Swatch: Layla - Flash Black 08

This polish is completely amazing, I totally love it! My sister got me it for Christmas but I had been waiting until we finally got some sun in the UK to show it off to it's full amazing holographic potential. Which is why this is a picture heavy post! Even indoors without direct light it is still amazing.

Indoors - Flash

Indoors - No Flash (even with the blur you can still see the holo)

Couple of bonus indoor photos

These photos are three thin coats and they do have a habit of dragging so make sure the coat before is fully dry before going in with the next one. I didn't use a base coat but I did use a topcoat, Gelous which didn't dull the holo as you can see.

So yes this is an amazingly strong linear holo polish, however again this isn't a black holo. More of a grey /  charcoal holo, it must be difficult to make a holo in true black, my mission is to find one! Closest is A England's Bridal Veil however the holo isn't very strong. If you happen to have any suggestions do share them with me.

  1. That's weird - I was wearing this yesterday! I agree it's quite grey, but I think with all the rainbow, it doesn't really matter! It's a real beauty, even just by candlelight you get the holo effect.

    I've heard that Color Club Beyond is pretty close to black, but I think it's the holo particles themselves that are silver, and so lighten the base. Maybe. I might have just made that up!

    1. Totally agree it is amazing, even in low lights. I've had two Color Club recommendations, yours and Revolution. Jade Magia is nice too, perhaps I ought to compare the two?

    1. Me too, the bad weather can be quite depressing.
