Hello lovelies!

I've had the opportunity to try Layla polishes for the first time. Today I have here 10 Magneffect shades. There is 24 (!) Magneffect shades in total which is a huge colour range! I already found some shades that I really like!

Layla is an Italian cosmetic beauty brand that produces everything from eyeshadows to nail polishes. Some of the other nail polish lines that really deserve a mention are the Mirror Effect and Hologram effect lines. They are just so pretty! But back to the Magneffect line - all polishes come with a magnet in the cap. The magnet is a straight line so if you will want waves, fishnet or star you'll need to buy Barry M, Nails Inc. or China Glaze polishes/magnets which you can use on these polishes too.

24 Starry Night - charcoal black and grey shades with gold glitter. This is one of my favourites, it looked so good! No topcoat.

03 Blue Grey Flow - grey shades with blue undertones. The blue is not that strong in the grey as you can see.

04 Turquoise Wave - dark teal shades. Now this is another awesome shade! It's rich deep teal colour that changes from light teal to the darkest.

23 Chocolatte Mousse - cool-toned brown. This shade is quite dark with lighter areas where the magnets has been.

All Magneffect polishes had a very good and easy to work with formula. The pigmentation was high as with magnetic polishes you should use only one coat anyway. I liked the brush as well, it was wide enough and the bristles were good.
I think I would like to see more than one magnet pattern otherwise I really like the polishes. There are some pretty amazing and unique shades.

Hello lovelies!

I have here three shades from the new China Glaze On Safari collection for Fall 2012. The whole collection consists of ten creme/shimmery shades and two glitters.

I got the opportunity to review Call of the Wild, Elephant Walk and Man Hunt. Enjoy the pictures :)

Call of the Wild - dark chocolate brown creme. It's a really rich and glossy shade of brown that has great formula. It applied very nicely and easily and the pigmentation was really good. I'm wearing two coats and it was enough for a perfect coverage. Polish dried quite fast.

Elephant Walk - cool graphite grey with slate green undertones and subtle silver shimmer. It's quite unusual grey, it's leaning towards green a bit and it has this very subtle silver finish. This polish has an amazing pigmentation! It's almost one-coater but I still applied second coat to achieve the perfect coverage. It also applied very nicely and dried fast.

Man Hunt - rich cobalt blue creme. I really like this colour, it's bold, it's glossy and it looks a bit jelly-ish. I'm wearing two coats that were fully opaque, it applied very easily and the polish dried fast. This shade is my favourite out of these three polishes and I'm pretty sure it will have it's place amonst my fav blue polishes.

Overall, the polishes have excellent formula making them fully opaque in two coats. I can imagine that the rest of the collection will great as well. All applied very easily, the polish leved itself out nicely and dried fast. I must get more colours!

What do you think of On Safari collection?
