Leighton Denny Atmospheric Collection: Purely Platonic NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 20 - 2011

Leighton Denny’s Atmospheric Collection is out of this world.  There, I’ve said the line that has been plaguing me since I first saw the release for it back in the Summer.  It’s been like the elephant in the room and now I’ve shoo-ed it out the front door with a broom, I can get back to what I wanted to do… which was show you!

Purely Platonic is like molten lead on my nails.  It lacks the high shine of a silver or a chrome and it’s neither metallic nor rubberized.  It’s just… melty metal.  That makes better sense in my head than it does on paper the screen – I hope the swatch articulates itself with more clarity than I am able to.

There’s a slight river of frost running through the surface but I wouldn’t in a million years call this polish frosty.  It’s a beautifully edgy polish for Autumn/Winter and would coordinate with most outfits.

Wear was good, application even better – my only complaint is that my brush had a randomly long hair which I snipped.  I know, it’s no biggie but I like to moan about something.

Leighton Denny’s Atmospheric Collection is available to buy online priced at £11.00

  3. I think you make this sound even sexier than it looks, I like the idea that it’s not too metallic even though it’s a metal colour. Plus makes a change from all the plums and golds being flashed about (by me). Love it. x

    There is a rumour that this collection may feature in the LD TSV QVCuk 1st October – even if it isn’t in the TSV it is bound to feature on the day – here’s hoping. Thanks for this. Jan x

    I bloody love Leighton Denny polishes, they are just fantastic! I’ve never been disappointed with them so I pre ordered this entire collection before I’d even saw swatches because I just knew he would hit the nail on the head… excuse the pun lol!

    I saw Leighton Denny on a daytime TV ‘show off your house’ show and he seems like a lovely guy AND his polishes look beautiful.
