Autumn is my favorite season for many reasons: the weather, scarves, sweaters, my birthday (!!!), and pumpkins. Random ElleSees fact #48392: I collect pumpkins. Weird, right? So it should be no surprise that I'd have something pumpkin on the blog, right? Oh, and there's more pumpkin-goodness where that came from! Try these super-quick Sparkly Pumpkin Nails--they kinda remind me of candy corns. Or should I stop blogging when hungry? Here's how to:
T O O L S:
- orange/coral polish
- chunky gold glitter polish
M E T H O D:
While I'm using an orange/coral color here, feel free to use whatever color you want.
To make it a true jelly manicure (also called pbj manicure), choose a polish that is buildable.
Don't throw out those polishes that require multiple coats
to achieve the color in the bottle--those work perfect for this.
Paint one thin base coat of orange. Let dry.
Paint one coat of glitter. Let dry.
I like the chunky glitter polish better for this, as it shows the orange more.
I also liked gold better than silver for this.
Some of you might like it just like this--that's totally up to you!
Paint top coat of orange polish. Let dry. Seal with clear coat if desired.
The effect should be like the glitter is suspended in gel, hence the Jelly or PBJ name. Enjoy!
What are you up to this weekend? I'm kinda excited about having no plans. Maybe I should curl up in the hammock with a good book? Tell me your plans.
Be safe, behave, and be well. Love, Elle
