Meteor Match - Leighton Denny

The second nail polish I was sent to try from Leighton Denny's Atmospheric collection is Meteor Match, a shimmery, very pale, sheer blue laced with a slight pinkish duochrome as well as silver glitter. I wasn't as keen on this polish, I definitely prefer Your Planet Or Mine. (My earlier review here)

This polish is still pretty, but it took four coats to achieve an opaque look, I found this polish very sheer. However, it is a good polish if you would like to paint your nails with a subtle colour, nothing too obvious, good for the office.

I found the duochrome subtle, it is barely noticeable on the nail at all, which is a shame, but I do like the soft twinkle the silver glitter particles give. The glitter within the polish felt slightly gritty once dry, but that wasn't really an issue as for this manicure I wanted to add some black crackle polish over the top anyway.

I used the black crackle polish from the Andrea Fulterton Mock Crock double ended duo, then I applied Seche Vite fast dry coat. I really like this combination, the light blue of Meteor Match with the glitter peaking through the black crackle. 

I still have some more LD polishes to try, so many polishes, so little time.
