Layla Ceramic Effects 34

I first talked about Layla Cosmetics back in May 2011 (whoa) when they were talking about bringing their Graffiti line (crackle/shatter) to the US but instead they brought their Magneffect line (I swear, I will be reviewing them in 2012).  While at Cosmoprof, they also had their "ceramic effect" line, which was the normal line of polishes.  I got this and a gold color.  CE 34 is a dusty purple grey with purple shimmer.  I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry.  Just as a note, you don't have to wear a base coat or top coat with Layla... old habits die hard!


Let met tell you about this brush... it's LONG.  On the left is the Layla brush, on the right is a Seche Vite brush.  Despite the extra length, I didn't find it harder to paint my nails.


Here in the sun you can see a faint pink shimmer on the nail.  Definitely a big fan of this kind of color.


Meanwhile in the shade, the color takes on a dark purple/grey look, no shimmer to be found here!


Indoors with the flash?  Hello shimmer!  I definitely am a big fan of the formula and color.


Ceramic Effects retails for $9.95 but I've seen it on sale for as low as $8.50.


Layla Cosmetics is distributed to the US through the Luxcon Group who has a Facebook Page to several online websites including Zappos, AVEYOU, Brigette's Boutique, Amazon, and Drugstore.
