Grape Expectations

These nails, a simple jelly sandwich manicure, look like an ode to antioxidants. There’s something very cran-grape-blueberry about them, no? They also look a bit like Fred Flintstone’s pet dinosaur Dino’s, um, pelt? Hide? Skin? Hmm, well, whatever you call it, my attempts at nail art should probably never make one think about the skinning of a beloved cartoon dinosaur. I think we’ll stick with the blueberry-grape thing instead.

To do these nails, I topped three coats of China Glaze’s Are You Jelly?, an orchid purple jelly, with one light coat of Sephora Formula X’s TNT, a neon blue matte glitter, and then topped the whole thing off with one final coat of Are You Jelly? The overall effect is more opaque than your traditional jelly sandwich manicure, thanks in large part to the lush, electric colours of the polishes, which in combination look nothing like the hide of a hand drawn dino-dog hybrid. No, nothing at all…
