Today was my aunt's birthday and honestly, what better way to celebrate than with Jello shots? I was spending time with my love, Pinterest, when I came across a recipe for lemon slice jello shots. I was intrigued and it seemed really simple. While the recipe was for lemonade flavored Jello, I decided to make my own flavor combos. The green ones are margarita flavored (lime Jello, triple sec and tequila), the yellow ones are piña colada (pineapple Jello and Malibu rum) and the red ones are raspberry, triple sec and vodka.
While all of these were delicious, the piña colada flavor was a hit! This was so simple to do, I may make this for any future get togethers. It definitely beats using the little plastic shot glasses. I mean, doesn't it look classy? If I had to change something, it would be to use lemons instead of limes. The lemon have a thicker rind, making them sturdier to scoop out.
And by pure coincidence, my nails matched the shots. I found a Brazilian polish that I hadn't used in a REALLY long time, Risqué Creamy Nail Polish in Rebu. Now, I don't know who decided to nail this creamy because it's not. This is a straight up sheer red jelly, very similar to the Zoya Gloss collection (which I NEEEEEEED). The first coat went on a bit patchy, but not awful. I didn't want to use coat after coat so I decided to layer Love My Nails "Crystal", a silver hex and micro glitter. Once that was dry, I followed up with another coat of Rebu and some top coat.
If you want more info on the Jello shots, let me know in the comments.
Have a great day!
