Candy Mani (part 1)

8:47 PM

Hi there~

What's sweeter and cuter than candies? Yeah, nothing, you're right!
So today is a cute candy day~!

Candi mani with Show It And Glow It! for the glitter part and Guy Meets Gal-Veston for the sorbet effect!
 In fact, I saw a "candy mani" on Polish This last week, a blog where the owner likes layering different nail polishes to achieve different effects! If you don't know this blog, I suggest you go and visit it!
And I've also just seen this kind of mani on Tera's blog, Nails in Nippon. She did an awesome orange combo!

So basically, you need a colored base coat, a glitter nail polish and a jelly or sorbet polish to use on top.


So for the first step, use a colored base coat. I used 2 coats of OPI Tutti Frutti Tonga on my index and middle finger and 2 coats of OPI Let Me Entertain You on my ring finger and pinky. Of course, you can do all your nails with the same color! Here I wanted to experiment with this kind of mani to see what looked best!


Index & middle finger: 2 coats of OPI Tutti Frutti Tonga 
Ring finger & pinky : 2 coats of OPI Let Me Entertain You on my ring finger and pinky.


Second step involves glitters! Yay! ;D Here I layered 2 thin coats of OPI Show It And Glow It! (purple glitter nail polish) over the colored base coats.
Intermediate step!


Finally, add your favourite jelly/sorbet on top! I chose OPI Guy Meets Gal-Veston, a coral sorbet.
And here is the final result!

It's so juicy! I really feel I have candies on my nails! It's really bright and funny! It pops! Sorbets are known to be really shiny on their own and it's what gives this mani a candy-look!


This looks so juicy! Yummy!^v^)/

Blurry picture to catch a glimpse of the glitters. In real life, it's a 100 times sparklier!



What do you think of Candi manicures? Do you like this look?

If you missed the glitters from the Burlesque Collection of OPI (Holiday 2010), don't worry, OPI will be releasing  a glitter collection for this winter! It's the Muppet Collection! It seems there will be great glitters this winter, too!



Oh, BTW, I created a Facebook page for Nailderella. You can like it if you're willing to! ;D I put a link on the left side of  my blog.

  2. Interesting take on the jelly sandwich! I've heard Let Me Entertain You is a close twin to Katy Perry's The One That Got Away so if any readers can't get LMEY, TOTGA is gorgeous itself :).

  8. Thank you girls!

    Toyomi, "Tutti Frutti Tonga" is a really nice polish, you're right! It's one of my 1st OPI! ;D

    Hermione, I don't have TOTGA so I cannot confirm what you said but it does seem to be close to LMEY, indeed! TOTGA seems more purple and LMEY more fushia...But both are beautiful! Thanks for the info! Now I know TOTGA is quite close (same type at least) to LMEY! :D (I didn't know!)

    Deysi, thank you!

    Kayono, if you're please with your candi mani, let us know how it turned out! ;D I wanna see it!

    Carissakuo, thank you! I'm glad you've seen something new you're interested in! ;D
