Too many rainy days have left me craving some neon nails, so I decided to grab some bright colours to cheer myself up. In the process I saw my bottle of Layla Bubbly in Black & thought it would look really neat over a neon-ish base colour.
For this manicure I used:
- Base Coat: Perfect Forumla Pink Gel Coat
- Top Coat: Cutex Quick Dry Top Coat
- ORLY Scenic Route
- Icing Breakfast at Tiffany’s
- China Glaze Sun Upon My Skin
- Icing Pink A Boo
- Layla Cosmetics Bubbly Effect in Black
I’ve owned this bottle of Layla Bubbly effect for a while (I scored it on sale at Lawton’s in the clearence like 3 years ago) but this was the first time I really got it to work for me the way I imagine it’s supposed to work. I did wait until the next morning to add the black, so maybe that made the difference? Either way I’m super excited about how it turned out! Like crackle nails, it just offers an easy way to create nail art without excessive work (or mess).
& incase you were interested in seeing what my base looked like before I added the Bubbly topper, here was the base. I tried to attempted @laqvid‘s wet dry brush design but I’m definitely going to need to give it more practice.
What do you think of this design? Have you ever tried the Layla Bubbly Effect polishes before? Let me know the comments below!
