Dylan's Candy Bar is an Upper East Side landmark right across the street from Bloomingdale's and around the corner from Serendipity. You could say it's one "sweet" neighborhood! Dylan's carries all kinds of candy (it's one of the few places I can buy those yummy sour Warheads) and one of the neatest features is the candy stairs.
I was inspired to do this mani by Cilucia some time ago when she posted a pic of Gems under Essie Marshmallow. And recently, I saw this great cupcake mani by Liz at Liquid Jelly which is a similar effect! The "glitter under" mani reminded me of the candy stairs in Dylan's :)
Base color: Color Club Factory Girl, Glitter: Milani Gems, Top polish: OPI Step Right Up!
Layering glitter under a sheer polish is a new way to wear your glitter polishes. The base color still shows through, opening the door for many possible combinations. It's a VERY easy way to create a unique manicure. Post a link to your picture in the comments if you give this a try - I would love to see your creations!
