Warning, it may hurt your eyes to look at all the shinyness!
From L-R, Metal Chrome, Cosmo Lilac, Pink Iron, Titanium Sky, Purple Diva, Red Hot, Metal Plum and Black as Ebony
The Layla Mirror Effect file that comes with the polish.
All the Layla polishes were applied after using the special Emery board to create a super shiny base. This polish is very unforgiving and shows up every ridge and imperfection. A shiny base coat should work, but I swatched with one coat over no base.
Metal Chrome- Metallic Silver
Cosmo Lilac- Light Pink Mauve
Pink Iron - Medium Pink
Titanium Sky- Light Silver Blue
Purple Diva- Light Purple
Red Hot- Erm, Dark Mauve? (So not Red!)
Metal Plum - Metal Plummy color
Black as Ebony -Gunmetal Grey
The colors I loved- Metal Chrome, Pink Iron, Purple Diva and Metal Plum. Yes, only slight differences between some..I really liked how Silver the Metal Chrome turned out, I liked how soft the Pink Iron looked, I loved the purple as purple is always awesome and the Metal Plum I was surprised I loved but it grew on me alot and I think its awesome.
I was disappointed that the blue wasn't more blue and the Cosmo Lilac was a bit light for my liking. The black really wasn't that black, but more gunmetal, maybe another coat would have make it more pigmented. Red Hot was nice, but not really necessary considering the other colors.
Hope you liked the post, and I'll post some glitters and stamping with the Mirror Effect polishes tomorrow :)
