Below is Layla 08 Flash Black. I've heard and read about using a good base coat on Holo's but I see no differance. I used a base coat of Seche Retain and two coats of Black Flash. I am in love with this polish. I did find the application a little hard to work with as it was thick and blotchy. After my first nail i figured out how to get complete opacity with one coat, but went for number two anyways. This polish looks a funky gray when first applied but about 40 seconds later you get this beautiful Holo effect. I also added a SV top coat which dimmed the Holo a bit, so I don't recommend it. However I did chip 3 nails by days end.

Hunger Games! I grabbed a few HG's polishes and was thrilled to find out this Stone Cold is a matte! It's opaque in one coat and is super pretty with a little shimmer. It reminds me of concrete. This was a BITCH to remove. I have many matte polishes and do quite a lot of nail art which means lots of layers of polish and glitters, super hard to remove. This polish stained my fingers, my nails,. it was hella funky. Now this may have just been the bottle I bought.Anyone else have trouble? BTW I used 2base coats of SV Rebuild.
