Leighton Denny So LA - "Zeger!"


This week I chose another LD colour, So LA is a kind of raspberry colour.  The application was spot on, which is what I expect from LD polishes, much better than the Bubblegum colour of his that I wore last week, though in Bubblegum's defence the mani lasted a whole 8 days with no chipping whatsoever, I was going to leave it and see how many days I keep it chip free for but I couldn't!  I needed to change, just didn't feel right not doing my nails! Anyways, So LA ....  It went on a dream with excellent coverage with just the one coat.  Upon reflection I should have used two coats as there is still visible nail line with just one, but as I always do some kind of art I though I would be fine with just the one coat.

I then decided that lovely as the colour is I needed a little bit of bling so added one coat of China Glaze Golden Enchantment.  This makes the colour so lively, I am having a serious sparkle addiction at the moment!  In the sun, (which we still aren't seeing much of in good old UK), Golden Enchantment is soooo gorgeous, tiny sparks of all colours jumping around on my nails.  It's very distracting you know!  I have been beeped at traffic lights for not paying attention to the change of lights because I'm too busy looking at my own "lights" dancing on my nails!

Finally I decided to go with a "Zeger" print!  I am calling it Zeger as I thought I had done quite a good job of zebra stripes, showed my daughter and she said "oh it looks a bit like a cross between a zebra and a tiger", so I  went off to ask my lovely hubby what he thought of my latest creation, he also said the same so I guess I need a little more practice with the zebra stripes!  The main thing is that I like them so shall be keeping them for now!

As always I used OPI Nail Envy as my base and Seche Vite as my topcoat.

Thanks for reading, have a lovely week
