Sure thing! Hope this helps. A jelly polish is a very sheer polish that either is not meant to be opaque, or take many coats to be opaque. It can be a very clear color or a murky/milky finish if that makes sense. The polish I used in this case, Essie Marshmallow, is pretty close to opaque in 3 coats so if I wore it on its own, I could get it basically solid in three coats. So you could call that a milky jelly! But most traditional jellies are the other kind, the totally sheer kind that isnt meant to be solid and opaque. Here are some examples!
Claires Candy Shop «this one comes with glitter already in it, but you can see that the glitter is a little obscured by the pink. This is kinda like a jelly sandwich in a bottle!
I honestly dont have too many jelly polishes, I only own two of the ones I listed above, those were just ones I could think of off the top of my head. I’m sure if you google something like “jelly polishes” or “nail polish glitter jelly sandwich” you could get some results, but I gotta go to sleep! I hope this helps! And thank you for the kind words :D
“In too deep, gandalf the bon bon” and not (the real lyrics) “in too deep, cant touch the bottom” ?
Seriously, gandalf the bonbon.
Why in the world havent I tried water marbling with my Orly Happy Go Lucky collection? Those colors go so perfect together. And, considering the absolutely ridiculous amount of polish I have, I don’t have a lot of complete collections. This is one of the few I do have in its entirety. It begs to be marbled. It’s a mystery why I havent given this a go yet. But the whole messy factor always shoos me away from marbling..sigh.
Thanks! I use the Ikea Lennart. It’s cheap, easy to move (very very lightweight), and holds everything perfectly. I keep my polishes in the top two drawers, and at the moment theyre pretty snug in there. Theres room for probably 5-8 more bottles in one of the drawers, the other is entirely full. In the bottom drawer, I keep mini bottles, treatments, tools, nail art supplies, and my nail wheels. If I really needed to make room for more polish, there’s plenty of room in that bottom drawer. Maybe I’ll take a pic of the unit with everything in it one day! But I think for most people, the Ikea Helmer is way too much—-that’s for the extreme nail bloggers who have like 23456789 polishes. If you have around 250 or less polishes, I’d say the Lennart is a really good option. You can take the drawers out easily if you need to move the unit a long way (like down the stairs or put it in the car or something) and it’s an attractive little unit. It matches pretty much any room and sometimes I put a pretty tablecloth over it.
