Following on from my recent post about Leighton Denny I’ve been trying out a few of their gorgeous polishes from the new Tribal Fever Summer Collection.

One product I love is the Bio-Build shield (RRP £12). It’s a sheer pinky-white treatment varnish to build up your nail strength. The reason I like it so much is firstly because it’s how you want your nails to look: healthy and buffed with a pink glow. However because the gloss on it is relatively low, chips are invisible making it the ideal low-maintenance, everyday nail polish. I’ve got a few other products of this ilk and the gloss on them means that they of course have visible chips within a few days. The Bio-build is easy, good looking nails every day, and certainly joining my beauty bag.

Onto the colours, and the summer collection of Tribal Fever (RRP £12 each) features colours that are wild, clashing and intense. Great for summer toes:

Desert Rain  – Rich and royal, electric cobalt blue – find it here

These two would be best on toes but unfortunately I’d run out of toes after the cobalt adventure. The turquoise is a perfect summer toe colour – I had my toes painted a similar shade most of last summer. The mustard lime was the only varnish that applied a little streaky, looking like it would need three coats to look its best.

A couple of the collection were best for hands:

Tribal Dance  – Rich and bright, pinky coral-red. Find it here

I’ll admit that I’ve largely moved on to gel nail varnishes since they last so much better, but these held up surprisingly well, lasting 5 days with minimal chipping. No gel, but the best of the non gels I’ve tried.
