Leighton Denny Graycious & Embellish Me Cherish Collection - 223348
Great colours but....
I am a huge fan of Leighton's colours - and am a fanatic with collecting polishes of his, OPI & Nails inc...I love that Leighton's colours are never garish and although he follows fashion colours, he isn't a slave to it either and the colours are always classy. I love purples and darks especially. The grey in this set is wonderful - both colours apply beautifully and are as perfectly pigmented as always...so why four stars? Embellish Me is not like the colour in my bottle. It comes out much darker on the nails. I was hoping to see more rich smokey purple rather than purple black. I am keeping it, but I have similar colours already...it also needed a lot of mixing in the bottle and still looked a bit streaky although I rolled the bottle between my hands many times. I still love all Leighton's polishes though and am sure it's a one-off.

love the colours and it looks fantastic when painted on the nails, lovely gloss finish and you can certainly tell the difference between using this make and other cheaper brands that i usually purchase. They did chip after a few days but I am a busy mum and the varnish stayed chip proof longer than my normal ones, so I am still giving it five stars.

Stunning i am converted!
I have watched countless prsentations by leighton denny on my tv, and admired many of the colour-ways available in the range, but when i saw this duo late one night i thought "thats it those are the colours to truely test the range on."
So i duely ordered them and waited oh sooo patiently to be able to try them out (id wrapped them for christmas as a gift for me from my son).
Far from the usual colours i would normaly go for id decided on this duo to give me a "true test" of the quality of polish and coverage of the LD range.....was it really as good as he says???.....my thinking being that these darker colours (if the polish wasnt upto scratch) would not only streak easily but also show up any flaws and look truely awful toboot!
WELL what can i say!......Not only is the colour exactly how it appears in the bottle (so many are completely diferent on the nails) but the gloss and coverage is superb!!!
I am a convert and will now have no other choice but to buy (lots) more LD products!
Thankyou leighton, you are a saint!
(Oh yes, also just treated myself to the large crystal nail file......fantastic!!!)

now I know what all the fuss is about! Wonderful deep glossy colours especially the delicious graylious. I don't do well applying nail lacquer, but this goes on really well. Thanks Leighton xx
