Ultra Violet, A Second Look

I know, I thought I was going to put on the new Revlon, Ocean Breeze, but I heard through the grapevine that Layla is releasing new colors soon and I decided to try the aqua base with my Ultra Violet. I think the results are stunning. I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Clearly Quick for the top coat and it didn’t dull the holo at all. As for the application of the Aqua Base, one thin coat for me was dry in ten minutes, but I waited for fifteen just to be sure. When I applied the Layla it was a whole other story then when I did it with the layered bases I had before I bought the Nfu-Oh Aqua Base. It was a dream to apply this time around.

I was so amazed! It was like any other polish, no streaking and balding on coat 1, and coat 2 was pure magic to watch as it dried. There will be a post on the new Layla’s when they share the news on their facebook page, so if you’re as excited as I am about that news, check back soon, or like them on facebook here and get the news as it’s posted right from them directly. I am tickled pink to share that my new Layla’s should arrive today, I am so looking forward to trying them out now that I have the proper base coat. Retro Pink and Ocean Rush will be well used in my collection to be sure.

I hope you like the photographs, it’s so much nicer now that I have the new camera, it’s a breeze to shoot new pictures, they all seem to come out during the day, at night the flash makes it another story however. I just might stamp over this manicure, because of the Adventures in Stamping challenge this week is to use more than one image or stamping over a gradient, and I haven’t ever tried gradients, so more than one image it will be! It was far too windy last night and I wanted to get fresh photographs of the Ultra Violet manicure before I stamped over it. I hope you’re having a great weekend and I wish you happy polishing!
