Leighton Denny Spring/Summer 2011 – The Gelato Collection

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 10 - 2011

A pretty mixture of bold brights and pretty pastels make up the new Leighton Denny Spring/Summer collection.

I was sent Berry Nice and Sundae Girl

Sundae Girl is a mod-pink with blue undertones that pops nicely against my skintone without looking stark or particularly harsh.

The formula was thick yet a little sheer, a slightly strange combination and for a perfect finish it could have done with three coats which I didn’t want to give it because of the thick formula.  Nothing worse than a nail polish that looks like it’s been applied with a trowel.

Having said that, it lasted fantastically well.. 4 solid days before starting to show signs of getting a bit tired and no chipping whatsoever.

Berry Nice is a muted fuchsia and a one-coat wonder!  The down side to only applying one coat would be the visible nail ridges but that’s easily sorted with a quality base coat.

This is a great summer shade for tips or toes and anything that delivers great, glossy creme coverage in a single coat has to be a Summer holiday essential.  Wear was average but probably pretty good considering the single coat – it needed replacing on the 3rd day.

Leighton Denny Expert Nails colours are priced at £11.00 each and available online or instore at  John Lewis & selected Selfridges stores.

Are you liking the look of any of the shades from the Leighton Denny Spring/Summer Gelato Collection?

    I actually really like the Leighton Denny polishes, and all of this new collection are catching my eye. Especially Inside Scoop – so pretty!

    Berry nice looks gorgeous on you! x

  2. Sandy says:

    I am a fan of Leighton Denny polishes also. I really like the Berry Nice and Sundae Girl!

  3. Jennifer says:

    I adore Leighton Denny’s nail polishes, I have so many of them. They wear really well, I always do two coats to get the true depth of colour. I love the texture of them that is slightly runny and never goes on right on the first coat with me but then you put the second one on and it is just perfect. They are self levelling so you never get lumpy application. I have 2 of the new colours (Lollypop and Berry Nice) and 3 on waiting list from QVC. I will probably get Do Me A Flavour too as I love orange.

  4. Jen says:

    I kinda would but for that price they just aren’t funky enough…

  5. Rae says:

    Loving Berry Nice! It’s quite unique, imo – makes me think of a really gorgeous lipstick 😉

  6. FragrantWitch says:

    Love the Berry Nice! One- coat is definitely fab for summer and for squEezing in a mani/ pedi whilst being a busy mum. Sundae girl looks fan on you as well!

  7. Cassie says:

    Do Me A Favour – name’s so sassy and the colour matches the tone. I’ll probably be trawling cheaper makeup aisles for a coral nail colour dupe as it’s a colour I want to rock when the sun decides to grace us with her sunny prescence in June/July.

    Btw Charlotte, any idea when you’re doing the daily prize draw results? I’m itching to find out how lucky I was!

    I love these! I saw them on QVC last week when Leighton was on and fell in love with Lolly Pop! x

  9. Louise says:

    I love Leighton Denny’s products!! His S/S11 collection is wonderful! I’ve got all apart from Do me a Flavour which i’ll be getting at some point. His colours are amazing and last for ages. I can’t find a favourite in this collection they are all superb!

  10. Rachel Neill says:

    I actually don’t like Leighton Denny varnish. As you say, it needs 3 coats to look good but then thats too thick and frankly I can’t be bothered to paint 30 nails! I bought a set from QVC a few months back but would not purchase again.

  11. redtiger21 says:

    I want Lolly Pop!!

  12. em x says:

    a bit plain for me, dont look anything special or different but i’ve not tried/seen them in real life so might be pleasantly pleased if i gave them a try.
