I picked out a couple of shades to try from the upcoming Leighton Denny Nail range and chose Ice To Meet You in what looked like a pearly cream colour and Lolly Pop, a vibrant pink with a drop of coral. First off, it is a very, very long time since I’ve used any Leighton colours and it was good to have a reminder. But, my first paint was Ice To Meet You and I cannot remember liking a colour less in ages. It’s a pearlised shade with far too much yellow to be kind to any skin tone and it also seems to have a kick of grey in it somewhere. My nails looked vile.
But then, not being able to stand even a full 24 hours in this curdled Tippex shade, I swapped for Lolly Pop – and it’s instant love! So vibrant, lively and flattering and makes my nails stand out – it looks glossy, chic and beautifully bright.
Other shades in the range include a wow orange, Do Me A Favour, Berry Nice, a juicy raspberry, Inside Scoop, an icy mint shade and Sunday Girl, a lush lilac. So how did the horrid Ice To Meet You get in there? No idea..but a little quality control wouldn’t go amiss.
