I am really loving this new Leighton Denny nail polish collection for SS 2012 which is called Castaway.

I actually love my light complexion in winter but I’ve started using some fake tan ( I LOVE Xen Tan) recently, I guess after looking at too many summer promos 🙂
Anyway, here are the products from the collection. Unfortunately, I don’t have the GBP/EUR prices yet, so only USD so far.
