Layla Emerald Divine

Continuing to go through some of my new polishes, today I have got Layla Holographic #10 Emerald Divine to show you. It is a medium forest green holographic shade, the same formula as the other Laylas I have. I used two coats followed again by Nail Polish Sealer. I think it is not as prismatic as some other, like Flash Black, but I'm still really surprised, when I catch a glimpse of my nails in bright light.

Layla Flash Black

Flash Black is one of the polishes that I picked up recently. It is so unassuming in the bottle, but on the nails it looks gorgeous. I used two coats of polish, which I think is the same for all my Layla holographic polishes. On top I used Laylas's Nail Polish Sealer, a top coat kind of product, which is the only one I have ever tried that gives insane shine and doesn't dull the prismatic effect at all. Although it claims to prolong nail polish wear 'until you decide to remove your polish', it prolonged the wear for me on this polish by one day.

Baltic Beauty 2013 Haul

A few weeks ago I took a break from writing my thesis to g9o and see what the local beauty exhibition had to offer this year. I knew in advance that the company I get the majority of my polishes from (at least OPI, Orly, China Glaze, SpaRitual, and now Cuccio Colour) were not going to be there, so it seemed that it might not be worth going.
In the end I ended up getting quite a lot of things. The most surprising was the Jessica Hologram Chic duo.
I will be showing the polishes over the coming weeks, but for now I can say that I love the nail buffer - it leaves my nails super shiny and the white polish by Jessica is easily my favourite white polish now.
