Leighton Denny Welcome To The Funfair Collection - Review & Swatches

Monday, 30 March 2015

Welcome To The Funfair is Leighton Denny's spring 2015 collection and since they released it 6 weeks ago, it's been at the top of my 'to buy' list. However 4 weeks ago they announced a competition to win the entire collection and I won (along with many other gorgeous entries).

The collection consists of 6 colours; 4 cremes, 1 glass fleck and a glitter. The collection on first glance appears a little standard colour wise, however look again as you couldn't be more wrong. The glitter has a stunning pink shimmer and the peachy nude is an amazing colour I don't have anything similar to in my collection.

Ticket To Thrill is a beautiful peachy toned nude creme. At first I didn't think I'd like this polish but once I had it on I realised just how beautiful it was. I have no other polish like this in my collection and I know that it'll be a staple this spring. I used 3 coats and topcoat for the swatch below.

Kiss Me Quick is a gorgeous bubblegum pink creme. I love these type of bright pinks. I used 2 coats with topcoat for the pictures below.

Helter Skelter is a beautifully bright red creme which has a sneaky little orange undertone. I didn't realise just how bright this was until it was on, I am loving this polish so much, it was good to go in 1 coat but I used 2 coats as it brightened up the finished colour, I added topcoat for extra shine.

Love On The Carousel is a bright fresh turquoise creme. Its a really nice colour which will see you through to summer. I have seen a lot more people wearing blues on their nails this year so I know this will be a fave. I used 3 coats with topcoat for the photo below.

Scream To Go Faster is a stunning royal blue with a pink/purple glass fleck which adds a gorgeous shimmer. I had such a hard time capturing this polish, Although the polish is gorgeous in the bottle and on, these photos do nothing for it so I advise you to try it for yourself. I used 2 coats and topcoat for the photos below. The glass fleck shimmer is really clear in the macro, but it's very obvious on the nail, just not in the photo.

I also added a matte topcoat to see if the pink shimmer would appear any better in the photos.

Loop The Loop is a beautiful mix of multisized sky blue & peach matte glitter with a pink shimmer (similar to the glass fleck in Scream To Go Faster) in a clear base. I used 1 coat with matte topcoat to show off the glitter and shimmer. You can see the shimmer clearly in the macro shot and I just want to say it's stunning on the nail.

Overall I think this collection is brilliant. The names, unique colours and mix of finishes are really fun, something that's great to see from a brand like Leighton Denny. It would be difficult to choose a favourite but I love Ticket To Thrill, Loop The Loop and Love On The Carousel.

  1. Wow I love your swatches! The glitter looks great over the 4 different colours! I totally agree with what you said at the beginning, at first they do seem like standard colours but really they all have a bit of an unusual twist. Did you find that the pink had a slightly strange formula or was that just me?!

    1. I'm so glad you agree, when I saw them I loved the bright mix but I didn't realise just how beautiful it was as a collection. I didn't notice any issues but then I apply it very quickly. So glad you won too, I loved your entry xx
