Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Week: Layla Retro Pink

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, myself and several other bloggers will be posting all pink manicures every day this coming week. Each post will also feature a fact about breast cancer. You can click on the fact and it will take you to a website where you can learn more, if you wish.

To kick things off today, I'll be showing you Layla Retro Pink, a light pink linear holo from Layla's Hologram Effect line. I'd been waiting to snag some of the Hologram Effects on sale but was bummed when I missed out. Luckily my friend Alya was kind enough to give Retro Pink to me! :) This was my first experience with Layla's holographic polishes and the holographic effect is pretty intense, just the way I like it! Things have changed since Color Club came out with their Halo Hues, but for a while, I think Layla really had the edge on the mainstream market with how vibrant the holo is on the Hologram Effects!

I find most holos apply best without a basecoat, so I skipped one for this mani. I didn't use a topcoat either, as I didn't want to diminish the intensity of the holo at all. So what you see here is just Retro Pink! It applied smoothly, with no streaking or dragging. This is three coats, although one or two nails took four to cover up a stray patch here and there.


  1. Ohhh why didn't I pick the pink one?!!! Beautiful!

    1. Thanks Anne! I remember really wanting the silver and black holos from this collection, but this one definitely turned out to be a hidden gem!

  2. This one is beautiful! I love the look of Layla holos!
