Layering: Celebration Sandwich

It's been entirely too long since I've worn a glitter sandwich. This one is full of milky, glittery, patriotic goodness, quite by accident, I must admit.







Polishes Used:

1 Coat Sally Hansen White Veil
3 Coats L.A. Girl Celebrate
2 Coats OPI Bubble Bath
1 Coat Seche Vite

With Gray Suede on my nails last night, I decided I need some glitter on my nails. It was either that, or nail art, and the glitter won. (It usually does.)

White Veil is a really pretty glitter polish from Sally Hansen that I forgot I owned and have never tried. It's a white and gold hex glitter mix that I thought would look stunning over a neutral polish. I painted on 1 coat and didn't really like it.

So, I used L.A. Girl Celebrate instead.

3 coats using the dab-and-go method gave me a generous coating of glitter on my nails. Mostly red, blue, and silver glitter with an occasional fuschia. 2 layers of Bubble Bath were needed to completely tone down the glitter and finish off the sandwich. 1 thick coat of Seche Vite sealed it all off, and I was ready for bed.

I like this layering, but I don't love it. I'm not sure if it's the 4th of July vibe my nails are giving me or what. Maybe the fact that Bubble Bath turned everything pink? I don't love it, I don't hate it, but I definitely don't feel like wearing it for another day.

How would you layer Gray Suede?!?
