GOT - Layering Between the Sheets


 Hello, Fireflies!

Today's mani takes you both to the murky depths of the pond mani, and also to the murky depths of my blue polish drawer.

Have you heard of the 'pond' mani?  It's basically a jelly sandwich nail art technique, but instead of glitter between the layers, you do nail art.  And, there are typically more layers, giving the impression of depth.

If you actually have enough polish on to create 3-D images, maybe you have too much polish on.  Maybe.  Just sayin'.

I started with my good ol' dotting tool and Revlon Spirit.  This is the bottom of the pond.

Ah, Revlon Royal.  One of the darlings of the polish world, and one of the best undies for all the Clarins 230/Unicorn Pee dupes.  Also, a kickass jelly, when jellies were new.

In Real Life, the layers are a little harder to see, I admit.  Maybe I should have added a little clear polish to Royal for more translucency.  But it is definitely a fun way to layer, especially a simple image like a dotted flower.  What would you layer between the sheets.. of polish?

  4. I love this technique! But I didn't know the English name, French bloggers usually call this something like a "Jelly thing sandwich", so thanks for teaching me that. I really love how this technique turns out, and your manicure makes no exception. I really need to try it someday, but I need to find a polish that would work nicely. Anyway, great job! <3
