NOTD | Deborah Lippmann Don’t Tell Your Mama + Layla Flash Black

Here’s Layla Hologram Effect Nail Polish in Flash Black layered over Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Don’t Tell Your Mama.

The Deborah Lippmann polish is a smoky teal whose blue-green shimmer can only be discerned up close. On its own, it looks mostly black. It’s a pigmented lacquer – there’s only one coat in the pic above – and I really like its shine.

The highlight of this look is the holographic Layla, whose multi-coloured shimmer infused in a grey base reminds me of OPI My Private Jet. It’s more intense and reflective than the latter, the crushed-rainbow medley glimmering fabulously in bright light. Otherwise, it looks like a lush suede polish…still nice but it really comes to life when there’s strong lighting; the holo-effect much more evident.

I love greys and I love multi-coloured shimmer, so this is perfect for me! Special thanks to Evonne for helping me to custom purchase the Layla. :)
