Tried & Tested: LAYLA Softouch Effect Nail Polish

❂❂❂

LAYLA Cosmetics Softouch Effect Nail Polish is a new “soft textured” nail polish that lasts up to 10-15 days. This revolutionary formula is soft to the touch which makes application virtually goof-proof.

These fast-drying nail polishes do not need a top coat or base coat and come in 12 matte and shimmer colors: Marshmallow Twinkle, Golden Touch, Stone, Neon Pink, Cherry Diva, Limoncello, Fire it Up, Queen Bordeaux, Aqua Zen, Turquois Splash, Mudhattan and Noir Touch. The formula will not stain the nail and is free of toluene, camphor, formaldehyde and DBP.

Tried & Tested: Besides a shellac or minx manicure, (which I am not a fan – Read: HERE) this is the longest-lasting polish I have ever used. It dries almost like a gel and leaves a curious cushion/soft texture that instantly conceals any goofs and/or mistakes. Incredibly easy-to-apply, the polish seems to mold to the finger nail. The formula is opaque in just one coat, but perfect in two. I would not describe these polishes as matte. Most matte nail polishes are made with a powder substance, which is what gives them that slightly chalky look. LAYLA Softouch Effect contains a wax that creates more of a demi-matte finish.

A must-have for the girl painting her nails while running out of the house (me…sigh). LAYLA Softouch Effect dries almost instantly and any bumps or dings can be “massaged” back to new.

How To: Polished Ponytail

✯✯✯

Worn at the gym or gala, a ponytail is a versatile look that is both playful and elegant. My favorite look for red carpet in a couture gown, the ponytail is understated and refined.

Needed:

✒ Boar Bristle Hairbrush

✒ Hair Elastic

✒ Styling Moose

✒ Hairspray

✒ Shine Serum

How To:

✒Day-old hair transitions better into a ponytail. Start by adding a dollop of styling moose to hair for some weight and texture.

✒For sleek ponytail, run a flat iron over hair. For wave/curly style, wrap 1-inch sections around curling-wand and repeat in diferent directions.

✒Brush hair back into ponytail. Using a boar-bristle brush will help with bumps and tangles.

✒ Secure with elastic.

✒Tame fly-aways with a spritz of hairsray.

✒ For added polish, run a shine serum through ponytail.

Optional:

Hide the elastic: Pull a pencil-thick piece of hair from the bottom of the ponytail. Wrap hair around elastic. Leave 2-inces to pull down through the elastic. Secure with bobby pins.

Add hair accesories: Find a great headband or jeweled clip, or take a very thin piece of ribbon and tie a sweet bow on top or hide bow underneath, bobby pin to secure.
