Layla "Flash Black"

Happy Monday everybody!  Today I have my first Layla Hologram Effect Nail Polish. Wow, was I sleeping on this collection when they came out. Now that I have "Flash Black, I need them all! :)



























First, I started off with this manicure using Layla "Flash Black" 3 coats, and then 2 coats of Cult Nails "Nevermore"  on my accent finger, (my new favorite black)...
















I used Nfu-Oh "Aqua Base", to make sure the holo color applied to a perfectly smooth surface. There are other products you can use, but I prefer to you aqua base as my base coat with my holo polishes. After aqua base dried I applied the Layla careful and smoothly, and it dried nicely.



























I figured with a black holographic manicure why not do a black accent nail, but I was bored with it after 1 day, LOL...so I did a quick and cute nail art idea on saw on another blog.
















I used my dotting tool to do this art design. I painted half of the nail in holo color, then I applied dots yo each side at the edge of the 2 colors. That's it!

The design was a bit bigger on my right hand than my left, oh well, it was still cute :) I topped this with Sally Hansen "Hard As Nails" (with the black top) and then SV to make is dry faster. :)














This is my first Layla, but not my last, LOL!  Do you have any of the Layla Holos? Which ones?


Keep it sweet!
Pin It!

I love that accent nail! Its so cute! And I thought for sure you had some nifty gizmo, not just a dotting tool. I am totally going to mimic that design.

stop tempting me with these Layla's dammit! ;)
At first, I thought you used a nail decal to make the shape, but reading your post, I have to say, I am impressed! It's really pretty. :D

That looks so cute with the stamp! I'm about to buy Nfu Oh aqua base, so I hope it works just as well for me.
