today's Layla Hologram Effect is Mercury Twilight, a strong silver linear holo... yummy! i used one coat of Seche Vite as the base, it worked better than other bases i've used, but i did still experience some dragging. i think this polish is best worn without a basecoat, unless you have a base specifically designed for this type of polish (which i unfortunately don't currently possess). two thick coats should be enough for full opacity; however, i had to add another thin coat to cover up some bald spots on a couple nails.
i can't get over my nubbie nails (and this is my right hand, no less!)... i'm currently on the hunt for something to strengthen my nails, do you all have any suggestions? i'm not sure why they have gotten so frail and brittle all of the sudden... they've never been great, but they literally have just started shattering out of the blue! i confess i'm now afraid to have long nails, i never want to experience the giant chunk ripping off into the quick again... icky!
i hope you all are having a great week! Ria :)
