Monochrome Manicure with Leighton Denny

This little set is an absolute bargain, especially for those who are looking for the perfect white nail polish or simply want to try the monochrome trend. For only £14.00 you get two full size Leighton Denny nail polishes - Pure Creation and Maneater - saving £8.00 in total. Pretty good deal in my opinion. The duo is my first experience with Leighton Denny  nail polishes and I must admit - I am really impressed. 

The formula is a dream to apply and with two thin coats I can achieve a perfect, smooth finish. I was worried that Pure White will be a bit messy and hard to work with, but I was able to get the desired look without any problems and in only two coats. I can already tell, that there will be no chipping for a couple of days with these, which is amazing in my case (weak nails that chip the same day).

My original plan for the manicure was a pinstripe design, but after painting just one stripe on my nail, I knew that it will be really hard to do, especially on my right hand . After messing up my left hand, I decided to paint my nails white and add one thin stripe of black in the middle :) The final effect isn't perfect, but I really like it. The next design I am planning to try is a domino manicure. It looks amazing! The possibilities with monochrome manicures are endless!

You can buy the Leighton Denny Duo exclusively from The Urban Retreat Beautique.

The ring* I am wearing is from It is  9ct yellow gold, but it looks more silver to me. I am not sure why. You can find the one I picked here. It features cubic zirconia stones and I am currently wearing it instead of my wedding ring - as it is still too small :'( I miss having tiny fingers...
