Leighton Denny steps down from name-sake brand

Leighton Denny MBE has announced he is leaving the name-sake brand he founded, Leighton Denny Expert Nails.

First founded in 2005, Leighton Denny Expert Nails (LDEN) quickly became a household name.  In 2015, Leighton was awarded an MBE for his services to the beauty business.  

Having been at the helm of the company for the first ten years, Leighton decided the time was right to seek new challenges as the brand celebrated its 10th anniversary. Over the last 18 months, he then took a sideways step to work on other interests but still remained part time as Creative Consultant for LDEN.

Leighton told BeautyServe: “I am proud to have created LDEN and care deeply about its future, but I'm now ready for a complete change. I leave knowing LDEN is with a qualified team and one of the strongest ranges of products in the nail industry. I could not be more proud of the company's product range and what it currently stands for."

Leighton is the major shareholder and remains a Director of Leighton Denny Ltd, the company that owns the LDENtrademark. The rights to the LDEN trademark are licensed by Richards & Appleby Ltd, who have complete control of the range, formulae and all new products in development.
