Layla Holo - Coffee Love

Before I start I'd like to take a minute to nag you all to take a minute to vote for me for New Blogger of the Month at Fingerprints, I'd appreciate it ever so :)  - the link can be found HERE

Also a reminder (in case you've been living in a cave and missed it!) that the MASSIVE British Nail Bloggers Giveaway is still live until the end of the month - Giftcards to your choice of e-tailers up for grabs!! Enter HERE and best of luck! 

Today on the blog I have a brand of polish I have never tried before but I imagine I definitely will again! This is Layla, which I got from Sally Magpies in her sale for only £1.50. Their range of holo polishes are gorgeous, and as I've never really tried proper holo polishes that other bloggers go nuts over I thought I might as well.

Coffee Love is a chocolate brown, almost purple brown in some lights, and has an amazing array of colours when the sun hits it! I even painted this in the park while I was sunning myself! Wearing this I FINALLY began to understand other bloggers love for holographic polishes

Critisms, the formula was a little weird, you have to be pretty careful not to go over the bit you just applied until it is properly dry otherwise you get bald patches, however I had a bald patch on my thumb and because of the shine I didn't notice for hours so you can easily get away with it! The other downside is that out of the sun it's just another shimmery polish. It is still lovely just not as special, which is a shame. 

So based on colour, formula and holo-y goodness I'd give this a 7 or 8 out of 10 :) 

Don't forget to have a look at what all the other British Nail Bloggers are up to this week :)
