Jet-setting across the country, conducting interviews with the press… then giving a masterclass to the beauty queens of Glasgow? It’s not easy being a celebrity nail expert!
Last night, we were thrilled to welcome Leighton Denny MBE to our newest spa at PURE West Nile Street, Glasgow. Sharing tips, tricks and discussing all things beauty, we can safely say he ‘nailed’ the event. Get it? #SorryNotSorry
Before the event…
Although the event started at 18:30, Leighton joined our team at PURE West Nile Street in the early afternoon. Before getting ready for the event, he had some fantastic interviews and photos with the press… again, we say: “it’s not easy being a celebrity nail expert!”
We also had the opportunity to pick Leighton’s brain before our clients joined us for the main event..
Leighton spent over an hour with our therapists going through products, discussing what his favourite products were to use (and why). With demos for each product discussed and how to get the most out of them, it was great to hear from the ‘expert’ himself!
“It was amazing having Leighton share his product knowledge,” said Alison, Senior Therapist (find out more about her here!). “Of course, we all know how to perform flawless mani-pedis, but hearing the full processes behind each of the products was really beneficial for the team.”
Our clients arrive!
Introduced by our gorgeous Glasgow spa manager, Adele McMillan, we started the event off with a fantastic round of applause as Leighton took to the front of the room.
He discussed his journey, the products and his aspirations for the brand. Did you know Leighton used to be a forklift truck driver? Hearing how he got from there to an industry-leading expert is quite the story!
“Difficult things can happen,” he said. “But even though bad things happen, they usually happen for a reason in order for more good to come.”
With numerous awards, an MBE, best-selling novel (‘How I Nailed it‘, signed copies sold on the night!) and a successful launch of his perfume, Leighton carries his successes with a likability and humbleness. Let’s face it, no one likes a bragger.
The rest of the evening was filled with bubbles, cupcakes & nibbles. With each client getting a one-to-one with Leighton himself to discuss any nail concerns – they then had the chance to try out the products he recommended with our PURE girls.
Here’s to the next time Leighton joins us! If you liked the sound of this event, keep an eye out for the next one. Hopefully it won’t be too long away!
