Jelly Sandwiches with OPI and Maybelline!

Jelly Sandwiches! Otherwise known as the process of layering sheer/jelly polishes with glitter to create a whole new look. :) These were my first times giving this technique a try, so take a look and let me know what you think of my combos!


The first sandwich I made started with two layers of (my least favourite polish in the world) OPI Significant Other Color. Once that was dry I put on a layer of OPI Polka.com and then once dry sandwiched it with another layer of SOC. Since this isn't a jelly polish I guess this one is more of a crelly sandwich, or a frosted sandwich (a sandwich with icing? hmmmmm!).


I like how the top layer of the sandwich softened the colours in Polka.com, and the whole thing kind of reminds me of unicorns and birthday cake. Haha. Is that a weird thing to say?? :)

The second look I tried was a more traditional jelly sandwich, using (another colour I don't really like) OPI Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em and Maybelline Clearly Spotted. This design used a single coat for the base, followed by the glitter, followed by another layer of the base.


This one reminds me of something like watermelon and strawberries... It looks so juicy, with that jelly polish! So shiny! (I can't remember if I used a topcoat with this one or not... I'm going to guess and say I did.) I like how Too Hot Pink to Hold 'Em makes the white glitters in Clearly Spotted look light pink instead, it makes for a much more subtle look than the black and white.

So, what do you think of my frosted sandwich (hah!) and my jelly sandwich? I'm pretty happy with how they turned out! Considering both of these bases are colours I dislike, I'm thinking that sandwiches might be the trick to making the pesky sheer polishes I dislike more tolerable. Good to know!

  1. Cute, I like 'em :)
    This makes me think of the, um, a technique I see as sort of a "step up" from this -- "pond manicures", have you seen them before? I really like the idea behind it, but they seem like SO MUCH WORK, lol.

  3. These both look gorgeous! I love the combination of the frosty pink and the blue glitters :) It seems like a good way to use polishes you don't like!
