Layla Gel Effect #12 Smooth Purple

Hi guys, happy weekend! I can't believe today is the first day of June, this year is going SO fast! Today I have a quick post for ya featuring one of the new Layla Gel Effect polishes. This one is in color #12 and it's called Smooth Purple, it's a pretty vampy wine color!

The Gel Effect polishes are supposed to mimic the look and wearability of gel manicures without having to cure the polish with a light. I haven't had a chance to wear test this yet but I really enjoy the finish and formula of the polish! This was a bit of a crelly like formula, it went on jelly like and a bit patchy on the first coat but the second coat made it opaque and gave the look of a creme. I used 2 coats for the photos below, both photos are in natural sunlight.

The Layla Gel Effect polishes are out now, you can usually find the brand on NinjaPolish and Harlow & Co but it doesn't look like either of them have these stocked as I write this post. I have found them on Zappos for $15 and Amazon for $10.50.


  1. :O I have this EXACT same colour in a polish I got at a dollar store in the States.... 12 years ago? I think the brand was Billie Cosmetics or something. It's so identical, my mind is blown.
