Flash Black!

Of course I chose to wear a holo during a week where it's raining most of the time :(

The good news is that Layla's Flash Black shows off it's rainbows in indoor lighting too! And lucky me, at work I have a pot light right over my desk so I get to stare at the prettiness all day long :) My camera isn't the best with picking up holos for some reason, I'd say it is way stronger and prettier in person. I did include lots of pictures though :)

I applied two coats of Flash Black over Ebony Hates Chris. Application was a little difficult as first, but once I got he hang of it I felt like it was alright. The trick I find is to move quickly and smoothly with a light hand, this way you do not get any balding.

One coat was a little uneven, this may be due to the fact that I was still trying to figure out the best application. So after another coat I let it dry and left if at that. I attempted to add a top coat but the holo effect wasn't as great as I would have liked so I left it alone.

In the bottle is doesn't look like much, but on the nail, whoa!

All photos are large so please click!

So far I am on my sixth day of wear and I have not experienced any chipping, only tip wear from my keyboard at work. Im thinking using a base polish helped out with that. I am very surprised it lasted this long without a top coat.

    1. For real! it was so hard to capture on my camera, but what you see is what I could get, no photo editing or anything!

  2. Wow, wow, wow, great picks of this!!! You pushed me over the edge, I'm making a trip out to Ulta tomorrow to grab one while they're still available.

    1. Nice!I live in Canada but was in in the the States last at the end of March and asked someone at Ulta if they had these in yet... they had no idea what I was talking about! They didn't even know what Layla was lol hopefully they will have some left when I am there next at the end of the month, the blue ones look really pretty too :)
