LONDON FASHION WEEK AW19

Back for another impressive season at London Fashion Week, Leighton Denny Expert Nails was the nail brand of choice for 3 influential shows.

Resident manicurist to London Fashion Week and a mainstay in editorials such as Vogue and Elle, Pebbles Aikens is accustomed to high-end fashion and fuses nail care into all her work. For Pebbles, our treatment range is the perfect fit.

Pebbles, with her team of manicurists, collaborated first with Natasha Zinko to create a modern, edgy look on short nails using Zero Gravity; the perfect dove grey to ground the bright neons and denim in the collection.

In complete contrast, the highly acclaimed JW Anderson show showcased a refined and well-groomed look to compliment bold hair, strong shapes and the juxta-positioning of fabrics. The focus here was a perfect manicure and pedicure with a clean finish of Undercover basecoat that added a healthy glow.

A favourite among red-carpet celebrities, editorial manicurist Sophia Stylianou selected Maneater and Provocative. Sophia created an understated yet graphic design to fit with striking, military inspired pieces for the Paul Costelloe AW19 show.

NAIL ILLUMINATOR

New to the range, this 2 in 1 Brightening and Recovery treatment has quickly become a manicurists’ essential.

This treatment basecoat conceals and illuminates damaged or discoloured nails whilst promoting hydration to combat dryness and restore strength.

Nail Illuminator made an appearance at the JW Anderson AW19 show at London Fashion Week. JW opted for a natural, chic and expensive look for the nails. Pebbles Aikens, lead manicurist, used two coats alone which gave the models a touch of colour as well as a treat for their nails.
