Layla: Flash Black
It’s funny, I’m the biggest fan of holos, duochromes and glitters but there is just something about Chanel Black Pearl that makes it my favourite. Maybe its the reference to one of my favourite Johnny Depp-featuring pirate films or the fact it is Chanel and makes it feel like a little luxury on my nails. It’s not pink or girly, more sophisticated and stylish.
That was until now.
The very lovely Bryony over at Simply Occasions sent me a Layla polish in Flash Black to try out and review.
Flash Black is dark grey / black and has the most fantastic holographic effect.
This polish came with a nail buffer to prepare a smooth surface before applying. I didn’t find any problems applying it evenly. As advised I applied a coat of top coat over a couple of coats and underneath the final layer of Layla Flash Black to help with the wear.
A-mazing holographic. I’ve been disappointed by holos before (new formula Nfu Oh Silver I’m looking at you!) but this polish aims to please. Even in low light the holographic effect is obvious and I found myself looking at my nails all the time!
This is the first Layla polish I’ve tried and it is a real stunner. Whether it was the trick with the top coat or the polish itself that helped this holographic polish last longer than the rest I’m not 100% sure, but I’ll be sure to be wearing this often. Thanks again Bryony for introducing me to such a great polish!
