Layla Gel Effect No. 05 Coral Red

Press Sample 
*This product is Cruelty Free 

Tonight I have one of the Layla Gel Effect polishes to show you - 05 Coral Red.

Their Gel Effect line is meant to provide similar results to a gel manicure without the UV lamp. Which means it should stay shiny and "chipless" for quite some time. Because generally I change polish daily I had to make a concerted effort to wear test this one but thankfully it is pretty and bright, so I was able to resist the urge to change my manicure for 4 whole days! And truthfully, it could have gone longer. I only had slight tip wear and no chips at all after 4 days. Pretty sure it would have made it to at least 7 days if I could have. Also, I have slight ridges and it filled them without a base coat. (I rarely wear a base coat, which is probably a big no-no.)

The application and formula were both great and I had no issues at all. I did wrap the tips and use one coat of Poshe since I knew I'd be wearing it for more than a day. It went on like a crelly but was opaque in two coats. The bright coral-leaning red color really pops.

Removal was the same as any regular nail polish.
