Jelly Sammich

Quick post today....going shopping with the mother in law, eeek.  If I don't respond to tweets or instagram comments, please call authorities, she may have offed me.  Hehe, ok she's not THAT bad, wait yes she is.  Anywhoo, I will try to post again later since this is going to be short and sweet.

So today we have a little jelly sammy. For those of you who don't know a jelly sandy is a jelly base, a glitter center and jelly to top it all off.  I, for one, am not a fan of the jelly sandy. (how many words can I possibly use before using the actual term sandwich?).  But this one I actually like! There's a first time for everything I guess.  Ok, the nails the nails, I'm getting there.....

I used Elle In a Fog for my base.  It is a light gray jelly that indeed does remind me of fog.  The glitter is Essie Stroke of Brilliance.  Let me tell you, the name fits the polish.  The color on this is so unique.  It's not a navy, it's not a light blue, it's just gorgeous. It's from their Chrome Collection.  And the topper, of course, is In a Fog. 

Hope you guys enjoyed.  Sorry for the short post.  I will try my best to get on later and do another post, or at least get my water marble tutorial up I have been working on for days.  

One last thing....yesterday I got a message from a friend I haven't seen in a long time....she told me that she when she wakes up and doesn't have a new post email in her box from me she actually get upset.  This was the sweetest and most inspiring thing I have heard since I started blogging. Something like that makes all the negative comments from the naysayers worth it, doesn't it?  I keep thinking about what she said and how, maybe I am making just a little tiny bit of difference in this huge online nail blogging community.  It gave me even more drive to continue on and do the best nails that I possibly can!  So thank you Brittany, here's your post and I will continue to do what I do to try to bring joy into people's lives! 

Happy Polishing friends!!
