Layla Ocean Rush

Oh shame on me. This review is a long time coming. I have had this for too long. I was in the mood for something holographic and found this is in my need to test out stash. Layla polishes are not cheap (they retail for around $14.50 per bottle in my area), but I got a deal on this from a Hautelook* sale. I am a sucker for holographic polishes, so yes I bought this even though truthfully I own a similar color (Jade Holografico in Energy).

This polish runs a bit thin. It’s not runny, but the first layer definitely goes on very sheer and thin. Typical of holographic polishes, Ocean Rush dries really fast. I was able to get 3 coats really quickly. This looked very sheer in one coat, great with two coats, and great with three coats. I do three coats with holographic polishes (holos) because they tend to be fragile and start chipping/peeling quite easily. This dries matte, so if you love glossy nails you will need a shiny top coat to finish this off.

The holographic effect in this I felt was weak. It comes off looking like a cross between a linear and scattered holo. I admit I was a bit disappointed, because I am drawn to nail polishes with a more dynamic holographic effect (such as Nubar Reclaim and Jade Fascinio Violeta). Overall I am just not impressed with this polish. I know I got a discount on it, but even so didn’t really feel like the look justified the cost.

Oh well. *sigh*

    Aw, this is still really gorgeous Leticia! But I know what it’s like when you get something that doesn’t look how you hoped/expected it to. That sucks :(
