The polish is a jelly so I decided to make a glitter sandwich with it. I started out with two coats of BHG Beautiful followed by one thick coat of Essie Set in Stones and one more coat of BHG Beautiful. The whole thing was topped off with a top coat for shine. I just love the depth of glitter sandwiches. This one makes me think of a sangria with berries beneath the surface. Yum...
A closer look at the glitter...
A peek at what it looked like before the final coat of BHG Beautiful. Essie Set in Stones is a silver glitter in a clear base. It usually applies much thinner and would need a few coats to build up to this much glitter, but I was feeling lazy so this is one thick, messy coat of the Set in Stones with no top coat. I wanted to make sure I had plenty of glitter for the sandwich...
Taking apart the sandwich even further, BHG Beautiful itself is a deep wine jelly. I'm not sure if this is just a relabel of one of their standard polishes, but I wouldn't be surprised. Application was good and it covered well in two coats. The formula is shiny enough that the swatches here are without a top coat. Looking at the photos I see some bald spots toward the cuticles which were not visible in real life, but since I was layering over it, this didn't really matter...
