Teal China Glaze Jelly Sandwich

Hey guys! Today I have a really simple post. I wasn't feeling too artsy today so I just went with a jelly sandwich.

I started off with two coats of China Glaze Keepin' It Teal, a teal jelly leaning green from the Summer 2013 Sunsational Jellies collection. Keepin' It Teal was kind of thick and balded a little for me, so I added a couple drops of thinner and it straightened right out. Then I added one coat of Spoiled by Wet n Wild Pet My Peacock, which is a glitter topper in a clear base with silver, gold, green, blue and navy hex glitters. The glitter payout was pretty good, although I did have to dab on some more glitter here and there. Finally, I added one last coat of Keepin' It Teal to create the jelly sandwich effect. I finished with one coat of Out The Door top coat.

This look is not something I usually go for, but it's really different and I must say I am enjoying it. I hope you guys like it, too!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Why is it called a jelly sandwich? I have never heard that term before. Just started following your instagram I'm excited to learn and try from your blog!

    1. Thank you! A jelly sandwich is basically when you take a sheer polish, commonly called a "jelly" formula, and you layer glitter in between it. When you put a layer of the sheer polish over the glitter, it makes the glitter look less shiny, but you can see the colors of the glitter better. It's kind of hard to explain. It will make more sense if you try it out yourself!

  2. I love Keepin' It Teal and this jelly sandwich looks awesome!!
