Leighton Denny Be My Berry and Razzmatazz

Leighton Denny Be my berry is a fabulous red. It has a foil like appearance which catches the light and shines from every angle. I've teamed it with a ring finger mani of Razzmatazz which is a serious party glitter. Red and purple are the colours in it which almost wink back to give a really glamourous look to the nail, perfect for any party!

Nails inc Soho Magnetic

Nails inc Soho Magnetic is a polish with attitude. The base colour is silver grey, however this is no ordinary polish as when the magnet which is in the lid is placed over it it creates an amazing fishnet pattern on the nail.Silver, grey, charcoal and black tones contributing to the 3D design you see which is best acheived if you apply a thin coat followed by a thick coat and immediately using the magnet whilst the polish is still stopping.
