Why THIS Leighton Denny Product Is SO A-PEELING To Me*


Confession : I'd never tried Leighton Denny products before now. I KNOW - shocking, disappointing... something which slightly more dramatic souls [ie me] might class as downright unacceptable. But thankfully this woeful story has a happy ending; as the gals at Alex Silver PR ended my LD drought by sending me their new Easy Peel Base Coat* and a rather erotic glittery polish* to test it out with, too. And as far as first impression products go, this blogger mail could not have been ANY more a-peeling to me.

The genius thinking behind LD's Easy Peel Base Coat is the answer to the strenuous battle that I [and countless other nail polish enthusiasts] have fought for many years. 

I love glitter nail polishes. But what NOBODY loves is the actual hellfire that emerges when it's time to remove them from ya talons. OMD. It's like the glitter becomes encrusted into your soul when it's time to take it off. Whereas glitter polish is the ultimate life hack for those whose nails chip or break easily [cos noone can tell through all that sparkle & sass.... plus it stays on for legit decades] it's the ultimate ballache when it comes to removing it. And henceforth [I am Shakespeare now, k?] Easy Peel was born.

It's pretty self explanatory what Easy Peel does. The name kinda says it all. But yeno, I love a good excuse to ramble; so let's embellish. 

Before applying ya fave glitter [or dark, pigmented polish which ordinarily would stain like a little biiiiiiitch] simply apply two thin, even coats  of EP on ya nails; letting each coat dry completely [this is mega important] before moving onto anything else. You can tell it's dry when the coat goes totally transparent. Try and be as precise as you can during the application too - you want the base to only sit on ya actual nail; not onto the skin surrounding it or ya cuticle [cos this makes it less effective / long lasting.] It's a little like painting ya nails with posh PVA glue - and we ALL know that painting ya hands with that stuff during art class just so you could peel it off after was the most satisfying part of British education.

Once this is done, you're good to go - go cray cray and apply glitter 'til your heart's content. Shine, sparkle and ooze dat sass until it's time to take it off and replace with a new shade... and then; alls you need to do is push at the edges of ya nail until the polish begins to come away... and peel. It's heavenly.

Ordinarily, this much glitter [like, we're talking a fair few coats here guys; I am extremely extra] would be the ultimate ballache to remove. But not anymore, thanks to LD. It doesn't get pure encrusted into the surface of your nail, the glitter fragments don't take 84 years to get off with ya cotton wool & nail polish remover and omg it's fun. Like, too fun. I literally painted my nails and peeled them off twice, back to back, just for the novel experience. I love peeling stuff. I love glitter. I loved PVA. I love life hacks. And now, I think I also fully love Leighton Denny.

Free from the ‘5 nasties’, cruelty free and vegan-friendly – I can confirm that this peel off base coast is the perfect addition to the nail polish repertoire of any glitter enthusiast. And too fun to even cope with. You can pick up Leighton Denny products at M&S, John Lewis, Look Fantastic & Feel Unique; and this new Easy Peel Base Coat retails at the price of £12. WORTH IT.

Have you tried anything from Leighton Denny yet? Do you enjoy peeling off ya nail polish as much as I do? Brb, off to do a bit of peeling, huns xo
