I Am Liquid Jelly’s Jealous Cousin.

Not really- I’m not her cousin, but I am jealous. Jealous that I didn’t come up with this beautiful layering combination:


Liquid Jelly (Liz) posted these nails, mimicking the infamous Clarins 230 polish,  and I have been admiring them for the longest time, and I finally decided to try them out.




I used Liz’s “recipe” for the guideline of my attempt at her layering combination, but I didn’t have any of the polishes she used, so I made due with what I had. Below is her recipe, along with mine:

Liz’s Recipe:

  • 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Daddy’s Girl (3 recommended)
  • 2 coats of Orly – Space Cadet
  • 1 coat of Maybelline Colorama – Sonic Sunset (flakie)

My Recipe:

  • 2 coats of Nicole by OPI – Show You Care
  • 1 coat of Maybelline Color Show – Purple Icon
  • 2 coats of Hard Candy – Beetle
  • 1 coat of Finger Paints – Flashy

I’m not sure if  Purple Icon was necessary for this look, but it looks gorgeous over Show you care! I plan on posting that combination in a separate post sooner or later.

I got so many compliments on these nails! It’s insane! I think Liz is a genius- she does some pretty awesome swatches, combinations, reviews, and nail art, so if you haven’t already, you need to check out her blog!
