Layla Ceramic Effect 39 & Caviar Effect 04

Hi guys! Today I have a quick post for you of a couple Layla polishes! Layla recently put out a ton of what they are calling Caviar Effects which are small microbeads that you sprinkle onto your nail while your polishes is wet. Definitely not a new concept anymore but I still like it, I like all the textures haha!

I used Caviar Effect 04 (Ballet) as an accent nail with Layla Ceramic Effect 39 (Southern Lights). Caviar Effect 04 is very light pink microbeads. The beads last for about a day for me depending on what I'm doing, I don't seal them with top coat (sometimes it can cause the color to bleed so I don't chance it). If you want to see how I apply these I did a tutorial a while back that you can find here. For the non-caviar nails I used Layla Ceramic Effect 39 which is a blue/grey/black shimmer. It's got a tiny bit of a duochrome to it but it was impossible to catch with my camera. The formula was nice, a little thick but easy to apply. It did go on a bit brush strokey but I didn't really mind since it was pretty minor. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

While I do like the Caviar Effects beads they are not something I'd buy, they are pretty expensive ($11.50 at Ninja Polish) and the bottle doesn't hold a whole heck of a lot of them. It just doesn't seem worth the price since you can get the same kind of beads at the craft store for significantly cheaper. I do like the Ceramic Effect polish though, all of the polishes I've tried from that line have been great!

Layla's Ceramic Effect and Caviar Effect polishes can be found online at Ninja Polish, the price ranges from $9.95 to $11.50.

  1. I love this technique! :) So pretty! :)

  2. Very nice. How long does that manicure last before beads start falling off. I imagine you would do it just for a night out.

  3. I appreciate your honest opinion with these... and no, it doesn't seem like a good deal considering these can be bought for at least 10$ less at a craft store! Great Swatches!

  4. I like it but i would have done it up an pink colour.

  5. I like the contrast of dark and light :)

  6. Looks divine. I love this Layla. Pale pink looks great with this shade of steel grey.

  7. So pretty!!
