With the rugby on downstairs, husband, brother-in-law and baby are kept busy, so I've got my hands free and I'm trying out the latest nail launch from Leighton Denny, the I Am Goddess Collection.
I don't have oodles of time to swatch each shade for you, as much as I would like to, but I have currently got each finger painted one of the new 7 colours so I can give my option on these duo-chrome and glitter effect polishes.
My favourite of the shades is Venus Desire (bottom middle of the main shot, which is a deep brown shade with rose-gold shimmer, whereas Aphrodite (top middle) in a similar ilk have a olive base with purple shimmer, both looking elegantly luxe, perfect for an autumnal nail.
The two other shimmer shades are Athena Divine (blue-pink with purple shimmer) and Tell Me Arora (clear polish with a mixture of golden and holographic sparkles of different sizes) will be fabulous for the party season.
I am less of a fan of the metallic shades Radiant Rhea (red) Calypso Kiss (fuchsia) which compared to the glitter shades, just aren't as exciting. I do, however, like Queen Hera, which is a metallic, chrome nude.
The polishes all applied really well, with only one or two coats needed to give excellent coverage and they dried really quickly too. I was also super impressed with how easily the shimmer shades came off, as normally I am scrubbiest away for ages trying to remove glitter polishes!
Each polish his £11 and available from M&S, John Lewis, Fenwicks, Look Fantastic and other stockists.
