Layering: Dimensional Water

My nails were long overdue for some jelly glitter sandwich love... a slightly gritty jelly glitter sandwich, definitely, but glittery and gorgeous nonetheless...

Layering with Sally Hansen Water Melon & L'Oreal Too Dimensional

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
2 Coats L'Oreal Too Dimensional?
5 Coats Sally Hansen Water Melon
1 Coat Seche Vite

One of my favorite aspects of jelly polish is its ability to transform polish into a whole new color. When you pair a jelly like Water Melon by Sally Hansen, with a complex, textured, glitter polish like Too Dimensional? The results are stunning! (As I kinda thought they would be.)

Water Melon is a sheer pink jelly that transforms the indigo base of Too Dimensional into a warm red-leading shade of eggplant. The glitter changes color too... blue turns purple, silver turns pink, and that superfine green-gold shimmer turns into a orangey-copper shimmer. Really pretty!!!

Application wasn't too bad... You would think that 6 coats of polish would've made this layering smooth, but not so! It's actually still got a bit of texture to it. Overall, I really like how this turned out. Water Melon adds a lot of depth to this layering, and changes it into a super girly, glittery, Malibu Stacy kind of manicure. And. I. Lurve. It!!!

What do you think of Dimensional Water?
