Layla Ceramic Effect 53 is a delicious apple red jelly with flakies. I would say it had me at jelly, but then it REALLY had me at flakies. :)
Killing Red's jelly formula was a bit thin and you can certainly see Mr. Vaneli (visible nail line) peeking through, but it looks worse in photos than in real life. I used two coats for the photos. The flakies apply well and evenly and give a lovely, fiery, orange-gold glow. Ahhhh...reminds me of a yule log. ;)
My other Layla Ceramic Effect that positively screams "O CHRISTMAS TREE!" is #54, Green Galaxy.
Galaxy Green is a beautiful deep emerald green. It's one of those greens that looks slightly blackened. Green Galaxy is positively packed with green glitters of all sizes. Especially pretty in this one are the micro glitters...they make this polish twinkle like a little star. :)
How do you like these true Christmas colors? Layla Ceramic Effect polishes are lovely and long wearing. Unfortunately, Ulta has stopped carrying them, but Ninja Polish carries an excellent selection of Layla.
Funny story about these two polishes...they were a Christmas gift from my sister last year. My family, unusual beings that we are, never writes the correct "from whom" names on present tags. We have done that for as long as I can remember. We usually like to drop some sort of connection hint in the name. Well, last year my sister wrapped this big box of cosmetics, including these polishes, and everything she bought had glitter or shimmer in it. The tag read "To: Melissa, From: Tramps 'R' Us". LOLOLOL!! I still love that one. :P
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
