NOTD: Fireworks & Jolly Lolly Jelly Sandwich

To celebrate the 4th of July, nothing could have been more appropriate than a jelly sandwich featuring L'Oreal's red jelly polish Jolly Lolly, and the new silver, red, and blue multi glitter polish from Julep called America. 
First of all, I'm so impressed with the two jelly polishes I've tried from the L'Oreal Miss Candy collection.  They are more richly pigmented than most of the jellies I've tried, but are still translucent to give that squishy look jellies are known for.  Consequently, I can use less layers to achieve a jelly sandwich.

Here, I've used two layers of Jolly Lolly with America sandwiched in between.  Jolly Lolly actually amps up the blue glitter in America, giving it a violet blue tone that is gorgeous.  The red and silver glitter give it a glowing quality when the light catches it, and overall I'm loving this!  I think America would also look great with the blue jelly Miss Pixie from the same L'Oreal collection.  I need to pick one up before they are gone.

I hope that those celebrating in the US have a happy and safe 4th of July!

  1. Oh ya the jelly looks really good! I am kind of disappointed with the rock candy collection from Julep, they are all pretty colorless, it's like I bought 4 top coats :/

    1. The Rock Candy polishes are way too sheer, IMO! The L'Oreal jellies are the best ones I've tried thus far, just so nice :-)

  2. Holy smokes! The jelly REALLY makes those sparkles pop! I can't believe the shine in that first picture! I agree that I'd love to see the sparkles with a blue jelly as it would probably be just as gorgeous. Thanks for linking up and using the new button! :)
