My aveyou.com order arrived yesterday and I am delighted to bring you Retro Pink in all its glory. With the Nfu-Oh Aqua Base it was dreamy to apply, it glides on so easily that I can’t imagine using anything else with it. One coat is nice, but sheer, two is magic! I waited for the morning sun to get these photos, except for the one of the bottles, that I took yesterday. But then it’s not so showy in the bottle, it’s on the nail that these polishes come alive! I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Clearly Quick for my top coat and again, there was no dulling of the amazing holo.
I really love my Layla’s, and have heard through the grapevine more colors are coming very soon. From what I understand there will be a Gold, a Red, an Emerald Green and many other cool new holographic colors. This is wonderful news because it tells me that these aren’t limited edition for the moment. That’s great because I know there are a lot of people who wish they had gotten in on the China Glaze OMG series, and weren’t able to, now they can get true linear holo polishes at not so bad prices. There is a coupon, two actually, for aveyou, “ALLCHIC” for 20% off your order and “GIMME25” for $25 off an order of $100 or more and as far as I know they expire on 5-31-12.
I hope you enjoy the photographs, I really love the new camera and think it’s great that it can capture the holoness of my new Layla polishes. The other camera I was using never could do justice to Ultra Violet, but it did fine with other polishes. I am thinking of doing an accent ring finger stamp on this manicure, but I’m not sure. It’s just so gorgeous on its own, what do you think? Should I stamp over a Layla? I have the urge to, then I think about how nice it is alone and the urge to stamp passes. Thank you for checking out my blog and I wish you happy polishing!
