Jelly Shoes jelly sammich!

I have a quick post for you guys today: a sort of jelly sandwich.  By definition, yes, this is a jelly sandwich, however, it doesn't really look like one on the nail.  I have other jelly sandwich ideas, but I really wanted to try out the combination of Girly Bits Jelly Shoes and Hare the Sky was Pink first.

So, for my first blog jelly sandwich I am wearing 1 coat Girly Bits Jelly Shoes + 1 coat Hare The Sky was Pink + 2 more coats of Jelly Shoes.

Sorry, you guys get my janky right hand since I had a major nail catastrophe on my left pinky.

Jelly Shoes is a bright neon pink jelly with glass flecks and flashes of blue shimmer.  It applied beautifully.  As a jelly finish polish, it definitely needed several coats for full coverage. It worked perfectly with Hare the Sky was Pink as it's just a bit brighter than the base color of the Hare, so it brightened the mani up quite a bit.  I was in a super rush to get my nails done last night, so I got polish all over my cuticles.  Luckily, Jelly Shoes didn't stain or hang onto my cuticles once I cleaned up with acetone.  But seriously, guys, look at that gorgeous blue shimmer!

It makes this mani glow!

The Sky was Pink is a pink based polish with blue/purple/blurple fine hex and square glitters.  The glitters scatter out well giving a granite illusion.  All day today, I kept looking at this polish, and I am seriously in love!  It applied well, which means it wasn't too thick like some glitter bombs.  It spread easily without much manipulation on my part.  The only problem I had with this particular polish is when the glitters got on my skin, they were almost IMPOSSIBLE to get off.

A close-up to see a better view of the jelly sandwich.

Verdict: I think I'll keep them both!  It's hard to hate anything paired with Jelly Shoes.  Just sayin'.

What's your favorite jelly sandwich combination?
