Nails of the Day – Leighton Denny Steel Appeal

This little bottle of Leighton Denny’s Steel Appeal came in my February Feel Unique box (RIP). It’s the first Leighton Denny polish I’ve tried and has left me wanting to try more.

It is a very very dark grey, which is almost black. It has tiny flecks of micro-glitter in it – not enough for it to be sparkly, but just giving an interesting finish to the polish; a bit more dimension.

I’d been wearing a lot of pinks and reds on my nails recently and wearing this made me remember how much I love doing gothy nails, particularly in winter. I’m going to dig out Lincoln Park After Dark next <3

The application was easy – the brush fans out to enable you to get quite wide across your nail, and is definitely opaque with the two coats that I did. It’s very glossy, even without top coat, and lasts well.

Do you own any Leighton Denny polishes? Which would you recommend?

    That colour is divine! I love how it's multi-tonal. My favourite nail polishes are by Essie, but i've heard a lot about Leighton Denny recently!

    Also, I'm currently running a giveaway for the chance to win a Clarisonic Mia! I'd love it if you could check it out on my blog. xx

    I really like that colour, I think the dark Grey/Black looks very elegant, I also like these darker colours on shorter nails too 🙂 Jude xx @jadlgw
