This is by far the most unusual nail polish I have used in a long time. I didn’t really know what to expect when Layla described their Soft Touch Effect polishes as a matte finish polish that had a soft texture. For the life of me I couldn’t wrap my head around a nail polish having a soft texture. So to say the least I was excited to give this polish a try!
Golden Touch is a shimmery yellow gold polish that absolutely reminded me of champagne in the bottle. The formula was a bit thin but not runny. I used three coats in my swatches.
Once I applied the polish it did dry to a matte finish but it wasn’t flat. The base of the polish was matte but the shimmer was still reflective.
After the polish had dried I quickly became fascinated with the texture. I’m not even sure how to describe it. The polish had sort of a felt feel to it. It definitely felt soft. Which is not a word I thought I’d ever use to describe nail polish!
While I really liked this polish and I’m definitely going to try other Soft Touch Effect polishes from Layla unfortunately this particular color isn’t the best for my skintone.
I was curious to know what this polish would look like with a top coat so that is below the jump.
A note: Layla claims despite this being a matte polish it will wear for 10-15 days. Considering my experience with other matte polish I was, to say the least, skeptical. I wore Golden Touch for several days without any chipping which is amazing considering I can’t get through 24 hours without a major chip with most matte polishes, but I can’t speak to whether this polish would last upwards of 15 days.
