Layla Ceramic Effects CE-52 The Butterfly Effect

Have another manicure for you guys!

This one I'm excited to share, mostly because I was excited to get my hands on the polish, and on clearance of all things!!

Layla is a brand that makes some gorgeous polish colors, and some of their more recent releases are their Ceramic Effects polishes.

These polishes are meant to have a smooth, ceramic finish as well as have beautiful colors.

CE 52 is definitely falling in these descriptions.

The Butterfly Effect (as CE 52 is also called), is a flakie in a bright purple jelly. 

In the light, the flakes flash red to orange to gold to green and just add this almost agate like look to the polish.

In the picture there is some clear VNL, but in person you can't really see that.  All you see is the flashes of color and the bright royal purple base.

The only issue with this polish, as with most flakies, is just how hard it is to remove.  You may get what looks like all the polish off, but the flakes being so thin, tend to stick around.

Nevertheless, this polish is pretty enough to put up with that haha.

What do you guys think?  Do you have any flakies or Layla's that you just love?

Hugs & Kisses & Great Polishes!

  1. I have this polish and it's just kind of blah on me. I think laying it over a creme might bring it to life.

  2. I had this polish in my hands ready to purchase and put it back because I didn't have my Ulta coupon with me at the time.
    I didn't know it was so gorgeous though! I definitely have to pick this one up.

    1. I definitely recommend it! Removal takes a little extra effort but its worth it for the look on the nail!
