Layla Ceramic Effects CE 54 Green Galaxy Swatch and Review

Hooray!  I got paid today!  This is my first paycheck in about five months so although most will go to my bills, I have a little extra to splurge.  I bought a few polishes(of course), and also went to the mall with DH and LO to take advantage of the B&BW semi-annual sale to get some candles and hand soaps.  I also stopped at Ulta and found a lemming on sale that I'll show you in this post.  Later, I met up with some friends for Korean BBQ so they could meet LO and had a great time showing her off.  Overall, it was a fantastic day!

I've tried Layla Cosmetic holos before and love their application and unique colors, but this is my first time using one of their Ceramic Effects polishes and I hope that they stay true to my previous experience.  Luckily, Green Galaxy did not disappoint me with it's stunning shade of green jelly and green multisized glitters.  I used two layer over Illamasqua Rampage, a green jelly, so that it wouldn't diminish the jelly-ness of the Layla but I think I probably could have used two coats of Green Galaxy on its own and gotten the same result because it was fairly opaque.  I had no trouble with the glitter clumping but it did dry a little rough so it benefited from a layer of Poshe topcoat.  Green Galaxy didn't really play as well as I'd like with the fast drying topcoat so you may see a little bit of shrinkage.

Greens are my favorite and I adore this color combination.  I compared this to Hare's Supernova Springs and found that the Hare's was lacking in the larger hex glitters but similar otherwise.  I adore the larger hexes in the Layla so it's enough justification to keep both(in the mind of a polishaholic of course).
