Layering NOTD: Nfu.Oh 126 over Cult Nails Captivated and Illamasqua Gamma – a squishy orange glitter sandwich

Layering Nfu.Oh 126 yellow jelly over Cult Nails Captivated and Illamasqua Gamma

Hi everyone! :)
I must be on a layering kick with jelly sandwiches lately! ๐Ÿ˜€ A week ago I was swatching Illamasqua Gamma from their Toxic Nature Spring Summer 2011 collection and immediately thought this must be a great base color for a layering with Cult Nails Captivated from their new A Day at the Races collection. Because of my new found love for jelly sandwiches I decided to also layer one coat of a jellow Nfu.Oh jelly with the number 126 over this manicure.

I love love love the result and still – six days after application – I am wearing it on my nails. Because it is now starting to chip I need to remove it though.. tomorrow. I need one more evening with this squishy orange layering deliciousness:

Gamma was sent to me by Illamasqua for review consideration.

So squishy. โ™ฅ ๐Ÿ˜€ Because Gamma is a neon nail polish this layering is even brighter in real light.

I don’t really want to remove this manicure because I love it so much but next to the starting chipping my nails desperately need to be filed down at least 2 mm. As much as I love a bit longer nails with a certain length they start to annoy me for example when typing on my keyboard. The feeling when long nails are touching a key? Horrible. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Do you have Cult Nails Captivated? If yes I highly recomment to try it with a yellow or orange jelly on top if you like squishy nail polish sandwiches.

Thanks for looking and have a great week! โ™ฅ :)

    • Bad Kitty’s base color is more pink than the base of Captivated which is more orange Marketta. I will look this evening at the bottles side by side if the glitter is different too and let you know. :)

  1. I’m in love with Nfu Oh nail polishes! I don’t have any yet but I’m plannig on buying some!! I NEED some!!
    I’m also into a jellies and layering mood now!!

    I really like your blog! There are so much info and pretty swatches! I’m a bit in a hurry now but I’ll come back later for sure! ;D

    • Aww thank you so much Nailderella! I am on a huge jelly kick lately too. You can make so much with them and I love how squishy they are. Like you have colored glass on your nails or a layer of colored glass over an old manicure if you layer it. I definitely need to buy more jellies too. Especially the new Nfu.Oh jellies look so promising but they are not available in Europe yet. :(

  2. Oh Em Gee, this is amazing. I have been on the hunt for some oranges and yellows that will look good on me, and I think this is the perfect combo to try. Mind you I don’t have any of them so now I have to go shopping :)

    Wow! Beautiful!! I really want Gamma, but they’re so expensive.. :/
    My first though about how to try this myself without any of the polishes is China Glaze Dreamsicle and OPI Y’all Come Back Ya Hear? On top. How do you think that’m work out? :)

    • Thank you so much Karoline! :)
      The OPI Sorbets should be great for glitter/jelly sandwiches! :) Dreamsicle looks also like a great glitter to try this kind of orange glitter/jelly sandwich. :)
