Layla Ultra Violet

I had about 3 other posts to prepare but after I put this polish on, I know I had to push this one to the front of the line!

Purple and linear holo...what more could I want!!

This is 2 coats over my regular base plus a thin coat of the Jessica holo base coat. I used SH Diamond Flash t/c on this. For some reason, SH t/c's keep the holo from dulling and help them wear longer than a regular polish.

Layla is an Italian brand that is a little pricey but worth it if you want a good holo polish. They came out with a line of magnetic polishes last year that had a great color range...not just the standard dark, murky brown tinged hues that we had seen with the start of the magnetic craze.

A very sweet friend turned me on to these Layla holos...she has an AMAZING holographic nail polish collection that I kind of envy! But, I am always in awe when I see photos of all of them together. Holo may not be for everyone but I know I will always be a fan!

Nails Inc. Whitehall

2 coats, SH Diamond Flash t/c.

I am still trying to get the hang of these magnetic polishes. When you get the design right, they look amazing! Almost reminds me of the glow of a piece of Tiger's Eye.

I have a few brands of megnetics but so far...I love the Nail's Inc.

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. As most of you know, I have another passion that almost over shadows my love of nail polish...that is Roller Derby! Our derby season will start on March 3rd and I have been focusing on my training and conditioning for the season. But, you best believe my nails will be looking fab while I give some booty bumps and stumble trough the pack!!

Butter London: DIsco Biscuit

Happy Day After Valentine's Day!!

I hope you all got pretty flowers and gorged on chocolates...or effectively sulked your way through the day because you hate the idea of commercialized love. I had the best of both worlds and loved every minute of it!!

This was my V-Day mani. 3 coats of Butter London's Disco Biscuit. The formula on this one was a bit odd. It was thick and almost gel like. It was also pretty sheer and could have used a 4th coat in order to get it more opaqe. I actually like the look with 3 coats. It's vibrant but still looks squishy. Can you see the pretty shimmer in there too? It has these tiny violet blue micro glitters that appear translucent...so pretty! I did not think I would have liked this one as much as I do. I have a feeling it will be used again very, very soon.

Also, please check out my BLOG SALE tab. I have added many new items!! Help me rehome some lovely polishes!!!
