I’m pretty open about my love for Broadway Nails – Space Flight.
I mean, what’s not to love? It’s a beautiful blue jelly polish that only costs $1! Well, actually, there are two things that I don’t love about this polish…
1. It stinks crazy bad. Like oil-based paint bad. Like “It’s below freezing, but I need to open a window for ventilation” bad.
2. It’s really dark. I mean, it’s definitely a jelly polish, but it’s so dark that it covers up whatever is in the middle of my jelly sandwich just a little too much. And if I felt the need to apply a second coat over my glitter in the name of smoothness or evenness, it just covered my glitter more than I wanted it to.
Then, late one night, in a moment of inspiration I though, “Why don’t I just add some of Space Flight to a clear polish to make a more sheer jelly?” So that’s what I did. Behold:
I added maybe 20 drops of Space Flight into a 3/4 full bottle of clear Wet n Wild polish. Seriously, it did not take much Space Flight at all to make the clear polish a lovely shade of blue. Here is one coat of each of these painted over an expired mailer from Bath & Body Works:
Isn’t that great? Now that I had my new lovely sheer blue jelly polish, I needed to do something with it.
I acquired Funky Fingers – Olaf on a recent trip to 5 Below.
This is a clear base with small white hex glitter, tiny white and iridescent glitter, and large white snowflake shaped glitter. I figured that this would be perfect to use in a jelly sandwich with my Frankenjelly!
I actually started by applying 2 coats of Space Flight to get a nice deep base. Then I applies one coat of Olaf followed by one coat of my new blue Frankenjelly. Here’s the result:
I love how this turned out! The Frankenjelly was dark enough to give the glitter a wonderful blue color and give the effect that the glitter is suspended in the middle of the polish with out covering it up too much! I wore this for almost 5 days, so that’s saying something!
With the success of this frankenjelly, I may be experimenting with more jellies like this in the future. Stay tuned! Thanks for reading! Oh, and just a reminder, I’m on intagram so find me there!!!
