Leighton Denny “Femme Fatale”

“Femme Fatale” is another polish from my much loved Dramatic Collection by Leighton Denny.

Described on Leighton’s Signature Site as “a rich, mossy eye-catching green, infused with the rich jewel tones – its decadent, ravishing and drop-dead gorgeous.”

Here I’ve applied two thin coats of the colour along with Leighton Denny’s Undercover base coat and Crystal Finish top coat.

This was another colour that I just had to have as soon as I saw it and it does not disappoint.  The finish is extremely glossy.   To me, this is the most perfect shade of green ever!  Add to that the amazing Leighton Denny formula and this is probably one of my favourite polishes of the year.


OPI “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”

This is my second polish from the Skyfall Collection by OPI.

“On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” is described as a misty green pewter colour.  If you remember, I wasn’t very impressed with my last polish from this collection “Casino Royale” but I’m going to have to eat my words now lol.  I really like this colour.  It’s a beautiful shade of pewter with a hint of a very classy green, only visible in certain lighting conditions.  The consistency is a little thin and I had to apply three coats to get a decent coverage but it dried quite fast so that’s not a big problem.  I’ve used it here with Essie First Base and Essie Good To Go base and top coats.“On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” definitely gets a thumbs up from me, it’s one of my favourite metallic colours ever!

Leighton Denny “Temptress”

“Temptress” is another stunner from the aptly named Dramatic Collection from Leighton Denny for Autumn/Winter 2012.

As you can see, this polish would not be out of place in my much loved Nail Inc Sprinkles range.  That made it an absolute “must have” for me lol.

Described on Leighton’s Signature Site as “a seductive twist on the classic rouge noir – a vampish, irresistible dark brown with added show-stopping tones of cerise and ruby glitter.”  A very good description, I would say.

Here I’ve used two coats of “Temptress” along with Leighton Denny’s Undercover base coat and Crystal Finish top coat.  As with the Sprinkles range, this polish has a glossy,  creme base that’s infused with tiny glitter particles.  This makes the finish both smooth and easy to remove.

I think that this latest collection from Leighton Denny is by far my favourite of the season.  The colours and finishes are just perfect for my winter wardrobe and I can’t wait to try more 😀

Nails Inc “Disco Lane”

Disco Lane is a black holographic polish.  It’s not a glitter polish.  It’s a black creme infused with micro holographic particles.  This is just a perfect match for all the black/silver fashion that is in the shops this season.

As always, I’ve used two coats of the colour along with Nails Inc Kensingtion Caviar base and top coats.

I applied Disco Lane last week.  I found it to be extremely durable, it withstood everything I threw at it and had very little sign of wear after four days.

There have been a lot of polishes similar to this released recently but with Nails Inc formula Disco Lane definitely stands out from the crowd.  I’m not sure if this is exclusive to QVC UK as I can’t find it anywhere else.

Leighton Denny “Starlet”

“Starlet” is another amazing polish from the Leighton Denny Dramatic Collection A/W 2012.

Described on Leighton’s Signature Site as “a subtle antique gold with a touch of sparkle thats playful, sexy and seductive.”

This is one of those polishes that is exactly what you see in the botte.  It applies beautifully.  Here I’ve used two thin coats along with Leighton Denny Undercover base coat and Crystal Finish top coat. It dried extremely fast and was good to go in record time.

I wasn’t quite sure if this polish was “me” until I tried it and now I love it.  It is elegant and showstopping whilst not being at all garish – just perfect! 😀
