Fun Friday featuring a Laser Tape Manicure with Layla Black Flash and ManGlaze Ilf!

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers!  Whew that was a long title!  As many of you saw yesterday, I just discovered the joys of striping tape for manicures!  So, I thought to myself "what would happen if I used a holographic polish as a base and covered it with a matte?"  Well, I tried it out and I LOVE it!  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!

I started with two coats of Layla Flash Black.  I love this polish!  Black linear holographic?  It's amazing!  I will try to get full swatches of it this weekend because it's seriously my favorite holo now!  Then I used the striping tape and tried out different patterns on each finger!  Then just one coat of ManGlaze ILF on top to make the laser beams!  Here are some macro shots:




I really love how this came out!  Even indoors, you can see bits of the holo peeking through!  Now here are some pictures with flash to really see more of the rainbow holographic effect!




I'm seriously in love with this!  I can't wait to try out other combinations with the striping tape!  I love the juxtaposition between the matte blue and the shiny, holo grey!  This is definitely a FUN Friday manicure!

What do you think of this manicure?  Any combinations you'd like to see with striping tape?

  6. I really need to get some of that laser tape for manis! At first look, I thought you had a crackle polish going on here. Since I am so over those before they got started, I sort of turned my nose up until I strolled through your photos and looked closer, then my typical - go back and read!
