Leighton Denny has been in the nail industry for over 20 years winning many awards so when he brought his own brand out just over 12 years ago, it was one that was highly coveted by those in the know. Available from selected salons, spas and high street store M&S, it’s accessible to all or of course you can just order online.
With four base coats in the range I was happy to try one out as being a regular wearer of nail polish everyday it’s important to care for my nails underneath. Also I have natural nails which I like to grow long, but with two young children, DIY and housework etc I need something to protect them and keep them strong.
The four base coats available are:
- Rock Solid
- Undercover Base Coat
- Time Repair Nail Elixir
- Bare It All
I tried out Rock Solid which was a pleasure to use and just glided onto the nails and dried quickly. You can use it under colour or on it’s own and build it up with a layer daily to protect nails. I’ve tried it out both ways over the last couple of weeks and definitely feel that my nails are stronger and certainly haven’t had any breakages during that time.
I also tried the Leighton Denny colour ‘I love Juicy’ which is a bright Summery colour, it definitely has a happy feel to it and I love the application of the polish too. Quick drying and really glossy the base coat and colour ogether make a great combination. I have to say that over the week I had the colour on it didn’t chip at all. By the end of the week it was wearing away at the ends which I’d expect with all the housework and gardening but overall it was a really lasting durable colour.
This is my first time trying out Leighton Denny nail care and I’m really impressed – Great application, great durability and glossy results. My nails feel stronger, longer and are a great length right now. I must also mention the mini glass nail file as it is fabulous, you can buy the full size one from Leighton Denny which I’d highly recommend as it files so gently, leaving nail edges smooth and exactly how you want them. Also it will last for years so no need to buy replacements. Head over to Leighton Denny now or check out the brand in your nearest M&S store!
