I got a little surprise in the mail the other day from a friend of mine in the form of Nabi Abysis and Stargazer 305 (which I'll show you in another post). Abysis is an amazing glitter polish with blue hex glitters and normal holo glitters. I swatched it over several shades and couldn't find anything that was really grabbing me, so the friend who sent it to me suggested that I try a jelly sandwich. I pulled out my bottle of NYX Ink and got to work. This was the result.
I totally love this combination. This is one coat of Ink, then one coat of Abysis, then another coat of Ink. One coat of my quick dry top coat made this as smooth as glass. So much depth.
My bottle of NYX Ink is from the new NYX line, the ones that come in the bottles that are shaped like Lippmann bottles. I really thought this was the same polish as NYX Girls Inkheart, but some of my friends have told me that their bottles of Inkheart are too pigmented to do a jelly sandwich with, so I guess it must have been reformulated when they changed the bottles and the names. The formula on it is really great though, and I can't wait to wear it on its own as well.
The Nabi was thick - like super, mega thick. I had to dump some of it out to make room for enough thinner to get it more workable. It worked just fine once it was thinned, though. For folks who have issues with strong scents, beware - this stuff stinks. I've gotten to a point where Kleancolors don't really bother me anymore, but this was one stinky polish. And I could still smell it for a few hours even after it had dried. And that was with it between two layers of polish. o.O But even so, there are a lot of Nabi shades I've seen that I'm interested in, so I'd definitely try more of them.
I totally loved this mani, and I'm very thankful to my sweet friend for not only the polish, but the suggestion to wear it this way. <3
