Layla Hologram Effect Mermaid Spell & Flash Black Review

Thursday, May 24, 2012nail a college drop out

As promised I have an actual review of Layla Hologram Effects.

1.      On clean bare nails, take the Layla 2-sided emery board marked ‘side 1’ and rub all over the nail. 
 2.      Immediately buff the nails with ‘side 2’ and a glossy base coat will appear. [Side 2 is white so there is no confusion. But be warned to buff at your own risk].
3.      Apply one full coat of Hologram Effect nail polish onto the nail. Wait a couple of seconds to add the second coat.  
4.      Apply Top Coat.  [I've heard mixed reviews about top coats dulling the Hologram Effect. Seche Vite seems to work just fine for me].
Hologram Effect’s fast drying, high coverage polish will last 1 week.  The revolutionary formula will not stain the nail and is free of toluene, camphor, formaldehyde and DBP. Choose from 8 intense colors to produce holographic nail art at your fingertips: Mercury Twilight, Coral Glam, Retro Pink, Ultra Violet, Jade Groove, Mermaid Spell, Ocean Rush and Flash Black.

Layla Hologram Effect and Magneffect are available at Ulta Stores nationwide / and retails for $15.50.

Sounds easy peasy lemon squeezy, right? That's because it is. If you'll notice the instructions don't say anything about a base coat. Reason being, you don't actually need one. I had no problems with staining. But because I'm a dyed in the wool base coater, I applied a few of these with my usual base coat and only had run-ins with streaks and dragging when I didn't let my base coat dry completely.

That was quick and painless right? Thought so.
