Layla Ceramic Effect 53 Red Flakie

Yeah baby - six out of six awesome polishes that I bought from Layla. Three of those polishes I purchased based on just the bottle photo, and three off just one swatch photo, so I'm so happy they are all totally amazing.

This one is Ceramic Effect number 53 and as you can see, it's a stunning red jelly with red flakies that have a light orange to green colour shift.

This was two coats of 53 over Nail Tek II Foundation and with one coat of Seche Vite top coat.

When I grabbed this bottle out, I was still wearing Layla 64 that I showed yesterday, so I layered one coat over the top of it.  Arrrggggggghhhhhh *wipes drool from mouth* It was so pretty.

As you can see, this flakie polish doesn't hold back in the flakie department.  With just this one coat there were tons of gorgeous red flakies on my nails.

I'm know I'm sounding a bit "wow, look at this amazing polish, its so beautiful" and it seems I'm saying that a lot lately.  But really and truly, if you've followed my blog for a while you will know that if something doesn't live up to my expectations then I will certainly let you know.  So when I say this polish is really very special, know that you will not be disappointed if you get it.

Oh and in case you were wondering (which of course I know you all are, because these dull happenings in my life are so important to other people ;) the heater fixer man fixed the ducted gas heating today.  Oh the warm neutral feeling of 21 degrees has never felt so good. 


  1. Holy crapola, this is STUNNING!!!

  2. Aaaaaaaaaahhhh...their flakies are so gorgeous! Even though I have a couple Nfu Oh flakies, I'm still sorely tempted by these swatches now. *__*

  3. Ok, clearly must wear this next! looks stunning, and your swatches are impeccable, as always! :)

  4. The second one is soo pretty

  5. *Swoon* You are making me lem these Ceramic Effects!!!

  6. AAAHHHHHHH! I can't believe how awesome this is. Sooo gorgeous!

  7. Beautiful... I want to go swimming in it.

  8. Whoa!!! That's truly an amazing polish. I need it :D

  9. These are so pretty. You are killing my polish budget. Ha, did I say budget! No such thing!

  10. This is another fab Layla Ceramic effect - until you bought them and started showing them off on your blog, I think everyone was ignoring this line from Layla and just looking at their holos. I am FAR more interested in their Ceramic effects now. These are just so pretty and certainly look like you went to a ton of work doing jelly sandwiches. I am so excited these are no brainer - open the bottle and paint - 3 coats is not bad at all.

  11. Wow, Layla hits another one out of the park with these flakies. After seeing swatches of a lot of their products, I'm convinced they can do no wrong!

    Also, I'm jealous that it's cool enough in your hemisphere to need the heat on. It's blazing hot summer here!
