Leighton Denny - Upgrade Me

Creamy yellow sheer with pale gold flakes  






After yesterday's Leighton Denny win I think I can safely say this one is not a win, on me at least.

Upgrade Me is a sheer pale yellow with loads of pale gold flaky shimmer.  The bottle close up looks so delicate and pretty, it's just didn't translate well on the nail for me

Upgrade Me is part of the Jet Setter collection, which I have as minis, which was 4 flight themed shades.

The collection blurb describes it as a 'cool cream shimmer' - I suppose you could call it cream but to me it's pale yellow.  Which is of course partly why it looks pretty awful with my skintone.

It's also very sheer.... I've lost my notes for this swatch but I think this was at least 3 coats.

I've also seen this layered, which over the right colour, might be a better use of it's prettiness.

  1. Yeah I can see this working better over a yellow or a white maybe. It is very sheer even here with three coats :/

  2. I love pastel yellows - and I agree, layering this over white or a paler pastel yellow would be even more gorgeous!
