Cake Batter Blondies and Confetti Cake Nails

These past two days have been kind of grey, so nothing better to brighten things up than baking some colorful cake batter blondies and wearing a colorful confetti cake manicure :)


The recipe for the manicure:
  • Two coats of Essie Navigate Her
  • One coat of Milani Gems
  • One coat of OPI So Many Clowns... So Little Time
Yes, it takes a bit longer to dry because of all the layers but the final look is so much fun!

As for the cake batter blondies...

 


The recipe for the cake batter blondies can be found on the blog of a fellow New Yorker Girl Meets Life - link! We added chocolate chips :) They are really amazing but don't eat too many and wait until your nails are dry!

Want to see more glitter sandwich manis? Here's one in pink, blue, and as a gradient.

  7. This looks so cute! I actually thought you had a polish with pastel glitter in it, I'd never think to put another polish on top of the glitter! xxx

    1. Oh a pastel "glitter" would be super! You should totally try it out, it's really easy (it just take some time because of all the layers).

    1. Hi Julie, Gems has been good to me (even if I only really use it for these kinds of looks!). Sorry to hear Party of Five didn't work out so well, I would have thought it would be OK :/
