Review: Leighton Denny – Miracle Mist Speed Drying Spray For Nail Polish


I’ve had Leighton Denny’s Miracle Mist Speed Drying Spray lying around for a while now and I have only recently given it a proper try. I already own a few Leighton Denny nail polishes and I do like them a lot so I was hoping that I would like the Miracle Mist just as much as the nail polish and it would actually work as there is nothing more that I hate than waiting around waiting for polish to dry. I’m a clumsy girl and I smudge my polish every single time that I paint my nails which means I always have to re-paint them, so a spray that dries nail polish instantly seriously appealed me.

First Impressions

The Miracle Mist Speed Drying Spray comes in a silver, metallic 75 ml aerosol bottle and it features black writing and also has a black lid. The packaging is simple yet attractive and the bottle is lightweight and handbag-friendly. Leighton Denny, a British nail-care brand says the spray is the ultimate polish-drying spray and after spraying the mist onto freshly painted nails it will dry nail polish within seconds. It’s also perfect for giving natural nails and cuticles a moisturising Vitamin E boost and it has a fresh pleasant scent too.

How To Use The Miracle Mist?

It’s really simple and easy to use – after applying nail polish and top coat allow a minute setting time before lightly spraying nails with the mist from 20 cm away for super quick touch dry nails.

Thoughts:

So, I put the Miracle Mist to the test and tried it out on my natural nails and my false nails. At first I painted my natural nails with one coat of O.P.I. polish – I sprayed the mist onto my nails straight away and skipped the ‘one minute setting time’.  I dabbed the polish after a few seconds and it definitely wasn’t dry and was left smudged. I tried it again  and this time round I followed the instructions and waited for a minute before spraying the mist again onto my nails and dabbing again to see if my polish smudges. I can happily say that the polish didn’t smudge and was completely dry. It’s always better to follow instructions isn’t it. Next I tried the mist on my false stiletto nails and waited for a minute after painted my nails to spray the mist. When I dabbed the false nails with my finger tip it was still half dry and the polish smudged a bit. I think the Miracle Mist works best on natural nails rather than artificial ones and I’m guessing you would need to allow a longer setting time before spraying the mist. So, it does work on natural nails when you follow the instructions but it doesn’t work as good on false nails.

I like how it has worked on my natural nails and dried my polish after waiting for a minute to allow the polish to ‘set’ and it does give the nail a gorgeous little shine too and it’s always good to have shiny, glossy nails. Like I mentioned above, it has a nice, pleasant scent but it contains artificial parfum in the ingredients list and because I have sensitivity to some artificial fragrances the spray caused me to have a banging headache, so if your like me and get headaches off sprays and perfumes, then I’d avoid this product like the plague. To be completely honest, I wouldn’t recommend the Miracle Mist and I’d rather wait a minute or two longer than fork out £12 for something that doesn’t work as well as it says it will. I will definitely not be repurchasing the Miracle Mist and in future I’ll try to be more careful and patient when waiting for my nail polish to dry.
