Hello my lacquered lovelies. Happy Monday!
So to brighten up your Monday I am here with this week's Pick A Polish. This week I will be showing you Leighton Denny - Forbidden Territory. This is another polish I have never used, I'm not sure why I bought it really as it's really not a colour I would normally wear.
To see what I came up with read on after the jump.
Forbidden Territory is a deep reddish brown shimmery polish. I actually liked this colour on the nail a lot more than I thought I would, I think it works quite well with my skin tone which I didn't expect. I had no issues with the formula, it was opaque in two easy coats. This is without topcoat, it dries to a lovely high shine.
Now for my nail art :).
I was really struggling with what to do for my nail art, but when my Mum saw this colour she said it reminded her of chocolate.. so I decided to try and create a mini chocolate accent nail.
I freehanded the whole design. For the chocolate I used China Glaze - Ingrid, Models Own - Nude Beige and Forbidden Territory (obviously).
For the wrapper I used OPI - Vant To Bite My Neck?, Models Own - Lilac Sheen and an unnamed W7 Silver.
I wasn't completely satisfied with these, I'm not sure it looks exactly like a bar of chocolate. I'm not sure I picked the easiest design to try! I was surprised how much I liked this polish, I really didn't expect to like the colour at all.
Let me know what you think in the comments.
Thanks for looking.
