Layla Cosmetics Hologram Effect Nail Polish in Retro Pink - Swatches and Review

Layla Retro Pink


Pin ItToday I have for you another polish from the Italian brand Layla. This is their "new" Hologram Effect polish in 03 "Retro Pink." My first thought was I wouldn't like this, as I do not like most pink holos... let's see if I changed my mind!

There is no denying that there is a strong holo here!  This is three coats over butter LONDON Nail Foundation - a base coat with a smooth matte finish.  I had heard rumors it worked as well as Nfu-Oh Aqua Base and the like, so I thought I would try it out under this Layla.  As you can see, it worked!

While I fully appreciate the strong holographic nature of this polish, I am not digging the color on me.  I like my holos to be brighter, richer colors - which Layla does make!  Let's look at them below:

I have my eye on Ocean Rush and Flash Black!

The Layla Hologram Effect polishes are available now on AveYou.com and Harlow & Co.  They will also be available in May at ULTA.  You can also find the butter LONDON Nail Foundation there as well!

UPDATE:  The Layla Holos are currently available on Ulta's website, but they won't be in the stores until May. (Thanks Kristen!)
