layering experiment

(yep 2 whole posts in the same day--crazy, I know!)

I'm seeing so many polish swatches popping up in the blogosphere that involve a white  base be-speckled with colorful glitter. Since I haven't been able to get my hands on any of these polishes as of yet, I thought I would 'shop my stash' to see if I could create a similar look by layering some polishes I already have. This is what I came up with:








This mani consists of 2 coats of Revlon Powder Puff (a matte, white shade with a pink sheen), 1 coat of LA Girl Glitter Addict in "Celebrate" (red, blue and silver glitters in multiple sizes) and then another thin coat of Powder Puff fo' da sammich effect. I absolutely love the speckled effect the layering created. It totally looks like Funfetti cake or something. I also love how the silver glitter in  Celebrate looks white under the layer of Powder Puff. I will definitely be trying more layering experiments like this! 

Are you a fan of layering/sandwiching polishes?

  1. I like to attempt to do this but it always ends up smudging badly b/c of all the layers I have on. Still trying to find a happy medium. :)

    1. that's why I love me some Seche Vite. If it wasn't for that product, I simply wouldn't be able to paint my nails, period.

    1. thank you! it makes me realize I need to stop buying more polish and just continue to experiment with what I already have! Nothing frustrates me more than discovering I could easily dupe a shade I just got simply by layering 2 other shades I already had!
