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".
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:)
