I picked this up from Ulta only because I had a coupon burning a hole in my hand. You ever get that where you can't really find anything to buy but you want to use the coupon up. Yep happens often to me. I picked Flash Black up because I knew I didn't have anything like it.
I had issues with application with this one. I'd put down one coat on and when i tried to put another coat the brush would just drag the first coat i put on. Never really had dragging issues like that before. I had a few people tell me that you're not supposed to use a base coat with this and honestly i never tried to apply it again so perhaps that's the trick with these Laylas. I do have an Aqua base so i should have used that. I've worn so many holos in the past that I never even thought that would be an issue. The holo is strong on this, but nothing that made my jaw drop. Would I buy this again? yah I would, I enjoyed wearing it and it's an interesting color, it's not black and it's not quite grey. Not sure what this color is but it's a nice neutral to own. After a week I put on Barielle Starchild on an accent finger. It was a nice combo.
