I promised a Leighton Denny giveaway and here it is! You can win a signed copy of Leighton’s new book that he signed during a recent meet and greet, along with one of my favourites from the new Hollywood collection, a purple glitter that covers in two coats ‘My Name In Lights’. I am totally kicking myself for not getting myself a signed book too as I’ve had a sneaky read of the first two pages and it looks like a great read! There’s also a Leighton Denny nail buffer from his extensive nail care range. It’s a pretty standard Rafflecopter entry, so go for your lives!
I did ask for some Autumn Gelly shades back in spring and granted, I’m probably not the reason behind this release (as much as I’d love to be) but he’s gone and done it again. I’m so pleased to see some strong colours in the Gelly range after the lighter Summer tones. If I sorted my stash into light versus dark colours I suspect there would be about a 30:70 percent split in favour of dark colours. This could be partly down to my laziness and dark colours being more likely to provide one coat coverage, but I think it’s more down to just feeling far more comfortable when my nails have a strong contrast with my pastey skin. Anyway, enough waffle from me, onto the polishes…
Cruelty free, vegan friendly and 5-free, HJ Manicure polishes are a generous 15ml of classic colours and are a new UK brand. There’s quite a nice array of colours to choose from considering the current line up consists of only 16 polishes, and I chose ‘Sub Zero’ and ‘Blue Lagoon’, two cremes.
Lately it seems that every nail event happens to be while I’m overseas, or just landing, or just on my way to the airport. Thankfully Jarrolds (independent department store here in Norwich) event with Leighton Denny was just down the road from my office, so I went along on Tuesday night, and thought I’d let you know a bit about the night.
