A Glitter Jelly for a Special Celebration

Happy Birthday Ericka!!!!

So today is Ericka's 25th birthday (geeze, you are getting old...just kidding!)  And I wanted to share this special day with everyone.

This weekend we started the celebration with a 'Surprise' birthday party for Ericka.  She wasn't super surprised, but I think she still had a good time.  Of course, I had to make sure that my nails looked lovely for the party so I decided to use some of my new polishes.

A couple of weeks ago, I had bought gift certificates for Bloom.com and finally put an order in last monday.  I got 5 new polishes from them.  The company offers a variety of different brands for fairly good prices.  They ended up being a pretty good deal because I got the gift certificates at a discounted rate and I got free shipping and handling (which was fast, because I got them on Friday).  I still have one more gift certificate to use, but I think I'm going to hold off for a little while :)

The polish that I choice from the new ones was Megan Miller Collection Framboise.  This is a lovely pinkish red (I don't know how to describe it...sorry).  I was so excited to see that this was a lovely jelly polish and I knew that I had to make a jelly sandwich with it.  I decided to add a coat of OPI Rainbow Connection.  I topped it off with a coat of SV.  I really love the way that it ended up turning out, all sparkly and pretty.


I hope everyone else had a lovely weekend.  We will be out celebrating Erick's birthday at The Cheesecake Factory (I'm so excited), so I can't promise that we will be posting on Tuesday.

This looks so lovely! I keep hearing about Jelly sandwiches when I check out my favorite nail blogs, my blog is strictly face makeup so this is new to me. What is it?

@Beauty: A jelly sandwich is when you layer glitter, stamped image, etc. between 2 layers of a jelly nail polish. A jelly nail polish is the type of polish that is sheer and has a squishy feel. Sorry for the poor description. But I hope this helps a little :)

@ScarsLikeLace: Thanks! I really love them too! Do you have any particular favorites?
