Birthday Cake Fun-fetti

Hi everyone!  Yesterday was my youngest son's third birthday -- Yay Evan!  So I thought I'd try a mani inspired by fun-fetti style birthday cake!!


I started with one coat of OPI Don't Touch my Tutu, a fantastic white jelly.


Next, I added one coat of OPI Rainbow Connection, a clear coat loaded with multi-color hex glitter in a variety of sizes.


I applied another coat of Don't Touch my Tutu for a jelly sandwich effect ...


But this just didn't quite give me the depth I was look for.


So I added one more coat of Rainbow Connection, and then two more coats of Don't Touch my Tutu.


I finished with one coat of SV.  I am really happy with the final look of this mani!  The double jelly sandwich really gave it a lot of depth!  Evan had a great birthday weekend, and I hope you all did as well!

Happy Painting!!!

Colors: OPI Don't Touch my Tutu, OPI Rainbow Connection

  3. That is a delicious looking mani! I'm kicking myself for not getting Rainbow Connection. I abstained because I already have two similar multicolor glitters (SephOPI Sparktacular! and Confetti Tasmanian Devil), but they just aren't as bright or chunky as RC. Dang it!

  4. I have had this idea in my head for quite some time! I bought Don't touch my tutu! specifically for jelly sandwiches! Instead of Rainbow Connection, I bought Confetti's Tazmanian Devil. I prefer the glitters in Tazmanian Devil over Rainbow Connection.

    1. I *almost* grabbed Tazmanian Devil for this one! I decided against it because of all of the micro silver glitter. It just wasn't quite what I was going for, but Rainbow Connection was!!!
