Yay! my first post of 2014! Happy new year everyone, I hope you had a great Christmas!
Today I have a stunning polish to show you and a bit of nail art too. I recently purchased Layla the butterfly effect from Sally Magpies. This polish really seemed to catch my eye with gorgeous colour shifting flakies in a purple jelly base, perfect! I originally thought I might have to use a base colour first but actually it's just amazing without. I used two coats for the swatches below, although they were rather thick coats. I wasn't a fan of the brush for some reason, I didn't find it easy to paint neatly with but the formula was great.
I added a layer of HK Girl topcoat (which is definitely now my new favourite topcoat!) to make it super glossy. I also wanted to try out the polish Matte too as I know flakies look amazing matte! I really liked the effect, but I think glossy is my favourite in person at least.
Seeing as the polish is named the butterfly effect, I couldn't resist finishing with some butterfly wing nail art! I stamped using MoYou London Pro Collection 05 plate and Konad black and then added dots using Color Club Eternal Beauty and Cloud Nine.
What do you think of this polish, have you tried it? I've decided that for my new year's resolution I'm going to make sure I blog more, comment more and get back into freehand nail art, so watch this space :)
