Layla - CE54 Green Galaxy

| |

At the end of the summer I had to chop off all my nails: I kept a patch on my right-hand middle finger because of a crack which was in the pink part of the nail, but when crack grew enough to be in the white part, I decided to shorten them all :>
Who cares about that? Probably no one :D

So, pictures!

(indoor daylight)

Dark green jelly base and silver glitters (yes, they're silver, but clearly look green because of the green base).
This is a way too much yellow green for my tastes, and contains glitters I usually don't like (shape and dimension), but all in all I loved it on me, don't know why.
Maybe if you put together bad things, you can obtain a good one? :D

(outdoor, full sun)

In the sun is an explotion of green sparkles, but not so... glam.
Three coats, it easily leaves bald spots so you might want to add touches of colour (the jelly base or just one hex glitter) all around to cover them!

Outdoors, especially during nice days, it reflects the colour of the sky, and green becomes cooler:

Ah, short nails... I don't like them on me, I have short bed nails :(
But I don't know if I dared to wear "Green Galaxy" on longer nails...


See the blue sky? :>

(indoor, full sun)

Flaws: removal was a true pain in... you know what: those hex glitters,  I found them ALL OVER the entire house, because sometimes they chipped one by one, falling on the floor, or during removal.
Foil method is highly recommended, and I suggest you to leave cotton pads enough minutes to soak nails well, but I had to use q-tips anyway after to get rid of all the hexagons :^[

Good news: at least it doesn't stain :D


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

Se tu hai le unghie corte io sono la Regina d'Inghilterra!
Su questo colore ho proprio passato, non sono amante di questi jelly glitterosi, voglio poter dosare il glitter ed il colore a mio piacimento, però è proprio un bel verde!

I like the new length of your nails. They look great to me.
Btw, have you tried the Essence peel off basecoat? People seem to like it very much to be used with glittery polishes. I just bought it but haven't tried it yet.

Comprato quest'estate, mai provato. Piantarla di comprare quando ne ho un centinaio fra gli untrieds no, eh? :D
Comunque da fan del verde e dei glitter rimango incantata, ma son ben felice di avere la base peel off della Essence visto il casino per rimuoverlo!

Ohhh... it's so pretty! *-* Would you tell me how much you paid for this beauty?

Probabilmente, se fosse solo "base" e non avesse dentro tutti quei "pezzi" (come mi piace chiamare quei maxiglitter) sarebbe anche nella mia lista (lunghissima) di untrieds.
Niente da fare, se già ho un amore-odio con i glitterini, con quei cosi enormi proprio non c'è storia...non riesco a farmeli andar giù.

stregalice, sì, non sono cortissimissime, però, insomma, se guardi il post prima, come le avevo... sigh, queste son foto di almeno un mese e mezzo fa, e ora non sono nemmeno troppo diverse >.<
Neanche a me piacciono i glitteroni, si sa, ma questo è un po' diverso :>

marox79, thank you! These pictures are from september, and we didn't have that Essence base yet...
Anyway, I don't like it so much, looks like it makes nailpolish less resistant, and I need my manicure to last like one week :D

Cristina , vedi un po' se si rimuove più facilmente, siamo curiose :D
Penso di avere la tastiera piena di esagoni, sotto i tasti >.<

Hi Maki, this one I got it from Likeacandyshop-Elsa, she found a store in her city which had Laylas at €5... Here in Milan they're priced €8 at least!

QueenMiSeRy, non piacciono neanche a me, li trovo infantili, ma in questo caso, essendo la base parecchio scura, diciamo che si vedono più come riflessi che come "glitteroni interi", non so se mi sono spiegata :D
In effetti, alla fine di smalti così ho solo questo e il "Blue Addicted" della Essence, preso più che altro per il nome :D

I'm not a green lover but this one looks gorgeous :D

sabbatha said...

I haaaaaaaaveee itttttttttt <3

Smaltoitaliano said...

It's beautiful, Lendoxia!

WHO brought it to you, my dear? :D ^__________^

gnoma gno said...

L'ho preso pure io e concordo sulla tua rece, sebbene averlo messo anche io in estate non mi ha fatto ottenere l'effetto che speravo. <3

Ma mica è da buttar via, eh :D
