Pink Wednesdays: Gone Dotty!


So, after admiring many lovely nail posts from the lovely Charlie @ CharlieDBeauty, I have decided to join in with Pink Wednesdays over at http://onwednesdayswewearpink.com

For my first post, I was going to show my Ciate Jellybean mani but I've decided to save that for next week and show my new Leighton Denny instead! It is technically Coral (Its called Coral reef after all!) but hey - it looks more pink to me! :)

I applied my Collection 2000 Base coat, and then two layers of the Leighton Denny polish - it went on smoothly but took a LONG time to dry and remained tacky for ages - there also seemed to be quite a bit of bubbling! I've never had this issue with my other Leighton Denny polishes so I'm thinking the problem may be the base coat!


After, I did some "dotting" using my technic nail art kit.

Its not the best job, but I am very very new to working with nails! I liked the Ladybird effect :)

What do you think?!

    1. Thanks :)

      They're really nice, you should pick up this months Bazaar magazine, theres 3 colours to choose from and its a good way to sample one at £4.20 (magazine price) instead of the usual £11 :)

  3. Yay for pretty coral and dots, but boooooo for slow drying and bubbles. It may well be your base coat as I had the same problem with the Sally Hansen and my Essie polishes. I think sometimes they just don't get on.

    Thanks so much for the shout out again! You are fab x :-)
