Layla Hologram Effect Emerald Divine
I’m used to most Layla holographics having a tricky formula: thin, prone to patchiness and balding, temperamental. Stunningly beautiful, of course, so you can easily overlook those wee flaws, but I tend to instinctively layer these polishes first – as I posted here.
Wrong choice with Emerald Divine, it has a great formula and looks much better on it’s own!
This is three coats, no base coat and no top coat. As with all Layla hologram polishes, this is SO easy to take off. The downside to that is how fast it wears – within hours, usually. This colour seemed to last a whole day without much noticeable tipwear, which is pretty good for this brand! The coats are SUPER thin, and very fragile, and sooo beautiful.
Look at those rainbows…
This is a lighter, almost grass green. Not quite, but not emerald either. Who cares, it’s gorgeous!
And here is a photo of both hands – my left (swatching!) hand has the three coats of Emerald Divine on it’s own, and the right hand has two coats of Emerald Divine layered over China Glaze Jolly Holly. THIS was a tricky shot – basically I hung the camera around my neck and set the timer for 2 seconds and hoped the lens was pointing in the right direction… hehehe FLUKE!
Have a great day!
