Layla Gel Effect No. 11 - Tropical Island ♥

Press Sample

Good evening! I have one of the new Layla Gel Effects to show you tonight!

The Layla Gel Effect Collection is supposed to give you the same shiny and chip-free effect as a gel nail polish without having to use a UV lamp. This means they should be super shiny and long-lasting. It could have been a little shinier on its own (although this is easily resolved with topcoat) but it did have amazing wear. I did a wear test on myself without topcoat and on my mom (who chips her polish faster than any person on the planet) with topcoat. I wore it without topcoat for 3 days and only had minor tip wear and my mom wore it for nearly a week with topcoat, also with minor tipwear. 

Tropical Island (#11) is a turquoise shade that does remind me of a tropical island and ocean water! Application was easy and I only needed 2 coats for complete opacity. No topcoat for the photos.

  1. This is a very pretty shade! I love how vibrant the color is. And that's great about the wear!

  2. Shellac is your friend <3
    Personally, I love shellac, it is basically lasts 2-3 week. Recent I have got PolyLock™ Hybrid gel polish kit which instead of shellac at Runway Professional. I feel , it is much better for nails.
