Flip Flop February-Day 15

Welcome to the second half of Jilltastic Nail Design's Flip/Flop February 28 Day Challenge!
Top of the second column!
Today's options are Stamping and Jelly Sandwich.
I chose to do Jelly Sandwich because I do quite a bit of stamping (there is some coming up in a few days!) but I also love to explore the combinations you can get with Jelly Sandwiches.
In case you don't know, a Jelly Sandwich manicure is when you put down a semi-opaque nail polish (known as a Jelly) base, then a coat or more of a glitter, and then top that off with more Jelly.
This gives it a nice squishy look!
I know that mine doesn't exactly match that description, because I put a solid color down first-my preferred method-and then followed the Jelly Sandwich "recipe".
Not as squishy, but I like it fine!
This is a base of China Glaze Starboard, a nice medium green with just a hint of grey, then the glitter is OPI Pirouette My Whistle, one of the most versatile glitters I have seen with medium and very fine silver glitters, and then I topped it off with the Jelly, Zoya's Frida, another green.
Frida is part of an all jelly trio that Zoya put out last summer. I picked up Frida and Katherine right away, and finally got Paloma with their New Year's promotion.
Zoya has LOADS of promotions, they are very generous!

I really like this manicure-very squishy and it also moved two polishes from my untried column to my tried column in my spreadsheet!
