Pink Wednesday ~ Jelly Sandwich Mani with OPI Do You Think I'm Tex-y?

Happy hump day! For this Pink Wednesday I knocked out two more untrieds by doing a jelly sandwich mani. I started with OPI Do You Think I'm Tex-y? I only have this color in a mini bottle, but I definitely want to invest in the full size. OPI minis are just so darn awkward to use and so tiny. I could barely hold any polish on the brush. The color is an amazing berry pink. This is two coats.

I absolutely love jelly finishes! For the next part of the sandwich I added one coat of Milani Disco Lights. This is a light pink glitter suspended in a clear base. It was not hard at all to get the glitter dispersed all over the nail.
the sun was starting to go down :(
Now for one more coat of Do You Think I'm Tex-y? to complete the jelly sandwich.

I absolutely love the way this came out. I don't know why I've never tried a jelly sandwich before...it was super easy. The jelly sorbet polishes from OPI dry relatively quickly so I was able to add each layer right after another. I'm looking forward to trying this again.
Have you done a jelly sandwich before??? If so, what was your favorite combo???

I like the sandwich idea a lot! Thanks! I am going to copy you on that one as I get really tired of the glitter on in 2 days max and want it off...so I just end up not using glitters that much - plus so darn hard to take them off! Maybe if I can sandwich them, I will like it better.

Thanks ladies for your comments!
@beachgal...glitter is not my fav finish (I hate removing it too) so I like the depth that the sandwich gives it. I'll report back on removal...I should be taking it off tomorrow probably.
