Layla Ceramic Effect Polish: Swatches and Review

I'm back! My finals are over, my papers are submitted, and my first semester of graduate school is over. Now I can blog guilt-free!

Today I bring you a nifty new addition to my polish collection. I found Layla Ceramic Effect nail polishes at Ulta and decided to give them a try:

This is a brand I am unfamiliar with but so far I am pleased. This polish retailed for $9.95 and is a medium purple jelly base with copper/gold flakies suspended in it. Not the most unique, but I do not have anything like it in my slowly growing collection. This color is CE 52
I am not really sure what ceramic effect means, but I do know that the coats on this polish dried super-humanly fast! I was able to paint my nails chip and smudge free in about 10 minutes with two coats. Nice!
The more I look at this color, the more I like it. It is really cool and very striking in the light! The formula is nice to work with and the brush is decent too!
Final Thoughts: I have a few more Layla polishes to test out, but I think they have a nice color range and decent formula. I'm not blown away, but my curiosity is piqued.
Price:  7/10

Staying Power: 8/10

Packaging: 8/10

Color/Wearability: 10/10

Quality/Branding: 9/10
Total: 42/50 = B = Panda says, "Alright, alright!"
Have you tried Layla polishes? Thoughts? They are fun, but I still haven't made up my mind on the line as a whole.

  1. yayy congrats on finishing your first semester! Oh man I LOVE this color! I'm gonna dig out SH Hidden Treasure wherever it is and try layering it over purple. Thanks for the inspiration ;)

    1. No problem!!! And thank you so much, it is such a relief!

  2. The first semester's always a relief when it's over. You're giving me all kinds of inspiration for gifts with these polishes. I hardly ever do my nails, but my mom and other ladies in my family all do. I'm not sure what ceramic effect means either...

    1. I know, it was a wonderful feeling!! Honestly, nail polish makes a great gift. You can customize it, it is reasonably cheap (in most cases) and most people seem to like it!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it!
