Leighton Denny 8 Piece Leighton Loves Glamour Collection


Hello all you lovely lovely people!
I've got a bit of a nail post for you today. Containing some rather delightful colours all brought to your by the king of manicures himself... MISTERRR LEIGHTONNNN DENNNYYYY (I do hope you read that in your best Xfactor/Little Britain voice over voice mind!).
Writing this post has reminded me of a few things... 

One- I'd forgotten how amazey Leighton's Angel Dust is
Two- Leighton does colour like no other
aaaaaaand
Three- I definitely need a little nail wheel thing for swatching

BUT ANYWAY
This was a QVC TSV at the beginning of the month which I had decided I NEEDED before even seeing it on screen. (ridiculous I know...)It's an 8 piece set containing four high performance nail colours, a sparkly colour and go duo, a crystal finish top coat, remove and go polish remover and some miracle drops all wrapped up in this gorgeous little bag (complete with compartments inside!!!)

I paint my nails almost daily, it's part of my evening routine whilst watching corrie or what ever reality TV treat I'm into! And I swear I could not be without my Miracle Drops- no matter how dry I 'think' my nails are before bed, I WILL get pillow print on them if I don't use them!



TWO TONE TEAL
This is a rich creamy turquoise that's shot through with the finest silver and teal particles creating a metallic finish. Its cool toned so perfect as an alternative to berry shades this season. Equally this would compliment a tan and look incredible on your tootsies.
(Must paint mine... they are shock-KING!)
 OPAQUE ELEGANCE
 As the name suggests it's an opaque finish and as I was applying it I was half tempted to get my real techniques face brush out and use it as a foundation!! Honestly I think it would be the perfect colour for my face but on my nails I'm not sure I'm feeling it. I do like a nudey neutral but this is just too cream for me... I think I'll give this another whirl in the spring/summer.
(It's probably just my corpsey hands that aren't doing this polish justice!)
Actually this would be an ideal base for nail arty creations.
PILLOW TALK
Now this colour is luciously sexy gorgeous. It's incredibly glossy and applies like a dream. It's a sheer almost juicy formula but gives full coverage with two coats (Leighton always seals the deal with the second coat). If you are wanting a berry nail then this my Leightonista's is it. I've found your one!
It makes me want to drench my lips in a matching colour get my strut on! 
(hip swinging, bum wiggling sorta strut too!)
STEEL APPEAL
A neural yet shimmering gun metal gray that is already loved and cherished by yours truly. It goes with everything and makes me feel a bit rock chick (whilst listening to and loving Katy Perry!). It actually reminds me of a posh kitchen bench but before you go and search google can I just say this is a longstanding favourite!
Gold dust and Angel Dust
 Gentle shimmering sparkling particles that are contained in the glossy topcoat. They look beautifully delicate and catch the light like little twinkling stars. The finish is smooth too so no clicking your tights on chunky flakes of glitter! (EVERY.SINGLE YEAR.)

Whats your favourite> Any recommendations for my matching Christmas party lips?

Love

  2. Lipstick equivalent of Pillow Talk? Rimmel Kate moss 107 is pretty similar. (I did a review here - http://ellaboobeauty.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/rimmel-kate-moss-107-lipstick-review.html) and the formula and finish are incredible. It's super cheap too, which I s a nice bonus!
