Layla Hologram: Flash Black – Swatches and Drool
Oh, wow.My mother…she is addicted to Layla Holographic polishes. I blame her not one iota. She bought this, and wore it… and the holographicness was stunning, but it looked a little flat and grey on the nail (bare nail, primed with buffer etc etc etc). So, when she lent it to me to try (THANK YOU! SQUEEE!), I put on two coats of Color Club After Hours first. So, these swatches are two coats of Layla Flash Black over the After Hours – and it made a big difference to how deep, rich, and dark Flash Black looked:
This was Flash Black inside, no direct sunlight, and you can still see the ghost rainbow dancing around in the charcoal grey.
And then I took it outside, into the early morning winter sunshine…
And fell in love. I mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And a whole hand photo….
There was no top coat on here, I do find there is a tiny bit of rainbow dulling with my fast dry top coat, and I don’t have any other kind. I still got a good two days wear out of this before the chipping became noticeable. This was an amazing polish. I spent two days staring at my hands. I do wish it was black black, but.. this is one of only three polishes I have that I would be ok with having on permanently (the other two, off the top of my head, being Orly Space Cadet and A-England Dragon, subject to change!). I will buy this polish one day. It will be mine. Oh yes…
Have a great day!
