All Wrapped Up

Hello! I'm leaving for one of my graduation ceremonies very shortly so here's a quick post for you. I did a very simple and speedy manicure with some cute bow accents plus rhinestones.


I started with China Glaze Sweet Hook and layered OPI Care to Danse for a jelly look. Then I added a coat of Nubar White Polka Dot. For the bows I freehanded them with Essie Play Date and outlined them with a white striping brush.

Thank you so much for your views and comments! After next week I`ll be done with exams and hopefully back on track. Much love!

  4. I was wondering if you could explain how you do jelly manicures? Do you use actual jelly polishes? I tried it with a solid base, then glitter, then a translucent nude on top and it pretty much covered all the glitter up. Thanks!

  5. I like the subtle glitter with this lavender, but the bows and rhinestones are such a cute touch! You always do such an great job of combining looks and effects to create something unique and adorable. :D

  7. This manicure isn't really a jelly sandwich. I was going to do it but I left it with just the glitter on top.
    The OPI polish I used was a jelly polish though. The recent OPI NYC Ballet collection is all neutral jellies! I think it depends on the kind of glitter you use too. Larger, dark hex glitters probably work best! Small glitter would probably get hidden ):

  9. Oh okay that helps a lot! I've seen a lot of nail bloggers do jelly manicures but never mastered them. I guess I'm gonna go on a nail polish run today to get my fill of jelly polishes :)
