Harper's Bazaar are giving away one of three Leighton Denny polishes with the July edition of the magazine (out now). The three polishes are Supermodel, a griege, Viva la Diva, a vibrant coral red and Do me a flavour, a juicy orange. Both Supermodel and Viva la Diva are from the regular line whereas the on-trend orange, Do me a flavour is part of Leighton Denny's Gelato Collection.
I was very tempted by the griege but as I already have several nail polishes in similar colours, as well as a growing collection of oranges, I thought Viva la Diva would be a good choice.
It's an interesting colour. It's red but with a coral hint gives it a lovely summer feel. I have it on my fingers now but I have a feeling it's going to make a great pedicure colour too. The formula was nice to apply and with no sign of streakiness. My only complaint was that the brush seemed to splay a little as I ended up blobbing nail varnish on my skin, something I rarely do. It was easy enough to clean up though. It also seemed to take quite a while to dry but I didn't apply a fast drying top coat which probably would have helped.
It's well worth taking advantage of the offer, even if you don't intend to read the magazine. The Leighton Denny polishes retail for £11 and Harper's Bazaar costs £4.20. I'm actually rather enjoying the magazine, even if I am a little puzzled by the strange choice of uber heavy eye makeup on Claudia Schiffer on the front cover....
