Pink Wednesday: Pretty in the City

It's that time again! Yep. Pink Wednesday! 
 Feast your eyes on this glittery goodness.

Lately I've been obsessed with layering glitters under sheer or jelly polishes a.k.a. "the glitter sandwich mani." Not only does it help smooth out any rough glitters that you may use, but the layering polish gives you this translucence feel. I recommend you try it if you haven't already!

Here's the lineup:

L-R: unnamed City Color, L.A. Girl Disco Ball, unnamed Sally Girl

I started with two coats of Disco Ball. It's not such a stark white, but it does give you full coverage in two coats. This is ideal for me because I don't really like the look of visible nail line. Next I added two coats of the Sally Girl. It's a multi-size pink hex glitter that I bought at Sally Beauty Supply ages ago. Next I added two coats of the City Color. This is where the real magic happened. I picked this up on a whim at Rite Aid and I'm glad I did, because it added so much pizazz to this mani. 

 That shimmer flash is subtle but to die for.
I feel like I say this all the time but I loooove the way this turned out. My boyfriend said it looked like an Easter egg. I'm going to have to revisit this then, maybe with multicolored pastel glitters...hmmm...
So, are you guys rocking your pink today? Have you tried the 'jelly sandwich look?'
Do you like it? Gonna try it out? Dish!
