Leighton Denny Swatches: The Reds

Like the Leighton Denny Neutrals and Vamps, which I posted about here, my collection of reds from the brand is fairly small. I do love red nail colours, but tend to wear them more on toes than I do on fingers. The four I do own are all gorgeously glossy, shimmer free shades, which like the other colours I’ve already talked about/swatched, apply and wear incredibly well.

Leighton Denny: Provocative, Viva La Diva, Feel the Burn & Rampant Rose

Provocative: A glamorous, bright, classic red, which applies perfectly and dries to an amazingly shiny finish.

 Viva La Diva: A super glossy, vibrant orange-y red. A perfect, summer-y manicure or pedicure colour.

Feel The Burn: A warm, earthy, terracotta shade. I actually wore this one a lot during the colder months, but the colour also works as a summer shade, too, and looks great against slightly tanned/darker skin.

Rampant Rose: A rich, creamy, berry-ish/red shade, which is very similar to Chanel’s April.

All shades are available from the official Leighton Denny site:, and lookfantastic, where worldwide postage is free! The bottles are £11.00 each and contain 12mls of product.


  1. I'm totally impressed by the shine those colors give off without a top coat. I'm with you - I won't really wear bright reds on my hands...but these colors would make cute summer sandals look even better with bright toes :)

    1. All of the shades I've tried from the Leighton Denny range dry to a lovely glossy finish, Sid. The brand is quickly becoming one of my favourites for nail colors. And I agree, Provocative and Viva La Diva are both fantastic, summery pedicure shades!

  2. I love red on nails, but I just realized that I actually don't own a basic, fire engine red. Yikes! This must be remedied.

    1. Me too, Larie! I wouldn't mind adding a few more to my collection too, actually. There are a couple from Chanel that I currently have my eye on, and I must replace my bottle of Essie's Really Red, which is a really gorgeous shade!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate and read each and every one of them!
