Shimmer Tammy and e.l.f. Lilac Glitter Jelly Sandwich

Playing with all the pretty e.l.f. jellies from the Summer Ready collection, I couldn't fight the urge to create a glitter jelly sandwich. It really is such a wonderful way to play up their strength. I chose to pair Lilac with the gorgeous Shimmer Tammy* which is a purple, gold, holo, hex, bar glitter bomb just waiting to explode...

I sandwiched one coat of Shimmer Tammy* between two base coats and a single top coat of e.l.f. Lilac. Most prominent of the glitters under the jelly top are the hex black and gold glitters peeking through. There is a wonderful depth to layering such combos that I'm crazy about...

I've previously swatched Tammy* over a dark base and loved it, so I really wanted to see how it looks over a lighter color and it did not disappoint. It plays so well with both end of the spectrum. The black hex is much more prominent over a lighter color. To be honest I didn't even notice it when I swatched it before and had to do a double take...

A closeup of the gorgeous glitters. The one thing that my camera couldn't capture is the holo. There is a lot of small, hex and bar holo glitter in the mix here. Sadly on the swatches they just appear silver...

A quick reminder of what Tammy* looks like over a dark base. The lighter color come out to play more and the black just disappears. I love that this glitter works so well with both a light and a dark base. There is something to make it special over any polish...

Thanks for looking!

  8. @Marta, Thank you so much! I also had a hard time using glitter before the glue trick. And sandwiching them with a jelly polish is my favorite! Makes them work appropriate and not to mention interesting in an instant :)
