NOTD: Glitter Underlayer
I was experimenting with layering glitter once and I figured that I wanted to actually wear something that was as understated as it was sparkly. I wasn't entirely sure what it would look like, or how I'd end up doing it, but I followed my instincts and put a coat of Nfu-Oh 119 over two coats of Color Club Sex Symbol.
This is what it looks like.
I like that this look is more cohesive than both jelly glitter and simply glitter itself: I also like that it looks as though the smooth jelly overlay looks like it's faceted, and glints in different ways in the sun. I REALLY liked this mani, and it should be easy to replicate: something sparkly at the bottom, a true jelly covering it. I'll probably be experimenting with other glitters and jellies to see what kinds of looks I can come up with.
