Built in Sparkles for a Faux Jelly Sandwich Manicure

I love the look of jelly sandwich manicures.  Basically, sparkles encased in between two layers of a sheer jelly polish.  However, I don't always have time to sit there and apply like 4 different coats of polish and wait in between for them to dry a bit so that I don't smudge colours together. This is why I like Revlon Popular.
It is a sheer pink cream with small silver glitter and larger hex silver glitter built right in.  The sparkles remind me of OPI's Pirouette My Whistle.  In the picture about I did two coats on my nails and then a top coat.  (Please excuse my dry cuticles)!  While it still doesn't have quite as much depth as a true jelly sandwich manicure, I was able to do this whole thing in about 15 minutes including base coat, top coat and drying time.  One coat was a bit sheerer but still look great as well (no streaks!).

If pink isn't for you, Revlon Whimsical gives the same effect.  It is a sheer blue cream with multicolour pink and blue sparkles from the same collection.
