NOTD: Hot Purple Jelly Sandwich

Happy Thursday Peeps!

I’m super excited because my weekend started today, so yay for being off of work until next week! I got a ton of lovely nail mail the past couple of days, so I’m gonna try to have a swatch-fest while I’m offย so I can show you guys all the goods ๐Ÿ™‚

A quick update on the giveaway: I’m validating entries as you read this, so I’m hoping to have the winners notified and announced within the next couple of days. Thanks for your patience ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, today I have a lovely little jelly sandwich that I did using New York Summer Hot Purple and NOPI Rainbow In The S-Kylie.ย I lovelovelove Hot Purple. If you don’t own it, you need to get it because it is the most perfectly awesome jelly ever!

In the pics below I used 1 coat of Rainbow In The S-Kylie sandwiched between 4 coats (2 on top, 2 on the bottom) of Hot Purple. You can definitely see some major VNL, but it’s a jelly, so that’s expected. However, in real life, the purple shows up darker and looks more opaque, so the VNL is far less noticeable. Peep it:

And just for fun, I wanted to show you guys my new tattoo ๐Ÿ™‚ A friend on twitter (who has a cute knitting blog you can view here) tweeted a pic of a tattoo she’d gotten on her finger and I fell in love, so I had to go get one of my own.

I took Latin for like 4 years in high school and college, and I’m left-handed, so I thought it would be cool to get the Latin word for “left” tattooed on my finger. It just so happens that “left” in Latin isย “sinister” ๐Ÿ˜‰

.

That’s it for today my loves! What do you think of my little jelly sandwich?

I’m pretty sure I need like a million bottles of Hot Purple because it’s so perfect. I don’t know if they sell it in stores, but I got my bottle from Trans Design for like $1.75 or something.

Let me know your thoughts on this mani, and have a terrific Thursday!
