Although these are from Leighton Denny’s autumn/winter 2015 collection I recently picked them up from the M&S sale, as they were super cheap! I managed to pick up three, even though I only really wanted one or two. I will already state that online none of these shades are left to buy, but you may be in luck in store, like I was with two of these shades. You can still pick these up as well on the official Leighton Denny website (link here) but they’re still at the full retail price of £11.00.
So, on with the review!
Thanks to my mom, I discovered Leighton Denny a couple of years ago, but I haven’t as of yet owned any of his polishes until now, and boy was it worth the wait!
These are some of the nicest nail polishes I own, due to the quality of the nail polish, it’s lasting time, and of course the price! But I’ll go into detail about all those in this review.
L-R : Aphrodite’s Love, Queen Hera, Athena Love
I picked up three of six shades from the collection:
Aphrodite’s Love – An olive cream with a metallic duo-chrome finish.
Queen Hera – A metallic gold with chrome finish.
Athena Divine – A deep, midnight blue with metallic shimmer.
For £11.00 you’re paying for 12ml bottle, with a high performance nail colour. I found with all of these I only needed two coats max to get a really good pay off. All the shades are really pigmented, which I was pleased about.
Lasting time on these was amazing too! Aphrodite’s Love is currently on my toes, and has been the past week. It’s not chipped at all, not even during my pole fitness classes! Which is great to be honest. When I wore Queen Hera all weekend it lasted throughout, and didn’t chip once. Again, I was really pleased about it. I haven’t had the chance to wear Athena Divine yet, but I’m going to wear it next weekend and see how the lasting time is, but if it’s anything like the other two shads, it’ll last ages.
So here are some swatches of the polishes themselves!
I have shown all the polishes with both one, and two coats, just so you can see the pigmentation!
My personal favourite has to be Athena Divine. Like the name, it is a divine colour and I’ve never seen anything like it. I can’t wait to rock this when I next have my holiday from work (FYI in a months time!) as well as when it’s mine and Dane’s anniversary in June, which will soon be here!
It’s a shame these are limited edition nail polishes, as they are truly stunning!
Will you be trying to pick these up in the M&S sale? Make sure to let me know in the comments!
Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a great weekend!
