Layla - Bijou n. 208

| |

WARNING! Picture bombing's arriving :D

I'm really sorry for it, but this polish is probably on my top-three, so I wanted to show to all readers (and to me! Remember this blog is primarily a private list - but open to all :D - of my nail polish habits) its awesomeness.

Layla is an italian brand born in the 30's, which produces polishes and make-up. It's easy to find it in stores and perfumeries, but usually they have just normal shades, like reds ad sheer pinks, instead of something more intriguing and out of the ordinary.
But lately they renewed their product lines, and came with colours and finishes really appealing.

This blue is a little treasure, because it's precious (€5,00 for 4,5 ml, pretty a steal - by them :D) and rare: there was just this one on the shelf, while others were just vampy reds and other boring colours.

Essentially, this is the blue base of Orly's "Royal Navy", without any shimmer, just two coats of a BRIGHT, DARK, superintense blue jelly

It dries with a satiny finish, so you'll need top coat to make it like glass :>

Like any other dark jelly, when pictured, it shows the nails underneath the polish, but this time some pics turned out better and more true to life:

To the naked eye, VNL is absolutely not visible, and appears always just like in the next picture :>

In the sun, blue becomes ELECTRIC!
Again, VNL doesn't show to the eye, but it does in pictures *grrr*

Perfect in shade too *___*

Wear: very good! I can't remember how many days, but 4-5 for sure, and that's enough for me :>

It's a little pricy to me, but I can't resist, blue jellies make me weak in spirit, and I calculated that bottle will give me another 5-6 manis... Must find something similar, even if I had to try this yet :D :D

Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)

I love royal blues - I'll have to find one of my own soon :D .

Revlon "Royal" is the most common, I suppose, anyway I think you'll be able to find one in your country :>

It's a pity Essence discontinued its "Cool And The Gang" too soon..
