Jelly Sandwich ft my newly nubbinized nails!

Hey gals! Second post today, I know, but something happened that I HAD to share with you guys... Well, if you knew me personally, you'd know that I'm a very...VERY spontaneous person. So today while watching TV with my sister, I decided that I was sick of long nails. So I quietly went to my room, brought out my clipper and file...and off they went! My sister was SO upset with me but I like them! Change is good :D besides, they'll grow back at a pretty quick pace if I let them so no worries. I'm embracing the nubs! :)

Anyways, to show off my new nubs I wanted to do something really girly. I didn't really know where I was going  with it so I just picked a light polish. I then remembered the jelly/glitter sandwich trend that everyone's doing and I decided to do it. I already had two coats of Essie Guchi Muchi Puchi on, so I put on a coat of Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday, and topped it with a coat of Essie Pop Art Pink. The effect is more subtle than having just the glitter over the light polish...the milky squishy-ness of PAP calms the glitter down a bit. You can still see it, but it isn't as harsh as it would be if it didn't have PAP over it. I love it, it looks girly and delicate and pretty :) like sprinkles over pink frosting. Enough of my talking, behold my nubs with the cutest combination ever:

Soooo what do you think? Are you liking this combo as much as I am? I can't stop looking at my hands :D I think this is sooo cute :) Also, has anyone else tried the glitter sandwich trend? Any good combinations out there? :D Thanks for reading! :D
