I had no intention of taking off Zoya Blu as early as I did, but I woke up to a surprisingly clear and sunny morning and I was suddenly afflicted with holo fever. Here's Layla Ultra Violet. You've seen this one many times before, but it's my first holo of the year and I'm excited. ;)
You probably remember the big to-do about needing a special buffing stick, not using base or topcoat, and what a pain in the neck this stuff is to apply, anyway... I've been using Duri Rejuvacote as my basecoat exclusively for the past three months or so, and I just slapped on this holo with no prep work, nothing over or under, and I had zero issues. It applied like butter; no tugging, patching, or balding. The only issue I have with these Laylas at this point is the fact that half this mani will be gone by the time I get home from work. It does not adhere to the nail, and for $14 a pop, it's hardly worth it. I picked this up for $7 while the whole collection was on clearance at Ulta and while it's still pretty steep for a mani that doesn't last, the rainbow is gorgeous and it's got a remarkably quick dry time, making it perfect for something fast,easy, and really cool.
Thanks for reading! ☼
