Layla Magneffect Golden Nugget with Ludurana Flash

This is what I have on my nails right now. It's just a fun little layering experiment I did using the Layla Magneffect polish I posted earlier today. 'Flakie' polish over magnetic! I like how it turned out, even though the flakes are subtle:


One coat of Ludurana Flash flaky topcoat over two coats of Layla Magneffect in Golden Nugget. I think the red/green/gold color of the flakes accent the greenish-greyish color of Golden Nugget nicely. Next time I'll use a different flaky polish to give it a little more oomph, as the Ludurana flakes are very sparse.

The Ludurana Flocado topcoat is from Llarowe, I'll do an real review of it soon. For now, I just wanted to show you what I'm wearing on my nails :)

  1. Interesting--I wouldn't have thought to combine the flakies with the magnetic stripes--looks very exotic!

  2. KarenD, I was curious to see if it would enhance or ruin the "3D" look of the magnetic, it turned out differently than I thought but I like it!

    rock-or-not, thank you :)

  8. I love the flakies of Ludurana. I think too sparse the flakies, but looks good with two coats.

  10. Hiya Scrangie.
    I just stumbled over one of your pretty pictures on a website selling nail polish - I wonder if you're aware and have allowed the company to use it. It's here: http://shop.llarowe.com/main.sc
    I just thought I wanted to let you know. :)

  12. I've two of the Ludurana flakies -- Trovao and Vento. They *are* very sparse indeed but nice. Though the swatch photos I saw in a couple of places made these shades look completely different, to my eye the results are basically identical...both are emerald green to blue. Gorgeous, but I'm giving one away to a friend and hoping somebody else comes out with more flakies that aren't dupes of that same green/gold/orange/red Nubar 2010 look.

  13. I like it though, my issue with the magnetic polish when I wear it is trying to stop it chipping!

  14. I never would've thought to put a flakie over a magnetic polish. But it looks really interesting together!
