Nails of the Day: Layla Magneffect Double Dose

Have you heard of Layla Magneffect nail polish?

It reminds me of the special edition DVD box set of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. It comes with one of those hologram-style lenticular pictures where, when you look at it from one angle you see Harry and Draco, and from another you see Dumbledore and Snape.

Layla Magneffect is like that. It moves and morphs…like a 3D hologram.

On my left hand, I have Velvet Groove, one coat.

How it works: Coat your nail with the Magneffect polish, then flip over the cap, while it’s still wet, and hold the cap over the polish. It will create holographic lines in the polish in the direction of the line on the cap.

Layla promises that you don’t need a base or top coat, and I found that to be true. I’ve had this on my nails for a week now and it only has a few very tiny chips. This is high quality stuff.

Though, admittedly, I liked Velvet Groove better than Golden Nugget. How about you?

  1. That is so cool! I’ ll have to try this one. Where can I get it?

  2. Those are so gorgeous, but I’d probably just mess them up. I’m not very talented at manicures!

    • It’s actually a lot easier than you’d think! Just put it on like any other polish. The only thing you have to do differently is hold the cap over the wet polish for a few seconds. Easy peasy.

  3. I love the effect, it’s gorgeous! I really have to try these polishes!
