NAILS: Essie's 'Leading Lady'

Saturday, January 19, 2013



I recently purchased the Essie mini-winter collection; after hearing it was sold out everywhere, I couldn't resist when I saw it sitting alone on a shelf in Boots! I had been eyeing up Leading Lady and Beyond Cozy for a while but didn't want to spend the full £16 before I knew whether I liked them. I got the mini set for £10.00 but this was has to be by far my favourite, in fact I almost wish I had just bought a full size of this!

Leading Lady is a red nail polish with suspended red glitter, it looks stunning in the bottle and even better on the nails in my opinion. Here I put Barry M's 'Red Black' nail polish underneath and then 'Leading Lady' over the top. This is purely because in some other swatches I've seen of this, Leading Lady looked a little paler on the nails than in the bottom, yet I wanted the dark undertone to the bright ruby glitter. Anyway I loved the outcome and this will definitely be a combo I'll reaching for all year round; who says glitter can only be at Christmas?! I may even try pairing it with the Red and Black glitter I got from Barry M in this post, just to mix it up a bit aha:)
