Layla - Flash Black

I have a very special polish for my readers today. This is Layla - Flash Black and it is by far the most holographic polish I have ever seen. I really cannot believe how crazy holo this polish is. It was tough for me to dish out the $16 to get it, but it was worth it! Now, if only I could afford the rest. I have my eye on Layla polishes because the Mirror Effect collection looks beautiful as well. Maybe someday! I ordered this from Harlow & Co but you can also get it at Ulta and Ninja Polish.

I used the sandwich method for this polish since the top coat tends to take away from the holographic effect. I used 2 coats as a base, a coat of Seche Vite, then another coat of Layla. After doing this I realized I probably didn't need to use the Layla for the base coat and maybe saved a bit of the polish just using a similar color.

Color:  Layla - Flash Black: $16 Harlow & Co, $15.50 Ninja Polish, $15.50 Ulta.
Top Coat: Seche Vite - Dry Fast Top Coat: $8 Sally Beauty Supply, $10.
Base Coat: Orly - Bonder: $5.39 TransDesign, $7.49 Sally Beauty Supply & CVS.


  1. My nail polish guys asked me about Layla and I told them it would sell well...and they'd be selling it for half the price other places have been selling it for. :D

    Told them that the price range they're looking at - around $8 a bottle - is not bad at all.

  2. Gorgeous swatches, Lauren. Such awesomely big rainbows <3 <3
