I'm pretty excited to show you this polish today. Remember when we all went crazy about OPI Black Spotted, well Layla have release five bubbly effect polishes in blue, cherry, red, white and black.
I was very graciously sent this bottle from Sally at Sally Magpies Magnificent Nail Emporium after she contacted me asking if she could use some of my swatch photos. Sally Magpies are located in the UK and sell Layla, HITS, Jade, Ozotic and Picture Polish.
Layla Bubbly Effect White Meringue applied exactly like OPI Spotted did. You need to use a very very thin coat and the bubble effect is immediate. Like OPI Black Spotted, you will want to be as neat as you can with the Bubbly Effect, cause if it dries its very hard to get it off. So if you get any on your cuticles clean it off straight away.
I like how they white bubbly effect gives a white wash appearance and it tones down the bright colours I used as my background. I deliberately chose some very strong colours rather than pastels, as I wanted to see the full effect, although I do this this would look very pretty over pastel shades.
I was really happy with the final appearance of this mani, I think I prefer the white bubbly effect to OPI black spotted, but maybe that's just cause it's summer here and I'm liking the brighter lighter shades.
Here are some quick and dirty photos of the background stripes I painted taken under the bathroom light. I used my favourite bright rainbow coloured polishes (again) Pretty Serious Santa's Sunburn and Kleancolor Metallic orange, yellow, green, blue, sapphire and purple. I only painted the lines very roughly because I knew I was covering them up with the bubbly polish, but I still liked the starting look.
What do you think of the white bubbly effect polish? Are you liking it, or do you think it looks a bit too much like spilt milk on your nails?
