Midweek Manicure // Leighton Denny #BLFW Polishes

September 17, 2014

Last week I blogged about meeting the team from Leighton Denny at Bloggers Fashion Week who kindly gave me 6 of their nail polishes* to try out – thanks guys! I thought I’d swatch them all for you to see as this week’s Midweek Manicure post.


Before I get onto the actual polishes, can we just take a second to admire the packaging?! I LOVE the solid rectangle shape and the cool plastic cap on the lid. They look really modern and space age, and really show off the colour of the polish inside.


Now onto the important bit….


My first three colors are from the Leighton Denny Classic range.


Plush Pink

Now I know I always say I’m not really a pink polish person, but look at how gorgeous this one is! It’s a really lovely bright pink with deep, warm undertones which I think would flatter any skin tone. It has a lovely creamy finish and applies like a dream.


How stunning will this mushroom colour be for Autumn? Like Plush Pink it has lovely warm undertones and a creme finish.


What a fab name for this deep red! Although it needed a couple of strong coats, it gives a great bold colour.

My other three colours are from the International S/S 14 collection which are meant to reflect and celebrate the “fun and energy of travel, different communities and unique customs”.


Reach for the Sky

Well this certainly reminds me of travel! It’s a fab sky blue colour with a subtle purple / blue shimmer running through it. The finish is slightly metallic looking and would look lovely on darker skin tones.

Mirage or Not

Mirage or Not is like the lighter cousin of Supermodel. It’s a very chic light camel colour and would be a lovely sophisticated choice for work.

Bon Voyage

Saving the best till last – Bon Voyage is my favourite of all my new Leighton Denny polishes! It’s such a gorgeous bright orangey coral colour, it reminds me a little bit of my summer favourite Beach Bag by Models Own, just not neon. I think it’s perfect for the International collection and I’m dreaming of next summer when I can properly do it justice. It will definitely be brightening up my Autumn / Winter in the meantime.

I’m so impressed with my first experience of Leighton Denny nail polishes. I think they’re fantastic quality and such good value – £11 for the big 12ml bottles – bargain! I’m so glad I got to meet the team as part of my time being a VIB at Bloggers Fashion Week, and can’t wait to try more of their pretty polishes in the future.

Have you tried Leighton Denny polishes before? Which one of these 6 is your favourite?
