ABC Challenge: D is for OPI Don't Touch My Tutu

Hi lovelies! Sorry for the super late post but it has been an absolutely crazy day. I had class from 8-4 then spent the next few hours studying for the midterms I have Friday. Feels like I can't catch my breath sometimes! Anyway for this week's challenge we are to show you all a polish, polish brand or nail art technique that starts with the letter D.

Yayyy! Its finally jelly sandwich time! I love jelly sandwiches. No other way to explain it. Here is the "recipe" for this jelly sandwich:
1 coat Orly Nail Defense
1 coat OPI Don't Touch My Tutu
1 coat Orly Halo
1 coat OPI Don't Touch My Tutu
1 coat Layla CE 51
2 coats OPI Don't Touch My Tutu
1 coat Sally Hansen Insta Dri Top Coat

*wipes brow* Yep that would be 8 coats of polish on my nails. Totally worth it. I loved that this look was fun but understated at the same time. Not a total glitter bomb but still glittery. 


After wearing this for a day or so, I topped it with Revlon Matte Top Coat to see what it would look like. 


I really loved this mani both shiny and matte! Which do you like more?

  2. I like it both ways, too, but I think I like it shiny better, just because I think it would sparkle more. :)
