#049: Hot pink glitter sandwich: STILL practicing

P2 8 in 1 Nail wonder

essence special effects topper disco disco (2 coats)
essence better late than never (diluted, 2 coats)
essence better than gel nails top sealer


So according to previous post, now I tried with OPAQUE glitters. I wanted to have jelly cover on uncolored glitter, so this time I used silver-holographic glitter. I also changed the color from blue to pink…just for my interest.


AND honestly I still feel something wrong. Probably my thought wasn’t right, sparkling effect of holographic silver glitter was totally masked by the jelly and even turned as black/gray spots. If I change the angle, sparkles are still visible but it again turns into matte black/gray spots by another angle. I think it’s because the color of glitter is really different (even though it looks same for all the glitter in the bottle), some are jelly friendly but some are not…and goes to uneven look :(


Anyway this result still looks unique and cute, that’s something made me happy, even this is STILL not my wished result :) Unfortunately I don’t have so much jelly & glitter…well, what shall I do? Now I’m looking for the way to go without getting gigantic amount of glitters/jellies…otherwise it’ll be never ending story :(


ところでbetter late than never、これ透明感のあるホットピンクで、1:10くらいで薄めたらとてもキレイな半透明ピンクポリになりました。これはいい大変気に入った。今我が家には空びんと攪拌球が相当数転がっているのでちょっといろいろやってみようと画策中です。無いなら作ってしまえばいいと思うんだ!
