Alanna Renee ~ Lenny



Alanna Renee ~ Lenny
White crelly base with red and blue glitters and black circles

I got Lenny in a grab bag recently.

It’s a white crelly base and I wasn’t in the mood for applying layer after layer so I started out with a layer of a plain white crème from Savina. When that was dry I added two coats of Lenny. The glitter isn’t difficult to work with. I didn’t fish for the circles so I ended up with two of them, both on my middle finger. The drying time is slow.

Here’s two coats over white, with a layer of topcoat on top:


Hmm...


I might as well be honest: I’m not impressed. I have read reviews that say that this covers in two coats, but there’s no way that the stuff in my bottle will cover in two coats. The drying time is slow and that’s always a bit of a minus in my book. But wait. There’s more. Now -  I must admit that I do not at all like finding stuff in my grab bags that the shop also sells on special – and especially not when they’re charging me *more* for the bottle in my grab bag than they sell it for in the shop. That’s not good style in my opinion, and even though I’m a sucker for grab bags, I won’t be buying any more grab bags from this store. Finito. Bye Bye, as they say.


Number of coats: 2 over white
Drying time: A bit slow
Finish: Jelly with glitter bits
Overall impression: Meh. I don’t like the black circles in this mix of glitter
Buy again: Nope

  1. The black circles are kind of weird, it would look better without them...

  2. Oh no I hate to hear when people are upset with nail polish :( I don't at all think it is fair to pay more for something that is in a sale?!! I have to agree with A.notcopyacat too..it kind of looks misplaced :( xx

    1. I got irritated because I thought it was unfair. I'll see if I can find a better home for it - it doesn't deserve to be with an annoyed owner :D

  3. What a pity :-( Because it's so cute! Drying time long, more than 2/3 coats... that makes me say bye bye as well!

  7. Haha I also agree with the others about the black circles - kinda odd. Otherwise I'd really like it :-)

    1. I guess I could avoid the black circles next time. There aren't that many in the bottle :D

  8. I like such trio of red, white and blue, but I agree that the black circles was not a good idea for this polish
