Twinsie Tuesday-Follower Requested- Jelly Pond Manicure

Press Sample
Happy Twinsie Tues everyone! Today's prompt asks us to create a manicure that was requested by our followers. I created a poll that went live with last week's Twinsie Tuesday post and I appreciate your responses. The choices were for me to create a watermarble, jelly pond, saran wrap, or a summer color blocking manicure. The winner was (obviously)....the jelly pond manicure!


I have seen this manicure created a few times and it is so cool looking, so I was very excited to try it. I used a tutorial created by Jacki of Adventures in Acetone. This is a rather simple technique that creares a very complex look. For my jelly polish, I used Island Punch by Loaded Lacquer (previously reviewed here). This jelly is absolutely fantastic and the color is amazing! I followed the steps provided in Jacki's tutorial, but I used small dotted "flowers" instead.

I used four coats of the jelly and added the flowers using a white creme between each coat. I added the final layer of white flowers and then a black one, followed by a very think coat of Island Punch, and one layer of topcoat.

What do you think of this look? It's okay to me. My flowers aren't as defined as they should've been to really show that they're actually flowers. Now that I think of it...this actually looks like clouds! LOL! Oh well, I will definitely try this technique again in the future!

  2. This is really cute, I have never tried this type of look with a lot of layers, I did one once with one layer only and it was cute, lol but yours has so much depth. Love it.
