I’ve got a photo heavy post today but with some absolute beauties to show you. Leanne from Polished By Leanne is releasing a new collection, the Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal collection and this one is made up of 8 polishes, 4 of which I have to show you today! Lets jump right in a take a look at them!
Confidence is a beautiful royal blue, neon jelly with silver glitter and a micro holo sparkle.
This is three coats topped with one coat of Seche. It builds really nicely without being too thick, dries quickly on each coat and to a glossy finish.
Glamour is a really beauitful, clear jelly polish packed with silver holo flakies, silver holo bar glitters and holo micro glitter.
This is two coats with one coat of Seche. Glamour builds really nicely and you could get a decent full coverage in 3 coats, without the polish being too thick. But it will also work beautifully as a topper and now I am slapping myself for not showing this polish over a plain colour. This one also dries really quickly and to a glossy finish but the Seche is needed purely because of the flakie glitters, little sticky-up buggers, but they’re so pretty.
Elegance is a black jelly with silver and holo micro glitter.
This is three coats with one coat of Seche. It builds really nicely, again without being too thick. It dries quickly and too a beautiful glossy finish. This one would be great for a galaxy mani base or a lacey mani.
Hope is my favourite one of the bunch and annoyingly, the one I captured the least accurately. It is a gorgeous, highlighter green, neon jelly with silver glitter, holo bar glitter and the odd black micro glitter.
This is three coats with one coat of Seche. Like the others, this builds nicely and not too thickly. It dried quickly and glossy too.
These polishes would be great for the jelly sandwich mani, (is that even still a thing?) especially Confidence and Hope.
This collection is due to release around the end of May/ beginning of June but you can follow the shop’s Instagram page for a solid release date. 20% of all sales of this collection will go to the Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal. That’s £1 from each bottle sold! So you’ll get pretties and you’ll be giving money to a great cause! You can pop over here to see what the cause is about and how your purchase will be helping them.
If you want to see some gorgeous swatches of the other polishes in this collection, you can pop over to Laurena’s Instagram and to Jen’s Instagram, plus give them a cheeky follow if you aren’t already doing so, it’s gorgeous nails, all the time.
I did some nail art using all the polishes and tried to keep with the theme. I just can’t help it, when I see a black holo polish I just think galaxy nails. So I painted a kite from the LCHA logo and added in the white stars similar to across their banner. I kind of like it but…
Anywhoo, don’t forget to check out Leanne’s blog and pages too, all of the info for which you can find below and go grab some feel good purchases when the collection releases.
