Layla Ceramic Effect CE52 - aka The Butterfly Effect Review/Swatches

I've been getting pretty mooshy lately while talking about blogging friends - so I thought I'd stay on the mooshy train and talk about another friend - Melissa from Lacquer Reverie.  I have raved about her blog on Facebook so many times because her posts are so fun to read.  She is so witty and I love witty people.  She is a new blogger; but has grown very quickly, and I am so proud of her.

Melissa was kind enough to surprised me with a gorgeous polish.  This is Layla Ceramic Effect CE52.  It is also known as "The Butterfly Effect". Layla CE52 Butterfly Effect Zoya Yasmeen
Isn't it beautiful?  I love it so much.  As you can see, it's a flaky polish that shows sparks of orange, yellow, red, green, and a little blue.  The flakies are suspended in a purple jelly base, so I thought I would layer it over a color that matches the base....Zoya Yasmeen.

I believe Melissa found this at Ulta.  She showed another Layla in her post here and I was surprised when she mentioned she found it at Ulta.  With Ulta being my second home, it surprises me that I have never seen them.  You better believe I will be looking for them next time I'm there.

I was so impressed with this polish....I only used one coat over two coats of Yasmeen.  Yasmeen is such a beautiful purple.  Here is how Zoya describes it: "dark blue-toned purple base with very strong red-toned medium purple shimmer and hints of gold duochrome."  It's a must have Zoya, in my opinion.

Have you tried any Layla's yet?  If so, what are your favorites? I need to go shopping:)

Thanks Melissa!!!!

    1. :) I have polished like that. I take them off when I go through and clean-up my wish list and then when I see a new post, it goes back on. I also see posts and then go to put a polish on my list and it's already there...now that's a sign!

  7. Butterfly Effect is a great Layla polish and it looks wonderful on you! The Layla Ceramic polish in black is definitely my go-to black polish for a few months now, so that is one Layla polish I can recommend.

    1. I agree, sending an email is the easiest way to talk to anyone...and I think most people are willing to talk...especially when it comes to blogging and nail polish. It's a hobby that we all enjoy and have lots to say about:)
