My first Jelly Sandwich (OPI Care to Danse + Shimmer Caroline)

Hey guys sorry for the lack of posts recently. I started my new job and unfortunately I can't wear nail polish :( At the moment I am only working weekdays but soon I'll be doing nights as well as weekends. While they're still free I'm hoping to use the weekends to swatch and create designs for scheduled posts so hopefully you won't miss me too much haha :-)

Today I want to show you my first attempt at creating a jelly sandwich. Using OPI Care to danse which I completely forgot I had I applied two coats as the base. This polish is very sheer with a lilac tint to it. It's very soft and feminine which was a look I wanted to keep so I used glitter which had smaller pieces, Shimmer Caroline. This glitter is jammed packed with a mix of glitter that belong to the purple family. As it is so dense I had to swipe the brush several times before applying a very fine layer over CTD. After that I then applied another two coats of CTD and a coat of Seche Vite.

Apologies for the rather orange looking fingers!

I'm a little in love with this look and can't stop looking at my nails. The glitter really helps to bring out the lilac of CTD, they're a perfect combo if a little safe. It reminds me of lavender. I'll definitely be rummaging in my helmer for more sheer/jelly polishes and finding combos to share with you.

Shimmer Caroline was provided for my honest, unbiased review. If you're interested in buying these polishes or want to check out other glitters available you can visit Cindy's Etsy shop. Each bottle retails for $12 USD.
