Layla CE 34 Lavender Mud

we're still on a mission to completely catch up on Rookie Blue... i'm still loving it! my husband had the day off from school for Labor Day... which means we spend the day watching the show :D and he also had to spend it on schoolwork, sadly for him. always makes me breathe a sigh of relief that i'm done with school!

today we have another Layla lovely, their Ceramic Effect 34, Lavender Mud. i really think that's a great name for this polish... it's a dusty, dirty purple creme with the barest hint of pink shimmer running through it. that shimmer is hard to find, it mostly just lends depth to the overall color. the formula is great, two easy coats for full opacity! it dries pretty shiny on it's own, but it's even better with topcoat :)

two coats CE 34 Lavender Mud, one coat Seche Vite.

it's even harder to find the shimmer in person than it is in the photo!

Layla polishes can be found here on Ninja Polish and at various other online retailers... their Hologram Effect and Magneffect polishes can be found at Ulta and (although their selection is limited now... they might not have them for much longer)!

i'm working on growing my nails out again and getting a good almondish shape to them... clearly i haven't gotten the shape right yet! they look so different with polish on than they do without... i think i need to start filing when i've already got on polish. hope you've all had a fantastic start to your week! Ria :)

:: this polish was given to me for review, these are my honest opinions! ::


  1. It reminds me of Chanel Paradoxal (or Rimmel Hot List, Essence Love, Peace and Purple, Barry M Dusky maive...etc.). I really like this shade. :)

    1. the shimmer is so sneaky, it's much less noticeable in most lights!
