Nail guru Leighton Denny spills his secrets

07 November 2008


Guess who's just popped into the Pod here at Westfield? None other than the uber-cool nail master Leighton Denny. He's just finished doing Geri Halliwell's nails (in shimmery blue Jailbird, since you ask) and he's here to make over the Grazia girls nails in the Debenham's beauty room. So we decided to grab him for a 5 min chat to spill his nail secrets:

‘Forget last season's black. The new nail colour is purple,' he told us. ‘Jade Jagger asks me around each week to give her nails a new coat of my No Comment. She can't get enough.'

Don't be scared of wearing this season's dark colours, either. ‘Always use a base coat to stop staining the nail,' Leighton advises. ‘When removing pop some nail polish remover on a cotton pad and hold it onto the nail. Don't rub it just hold and swipe off. If there are any minor mistakes around the nail, clean up with an ear-bud popped in nail polish remover to keep it looking really precise.'

His top tip for winter? ‘Hand moisturiser with an SPF is an essential, especially in the cold weather we're experiencing here in Westfield!'
