Leighton Denny - Up In The Air

Grey pearly shimmer    

Oh dear, my nails inc month ended and it all went to pot...  I was mad busy at work, way behind on Christmas prep and we went to Paris for a weekend.

Unfortunately it's really not as glamorous or exciting as it sounds!  The 13 & 15 yr old stepsons wanted to go to Minecon, the Minecraft convention so it was a weekend in Disneyland Paris with thousands of, mostly teenage, gaming geeks... I did manage to escape into Paris proper for a bit of shopping though.

So here's Up In The Air from Leighton Denny

I'd call it a slightly lilac toned, warm grey pearly shimmer. The lilac tones are more visible out of sunlight (bottle pic).

Swatch is 3 coats with no topcoat.

It is slightly pearly and  brushstrokey but lovely all the same.  Reminds me a little of Zoya Harley although that is definitely a cooler, blue based grey.


  1. It's a very interesting shade of grey, and it looks good on you. I wouldn't be able to wear it :)

  2. Thanks Maria, it is pretty flattering if a little bit pearly...

  3. Classic and pretty!! I'd love to wear it! :D

    1. Thanks Jezzica, it is classic with a subtle twist!


Thanks for your comment - I appreciate all of them!
