Essie Room with a View - ABC Challenge "R" & "S"

I am using 2 of my letters for the Alphabet Challenge today.  
"R" for Essie Room with a View and "S" for Zoya Sweet.  

Essie Claire's and Zoya Nail Polish

Claire's Zoya and Essie Nail Polish

My plan was to use Room with a View to make a jelly sandwich, however, it didn't really work out the way I planned.  Room with a View is a very sheer nail polish (I actually didn't like it for the longest time) but it's not quite a "jelly finish".  It actually gave the glitters more of a soft focus look.  I really do like it with Claire's Candy Shop - it makes it more of a subtle manicure instead of an in-your-face glitter nail.  Zoya Sweet makes a great base for Candy Shop!

Below is a pic from my previous Candy Shop post so you can see the difference that Room with a View makes when it's on top.



I did purchase OPI "Don't Touch My Tutu" in order to make my first Jelly Sandwich, so I'm excited to try that - hopefully I can figure it out:)

Have a great day!

    1. Me neither. I was actually pretty annoyed when I would get a sheer polish...but now maybe I can make them work:)

  8. I'm still learning the art of the jelly sandwich myself- and I agree that Candy Shop actually looks much better muted like this.
