Layla Mirror Effect Nail Polish (",)

It feels like I've been waiting for these li'l beauties to arrive FOREVER (although it wasn't really).  I couldn't wait to get home from work to apply them!

After a bit of debating about which colour to wear first and a bit of a false start (they curdled on my Nails Inc Soho Silk base coat so I had to remove it) I decided to use both and painted straight on to my bare nails. After only one coat they looked fab, although I used three coats of each plus Nails Inc Kensington Caviar top coat to get this stunning effect!  The polishes didn't need the top coat to add shine as they were definitely shiny enough without but I added the top coat to prolong the staying power of these gorgeous colours!

The colours I used were Metal Chrome and Purple Diva and I love them both sooooo much!!!

If you fancy treating yourself to either of these beauties or their different coloured counterparts you can find them on the Simply Occasions site here. The lovely Bryony of Simply Occasions also has her own blog which you can find here (",)

Edit: I wore the Metal Chrome for a full mani yesterday (21 June 2012) and here are the pics! I firstly tried applying over Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Base Coat but again the polish curdled even when I applied a second coat of colour so I removed it all and started from clear nails.  These pics were taken with two coats of colour and a top coat which I only added to prevent chipping and not because any extra shine was needed!

Has anyone else tried the Layla Mirror Effects yet? Which is your favourite?


  1. OMG, you're nails are just super neat!

  2. whoaa the metal chrome one looks fantastic! it seems like foil in your last photo :D

    1. They are lovely to look at and work with! I remember getting a metallic purple years ago and was hoping for this effect but it was a major fail! I can't remember what brand it was but it started peeling as soon as it started drying :( x
