Lunchtime Glitter Sandwich - YUM!

Happy Pink Wednesday, lovelies!  Very exciting news!  This little bloggy of mine reached 250 followers overnight!  So, first I just want to send a big ol' THANK YOU to all of you for following me!  It really brightens my day when I get comments about my manicures!

Ever since seeing this post by Gotham Polish I have been lusting after Milani Jewel FX Gems polish, and of course I couldn't find them anywhere!  UGH!  Don't you hate when that happens?  Luckily, with a little googling I found an online store offering them up at a pretty reasonable price, so I snatched up all three colors!  Now that I had my gems, I had to figure out the best sandwich combo, enter my testing nail wheel:
First step, I painted two "nails" in Zoya Portia and two in a new shade I just got from Sally Hansen called First Kiss.  Then nail one and three got Milani Jewel FX Gems, nail two got a pretty pink sparkle from NYC called Dreamy Glitter (which looked gorgeous, but way too light for a sandwich), the last nail got Milani Jewel FX Gold.  Let's see how they all look with my sheerest pink, Sally Hansen Petal Pusher on top:
The winner ended up being #1.  #2 was just too light, #3 was too bright, #4 was awesome, but I wish there were more small gold glitters, and I don't have anything like that.  So, here's the winning manicure:

SO STINKIN CUTE!!!!!  Like sprinkles on a cupcake!  :)  Have you experimented with Milani Jewel FX yet?  I've noticed on other bloggers that glitter sandwiches turns into a bit of an obsession, and I'm ready to play along!  It is such a cool effect!  Do you use test nail wheels to try out a manicure before you try it?  I think it is a great tool for trying out ideas before having to commit a design to ten nails!


  1. Glitter sandwiches are so pretty :) I don't use nail wheels to test them... but I should. I always seem to mess them up somehow!

  2. love!

    just a little heads up - they're called Jewel FX not Gems polishes :P

  3. I like glitter sandwiches!! I just can't do them because I hate removal!

  4. Hi Jen! I love how this came out. Thanks for the shout out :) I'm happy you found Gems! Sometimes I test out combos, but I don't post pictures... I really like that you did. It's fun to see your ideas.

  5. wow this was so much better than my idea haha i just mixed the glitter nail polish in the polish. WOW how did you get so much followers overnight? I just started and i only got 15 =/
