The Opulence Collection from Leighton Denny A/W 2010

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 10 - 2010

This Autumn has been quite eclectic in it’s choice for nail shades… from muted greens through to grey purples and chocolate browns, it’s certainly not been as vamp-heavy as usual.

Leighton Denny are continuing down this path with a set of colours that don’t appear to adhere to one particular focus.  For some, this is a relief… for me?  I’m just genuinely pleased to see a lovely-looking gunmetal grey put in an overdue appearance this season.

Indulgence: Classic, scarlet red will be centre stage for AW10 & this shade will suit everyone.

Prim & Proper: Bright, stark nudes compliment dark outfits. This  icy nude shade will help achieve a contemporary look.

Timeless: This sophisticated, feminine coral shade paired with subtle make-up looks will help to soften more extreme winter styles.

Captivated: Bright accent colours are perfect for brightening the winter blues. This electric shade will add drama and accessorise a look.

Embellish Me: An indulgent aubergine  to achieve a glamorous high-end finish.

Graycious: A strong, gunmetal shade is perfect for achieving sultry elegance, as well as trend-led more edgy styles.


Priced at £11 each, they’re available to buy online from

    What I don’t get about Leighton Denny is who buys/wears them? They are very rarely seen on the blogs. You can’t ever find them at a discount. So who are their customers? I am VERY puzzled by LD.

  2. Estelle says:

    I am a huge Leighton Denny fan and have lots of his polishes, but I tend to buy them on QVC in sets, otherwise they’re just too expensive. Initially looking at this collection you might think it’s a bit boring in comparison to some, but all of the shades look so wearable, real Winter staples. x

    What Jenni said.

    The colours in this collection don’t look the most exciting on earth either tbh.

  4. I always wanted to try Leighton Denny, I watch them on QVC all the time. I wish I could try one polish in a store before commit buying those sets. They look amazing, but I don’t like to buy over the net/tv things that I haven’t tried before. I love his presentations in QVC.
    I have his crystal nail file that I found in Boots the other day. Brilliant!

  5. Estelle says:

    Order from QVC, if you don’t like them you can send them back within 30 days, you just lose the p&p.x

  6. Timeless looks beautiful. I’ve never used QVC before. I’ve always wondered why they accept cosmetics back within 30days if you don’t like them. Can anyone enlighten me? lol thanks!

    I use and LOVE his nail polish. I first tried it when I went to a spa and then started buying. The colours are great and I know I can wear it for 5 days with NO chips which to me makes the price tag all worth it.
