Review: Leighton Denny - Colour and Go Duo Base and Top Coat


This is one of Leighton Denny's Colour and Go Duo Nail Paint Duo's. This particular one contains 4ml of Under Cover Base Coat and 4ml of the New Crystal Finish Top Coat. I got this in a set, I have also seen this as a magazine freebie.

Under Cover Base Coat

"An innovative, matt-finish base coat that helps 'grip' colour to help maximise wear and reduce chipping. It has colour diffusers to even tone and mask nail discolouration. It contains Panthenol (Pro vitamin B5), Calcium & Vitamin E to help strengthen and support the nail. When UNDER COVER changes from shiny to matt it shows you its time to apply nail colour" - Leighton Denny

I actually quite like this base coat, I find that it changing to a matte finish really does help the polish you apply on top to stick better as well as being a guide as when to apply the polish.

New Crystal Finish Top Coat

"Leighton Denny Crystal Finish. This Crystal Finish nail polish offers a crystal hard, fast-drying top coat on top of your nail colour, or a shiny clear polish on its own. Add incredible gloss and lustre to your manicure with this Leighton Denny Top Coat"

This really did dry the polish quickly, not as quickly as Seche Vité, Sally Hansen Insta Dri or HK Girl but still quickly. The shine is great too. This new formulation is definitely an improvement on the previous crystal finish top coat.

I found the concept of the pen to be very useful, especially for travel. It means you can put this in your nail bag and not think too hard about having the basics. The brushes were both of standard Leighton Denny size and were really easy to work with. I did find painting using the pen to be a little difficult as the brush was top heavy as it had the other end of the pen attached.

Starstuck is a glitter black polish, opaque in two coats.



Fireball is a orange, red, pink glitter polish. Opaque in two coats.

Moon Shine;

Moon Shine is described as a cream shimmer. This is three coats of it and you can still see my smile line. This would work well as a topper.

The base coat is good, it leaves your nails matte which helps the polish to stick, it is also a pink, nude colour which helps disguise any discoloration your nails might have. The Crystal Finish top coat is relatively quick drying, and does leave a nice shine to the nails. An improvement on the previous version.
