NOTD - Glitter Jelly Sandwich with Models Own Indian Ocean & Ibiza Mix!


Namaste my pretty ones!  If you follow moi in Twitter you’ll know that this here blogger attended her first yoga class yesterday.  Oh yesh. Going in with quite vivid scenarios in my head which involved having to be escorted out via a stretcher straight to A&E (again) it actually went really well! Hey, we even got a nap at the end of it…any activity that involves napping as a vital part gets a big huge tick in my book. Not only did I feel fab afterwards, instead of half paralysed as I expected, but I also slept like a baby! Happy days :D

I’ve seen ‘glitter jelly sandwich’ manicures pop up on many a blog & it’s been a mani that I’ve wanted to try for a while now, I just love the look of them, the combination possibilites are endless & I think you know by now my complete adoration of anything glitter! So here's my first glitter sandwich mani!


 In case you’re not sure what a ‘glitter jelly sandwich’ is exactly, it’s basically a glitter polish ‘sandwiched’ in between coats of sheer/jelly polish.  Now for this you of course need a ‘jelly’ polish, but having a close look at my collection, twas absolutely dismayed to notice a distinct lack of ‘jelly’ like polish’s! :O *This is something that clearly needs rectifying asap, but in the meantime a bit of improvisation was called for, so I reached for a sheer polish instead in the form of the beautiful Models Own Indian Ocean from the Beetlejuice collection which I’ve blogged all by its wonderful onesie HERE. The glitter of choice to be sandwiched in between Indian Ocean also happens to be from the Models Own family, the awesome funky, chunky Ibiza Mix from the Hed Kandi collection. Voila! An (almost) Glitter Jelly Sandwich! ;)



To create my glitter sandwich, I started with two coats of the Indian Ocean, and then applied one coat of Ibiza Mix on top before going back with a final coat of Indian Ocean.


Twas actually pretty happy with how it came out in the end! The sheerness of Indian Ocean worked really well & is a fab one for layering; I just adore this fairy like pretty polish. And Ibiza Mix is just a stunning glitter mix that still comes through beautifully. 


Now I need to get me some proper ‘jelly’ polish’s so I can have a play around & do more glitter sandwiches!

Have you tried glitter sandwiches? Any polish/combo recommendations? Thanks for reading!

Lotsa love to ya!
