Layla Ultra Violet

It’s official. I am in love.

 

Can you blame me? This is just amazing. This is my first linear holo polish, and I’m blown away. I did not use a topcoat because I was told that it could dull the holo effect. I didn’t know if I should use a basecoat so I ended up using Seche Base which is a ridge filling base coat. I don’t even know what else to say about this because I’m too busy staring at my nails.

    My oh my..I.WANT.THIS.POLISH. This is so mesmerizing. I could stare at it all night.

      Totally agree! It still looks cool even in dim light but once you get to see it in the sun, it's like your nails are alive.

    I here Nfu-Oh's Aqua Base is perfect for holos, or a matte topcoat as a base, or no base at all, but it looks like you base turned out just fine! :)

      The only thing I'm not liking is that the polish is already chipping. :( I wonder if using a special base will help. Other than the chipping (which is obviously a big deal), I am so in love with the way these look. I am going to have to be careful when I drive and wear this polish…keeping my eyes on the road will be hard!

    Hmm? What's that? You said something? I was busy staring at your nails, too! :P Hehe!
    This is such a magnificient linear holo. Your photos really capture its beauty. Well done!

      Thanks Mary! :) I am still staring at my nails. I know this is common with holos but I already have so chipping and it's bumming me out. It's not even a day yet!

      Despite the short wear, I am loving this holo. Now to get some of the other colors…green…blue…aaahhh!

    Love at first sight. Where did you get it and how much was it?? Don't Layla's run about $15? I must have this of one of it's lovely sisters. :D

      You can get them at Ulta for $15.50. Of course they were all conveniently out of stock during the 20% off sale. lol I ended up buying them on amazon and had to pay crappy shipping and stuff. :( Totally worth it, though. Now I totally want the blue and the green ones.

      1. 18 April, 2012 at 6:45 pm

        yeah Ulta annoys me because it seems like when they have a good sale going on or when it's time to collect your rewards most of the good stuff is gone and they just never replenish. I often just want to get some nail polishes and they're always like COMPLETELY out and for the entire time, they never replenish their stock. Grr. I'm hoping to get some amazon gift cards for my upcoming bday so hopefully I can pick up some new nail goodies :)

        1. 19 April, 2012 at 3:44 am

          Now that I'm shopping more at Ulta, I have totally noticed that too. Very annoying. It's like the day after the sale, everything was back in stock. What the freak?! Ooohhh….yeah….nail goodies for your b-day sounds good. :)

          1. 19 April, 2012 at 6:06 pm

            I'm headed to Ulta tomorrow… so hopefully there will at least be ONE good np left! *fingers crossed!!!*

    Yay! Did yours have any chunks?? If you've decided to become obsessed with linear holos, check out speciallita hits from shop.llarowe.com or ninjapolish.com. they are cheaper and the holo is just as amazing! And invest in the nfu-oh aqua base. (Fabulous-street.com. may or may not have a hyphen haha)

    1. 18 April, 2012 at 6:28 am

      I only tried Ultra Violet and there were no chunks. I hope the other one is fine too. OMG why did I not know about ninjapolish?!?!?! I want everything but so much is oos. :( Viennaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa you are killing me. This is going to bankrupt me. lol I am definitely going to get the aqua base. Now I'm going to need 3 melmers. hahahaha

      1. 18 April, 2012 at 7:34 am

        Hahaha i'm sorry! Not really lol llarowe is more on-top-of their stock and announces when it will be in, but ninja polish is cheaper so… :) i did order that hits holo topcoat so i can try putting it over anything (zoya charla is BEGGING for a linear holo topcoat!) I'm excited :D

      You might be able to get it cheaper because it's from Italy. At least shipping will be better. lol
