Ulta What a Maroon and OPI Rainbow Connection Sandwich

Today I have for you my 1st ever glitter jelly sandwich. I have seen quite a few of them, but have never tried one myself. As I was applying a third coat of Ulta's What a Maroon and thinking how sheer it was, it dawned on me that I should try the sandwich technique. For the glitter I used one coat of OPI Rainbow Connection which I got in Carolina's giveaway. It is by far the most glittery polish that I own. I'm quite pleased with the result, although next time I'll try to be "neater" with the glitter :)

Here is one coat of OPI's Rainbow Connection over three coats of Ulta's What a Maroon (before I added the final coat of What a Maroon).

What a Maroon on it's own, aside from having a creative name, is a deep red jelly. The formula is easy to work with and applied well. The polish is as I mentioned already very sheer. This is three coat plus a top coat and the nail line is still visible.
