NYC Ballet Jelly Sandwich

Today I kept it simple and did a quick and easy jelly manicure using colors from the OPI NYC Ballet Soft Shades 2012 collection. Wendy did a swatch post a while back featuring the mini set of these colors, but until now I'd only used the glitter from the collection.

I recently picked up OPI My Pointe Exactly, a soft, sheer gray color that looks amazing in the bottle. It took five coats of polish, but I finally got the opacity that I was looking for. On top of the gray, I layered a coat of OPI Pirouette My Whistle, a clear polish with small glitter as well as some pieces of larger, circular glitter (the kind that's a pain to remove). Every time I use this glitter, I'm disappointed because I can never get enough of the larger pieces out of the bottle. I managed to get a fair amount on my index finger, but the rest of my nails only had around three or four pieces.

On top of the glitter, I layered another coat of My Pointe Exactly and voila! A soft shade jelly sandwich.
