I have another Christmas gift idea for you today, and today it is a gift set from Leighton Denny, the The Best Sellers Gift Set £16.00 which is part of their Colour Soiree Collection and contains 4 nail polishes.
I am going to share with you the polishes in the set and tell you a bit about them and then I have some swatches for you, so you can see exactly how the polishes look.
Leighton Denny polishes are known as "5 free" polishes, meaning they do not contain Tosylamide Formaldehyde resin, Camphor, DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde, the formula of the polishes is a formula that Leighton Denny have been using since 2005, which is high gloss, chip resistant and self levelling. If possible I always try and buy nail polishes that are 5 free, some are 3 free and some 7 free, but these "free" from polishes are the best for our nails and for us. I am going to write a post all about the free from polishes as it is something I am asked about a lot whenever I mention it.
Each of the polishes in the gift set are 5ml so these are smaller in size than a regular Leighton Denny polish which are 12ml, but a regular 12ml polish is priced at £12.00 so 4 full sized polishes would be £48.00 and this set has 4 5ml sized polishes for £16.00 so it is excellent value for money and the shades are beautiful and not only perfect for Christmas, but can be worn all year round.
Crushed Grape is a beautiful rich, as the name says Grape shade, which is perfect for this time of year, I love it and it is even more beautiful on the nails than in the bottle.
Butterfly Wings is such a pretty shade, it is a very pale pink with a subtle blue/lilac pearlescent shimmer to it. It is gorgeous, I didn't think it would show up well on my nails before I tried it, but it does and it looks lovely.
Twinkle Twinkle is a gorgeous silver glittery polish that can be worn as a top coat over the polishes in this set or over any polish, or it can be worn alone giving you some serious sparkly nails.
Double Up is a 2 in 1, base and top coat, I like 2 in 1 products, they are much easier to store, being a nail polish addict, I have quite a large collection of polishes, so anything that saves me room is a bonus.
All 4 polishes in the set can be worn alone as a single shade or by using different combinations of the shades, Double Up I have used as a base and top coat but have also worn it alone as a clear polish and with Twinkle Twinkle to add a little sparkle.
Crushed Grape looks stunning with either Twinkle Twinkle worn over it for a sparkly finish or with Butterfly Wings worn over it which transforms it into a beautiful shade and like nothing else I own. And Butterfly Wings looks super pretty with Twinkle Twinkle worn over it, and add in the Double Up worn as a top coat to give an extra glossy finish.
These are the polishes on their own, two coats of each polish.
These are the polishes when used with each other to create alternative looks.
I am really impressed with this gift set, I think it's brilliant value for money with each polish working out at £4.00 each, and you can create 6 different nail looks too, it is a really lovely set and one I would be happy to see under my tree.
If you would like to pick the Leighton Denny, The Best Sellers gift set up for someone you love this year, or as a treat for yourself, you can find it on the Feel Unique website here.
