year's NOPI Rainbow in the S-Kylie sandwich had two coats of glitter, but that was over a neutral base. This time I went with just one to let more of the beautiful, milky jade colour show through as well. Of course, a final coat of the jelly on top of the glitter, and then I topped with one coat of SV. Loved the end result, and it got a nice compliment from Husband over dinner too!
Day two added another gift from Tara, butter LONDON Matte Finish Shine Free Topcoat, which made me realize that I actually did a very similar manicure not long ago. Part of me wondered if I should start over with something else from last August, but honestly, rainbow glitter, matte finish, and a minty base? I'm frankly surprised it doesn't happen every other week around here.
I'm such a sucker for this combo!
