NOTD: A England Avalon with Layla Hologram Effect Nail Polish in Ultra Violet

Today I bring you a purple-tastic NOTD featuring two pretties I recently acquired.

A England Avalon is a gorgeous rich purple with bluish tones. When I first applied it to my nails I was like “Eh, this looks like a regular boring purple”. Then it dried down and I went “WHOA MAMA!”

There is a velvety lushness to it that amps up the prettiness and vibrancy of the color.

Layla Hologram Effect Nail Polish in Ultra Violet is a lavender holo. This is pretty, but the holo looks best in direct sunlight. It kinda underwhelmed me, especially since I have tried more striking holos.

I will do a proper swatch post for Ultra Violet in the near future.

What did you all wear on your nails today?
