Shortbread Bites Inspired Jelly Sandwich


Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays everyone! I haven't done a jelly sandwich type layering in ages! This was inspired by this picture from a recipe for shortbread bites.

I started with one coat of Revlon Sheer Sugar and then added one coat of this unlabeled Cosmetic Arts Christmas looking glitter. (I did my index before deciding to take step by step pictures lol)





Then I added one coat of Sheer Sugar on top for the jelly sandwich effect. 



I felt like one coat was too sheer though so I added another coat on top. I felt I had enough glitter though! 



I think Sheer Sugar ended up being closer to white than I was expecting... I was hoping it would be closer to the light beige of the shortbread bites. It also made the green glitter a bit blue tinted... Not as blue as my camera made it though!

What do you think of this layering? Do you prefer it with one jelly coat on top or two?
