Currently On my Fingertips- Leighton Denny Shipwrecked

 I hope you are all well and having a great week. I must say my week didn't get off to a great start as I lost my memory card with all the photos I had spend hours and hours taking for my blog. This does mean I might not be as active as I would like to be over the next few days as I don't have many photos to talk about and will have to retake them all.

I thought I would share the nail polish I have been wearing over the last few days and which I am pretty much in LOVE with. I chose Leighton Denny's shipwrecked from their S/S collection and the manicurist actually said that it was the one colour no one ever chooses, she also thought I would get bored of it pretty quickly. Boy was she wrong, almost a week later and my love is still going strong but it is looking a little worse for wear so I will have to remove it this evening.
 As you can see the whole of the Spring Summer 2012 collection (above) is pretty impressive and there's not a single colour I wouldn't love to have in my collection but Shipwrecked is the stand out colour! I don't actually own this polish and it was simply applied at an event but although it is a pretty pricey polish I am considering spending over £10 on it. It did need two coats but the end result it pretty good. The colour however is very hard to describe, they say it is a pistachio green which it probably is but its almost a neon/pastel colour and although I know this statement is pretty contradictory I can't describe in in any other way.

Let's let the photo do the talking after all it worth a thousand words right?...
What do you think of this colour? Do you know any comparable colours I could purchase instead of this one?

  3. Def looks yellow, almost neon in the photo. Barry M do a neon yellow here

    But then if you kind of look very closely you can see a titch of a green undertone, correct me if I am wrong?

  6. I am a huge Leighton Denny fan. I own all of the Summer colours and they are beautiful. This on is definitely a pastel yellow toned green. Pistachio is a great way to describe it.

  12. I have this and the closest dupe I have in my collection for it is Barry M's Lime Green. It's a bit darker and I prefer Shipwrecked, but if you don't mind it not being exactly the same then Lime Green is pretty good!

    I used Shipwrecked in a NOTD if you'd like to take a look :)
