NOTD: Jordan by Julep and Don't Touch My Tutu!

For this week's manicure, I combined Jordan, a gunmetal silver multi-glitter, with Don't Touch my Tutu, a milky white jelly from OPI's NYC Ballet  collection.  Interestingly, the combo turned out to be a medium bluish gray with a toned down glimmer that does give me a Christmas vibe.  Sometimes concoctions work!
My camera did not want to focus correctly, but I think you can still get the idea.  I used 1 coat of Jordan followed by one of Don't Touch My Tutu, another of Jordan, and another of Tutu.  The grit was pretty substantial, so I used two coats of Julep's fast dry topcoat.  A coat of Gelous probably would have been a good idea.  My only issue was a few ragged pieces of glitter at my tips, but filing them took care of that. 
Disclaimer:  I purchased these.
