Next Leather Effect and Claire's Leather Look Polish
So last night my daughter came home from shopping with a present for me!! She works in Next, and saw that they had a new range of nail polish in stock. Leather Effect, price £3.00 for a 9ml bottle. The one she got me was in black, called Black Window. I was keen to try this out and also compare to the Claire's Leather Look Polish I got the other week for £1.00, also a 9ml bottle in black.
So lets get started..... Photos first :)
Next Leather Effect - Black Window
Claire's Leather Look - Black
Next Leather Effect was almost opaque after one coat. I did two and the application and coverage was good, drying time was pretty quick. Dries with some shine, a nice leather effect look for the price of this polish. The one from Claire's took three coats, and is still not as dark as the Next one. Application was good, dried a bit slower and has a more grainy, textured feel, and a different leather look. Over all though, both these polishes are nice, but I do prefer the one from Next so if you are after a cheaper Leather look polish I would recommend this one. I asked my daughter what other new polishes Next sold, and she said the Leather Effect comes in Red and Black, and they also had some Matte Glitter polish, all £3.00 each.
To compare them with each other, I got my hubby to take a pic of my thumbs :)

I hope you like this post, thanks as always for reading. What do you think of Next polish?
As I will be taking this off for my normal Saturday Nails tomorrow, I saw a photo on Facebook from the Nail It Magazine of some rainbow feather free hand nail art. It looked amazing and I thought I'd try it myself. All done with acrylic paint and a thin detail brush, and Miss Sporty Gloss Top Coat. Let me know what you think...
