Fall-Inspired Syrup Mani/ Jelly Sandwich [Nail Art]

I was itching to try another "syrup" manicure, which is basically creating a vertical, monotone gradient using just one jelly finish polish.  Easy, in theory, and my kind of nail art!

I should probably also mention that, during a fit of late night mania, I filed my nails way down into really short ovals! I think the shape came out pretty well, but it's definitely obscured by the globs of suspension base from Milani- Gold.  (Hopefully, they'll look a little better with a normal manicure. )

I used Zoya- Katherine as my layering jelly, and the glitter is Milani Jewel FX- Gold.

Next time, I might layer in the glitter sooner, and do one less layer overall...dabbing on glitter is definitely not my strong suit, as you can tell.

I had fun with these nails, though!


  1. Just beautiful! I love those Zoya jellies immensely and one of these days I'll get around to picking up Katherine. It looks perfect with the spare gold glitters ♥

    1. It's really nice! I am happy that I sprung for all three of them. I have yet to try Paloma, but I'm excited!

  2. This is so pretty and subtle. It reminds me of Whimsical Ideas by Pam - Peanut Butter & Jelly. :)
