Leighton Denny Caught Red Handed is a gorgeous rich, bright, shimmery metallic red polish. It is the ideal red for Christmas nails. It applies well and is fully opaque with two coats. Dries to a high shine glossy finish. Two coats were applied to three nails and with a striping brush for the bow on the Christmas bauble design.

Leighton Denny Diamond Ice is a lovely shimmery snow white creme polish enhanced with real diamond particles. As with most white polishes the first coat applied rather streaky. Three thin coats gave opaque, streak free finish. Dries to a lovely shimmery semi matte finish. This was applied to the middle finger as a base for the Christmas bauble design.

Leighton Denny Liquid Gold is a rich gold creme polish with silver undertones. It applies well with two coats giving fully opaque coverage. Dries fast to a metallic foil effect finish. One coat was applied to the ring finger nail and also with a large dotting tool for the Christmas bauble design before applying holographic glitter.

Orly Bling has gold holographic micro glitters in a clear base. It is rather sheer making it ideal to use as a layering polish. Three coats gives a good coverage. Two coats were painted over Leighton Denny Liquid Gold on ring finger and over the Christmas Bauble. Dries to a lovely sparkly finish.

Orly Instant Artist 24K Glitter was used for the hanging cord on the bauble. The long thin application brush makes it ideal for painting fine lines.

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat smoothes the nail surface after glitter application and dries fast to a high shine finish.
