|3 coats Layla Ultra Violet, no topcoat, natural light|
I have been seeing a lot of the Layla Holographics swatches floating around lately and I was so impressed that I had to have one. All the posts said they were available on Aveyou.com, but I could not for the life of me figure out how to get them that way. They seem to be waiting for a release date still, which is odd. I finally found these on evil-bay and this gem was waiting for me when I got back from Philly. I have always wanted a brand to make a holo line that was formulated more like GOSH holographic than the glitter gal polishes. Don't get me wrong, I love the glitter gal polishes, but they aren't the same level of intense linear holo as GOSH. Layla has finally filled the void! Ultra Violet is a pinkish violet linear holo. If you grab these make sure you grab the buffer that they direct you to use first in place of a base coat. Though I am not convinced that it did anything, you should at least know before you buy that they direct you to use it. This actually applied very smoothly. I didn't have the dragging issues that GOSH and NFU Oh are plagued by. You definitely need 3 coats for opacity. It dries super fast, and doesn't want a topcoat ruining the holo effect. If you can believe it, this baby is actually even more holo in person. My deck still doesn't have direct sun so this is just a shade shot. Not bad though! Sadly these chalky holos still come off super fast. I applied this last night and had to touch up my mani this morning before snapping a pic. The good news is that this is gorgeous and it is self evening. If you need to touch up the tips you can simply blot some on the tips of your nails only and it will blend in perfectly. Win! I seriously love this holo and have already put in an order for a few more.
I hope you like it!
