I originally bought a set of Leighton Denny's Top 5 sellers from QVC back in 2011, but I sold this one on straight away as it wasn't my colour. Best Seller is red, and back then I absolutely didn't do red!
Well, almost 3 years have passed, and last month Best Seller was one of the "freebies" in Harpers Bazaar. A friend in one of my facebook groups was wearing this and I thought how lovely it looked, and wished I hadn't sold it. I stopped by W H Smiths in my local town on the off chance and found 1 copy of the mag, and it was the right one, so I snapped it up.
I wasn't sure when I was actually going to wear it but I didn't have a mani planned for yesterday so I asked my husband what colour I should wear. "Red" he said straight away, and there was Best Seller sitting in the untried pile so that's what I put on.
My first thought as it hit the nail- this is not red! I actually think this is a very dark pink, a real deep raspberry shade, and if I was going to wear something in the red spectrum it would certainly be on this side of red.
This painted on nicely in 2 coats, and dried quickly. It has a very pretty shimmer and is packed with tiny pinky/red sparkling glitter. I actually think I may have 3 or 4 other quite similar polishes (but not the same of course!) and when I get the chance I'll do a quick comparison.
I really wouldn't call this red, hubby thinks it is, so he is happy, but I still see pink! and I happened to be wearing a cerise pink top yesterday, I think they go great together. It does look a little more red in these pictures, but either way, its a lovely intense colour, I can see why it is in LD's top 5 and I am very happy to have it back in my collection.
