I was a bit put off this one, in all honesty. I am not a lover of shimmery, frosty or pearlised nail polishes. In my opinion they are very dated and quite frankly, remind me of old ladies (you know, those pale pinky frosty polishes...? Shudder.)
I prefer a good solid creme formula, and in my hastiness that is what I thought Glamour Puss would be. Lured in by the name, I bought this because I thought this it was a hot pink creme...in fact, it is almost a jelly formula with blue/lilac shimmer running right through it. Lots of it. Nice if that's your thing, but it left me cold.
These cool tones do nothing for my skintone.
I am currently trying to work my way through all of my unused polishes with the aim of streamlining my ridiculously large (and mostly unused) collection, so I put Glamour Puss to the test.
As I have found with every Leighton Denny polish, the formula is outstanding. I think Leighton Denny polishes are really under rated - the formula and brush are far better than leading competitors but for some reason, I hear very little about the range.
Given that the formula of this particular polish was more of a sheer-ish jelly formula, it was opaque in three coats. The shimmer running through the polish is more evident in the bottle, but still very much detectable, more so in strong sunlight and under halogen lights.
Overall, it translated on the nail as a high gloss finish, rather than an obvious shimmer.
Although this colour does nothing for me and the shimmer is a no-go, this is another great polish from Leighton Denny, consistent with every other of his polishes I have tried (believe me, there are a fair few in my collection)
How do you feel about shimmery, frosty or pearlised polishes?
