This is my first "jelly" polish with flakes. A jelly polish has a slight tint to it (think about jelly you spread on your sandwich or toast) and usually contains glitter or flakes.
I went with a very light aqua tint and added a TON of light blue hexagonal flakes. The thing with jellies - you have to know how to use them. One does not simply polish a nail with a jelly. It's all about getting even coverage of the decoration (flakes). I usually spread a thin coat of the polish on to get the tint right, and then I "dip and grab" the flakes and place them. This only took three coats to accomplish my goal and it was very easy because added a TON of flakes.
In the photo I played around with layering (jelly over another color). The thumb is kelly green, pointer is plain Mermaid Scales, middle is dark purple, ring is light blue, and pinky is turquoise.
I think my favorite would be the light blue! By the way, the picture does NOT do this color justice. In real life, the flakes are uber shimmery.
I'm looking forward to perfecting this art and making a ton more in the future!
