Book: Leighton Denny's 'How I Nailed It'

Leighton Denny 'How I Nailed It'* -  £6.70 (ebook)

If I'm honest, I really don't read as much as I should, as I always tend to choose the internet and TV to take up my time until bed time. Naughty I know, but when I find a book I really enjoy reading, I do find it hard to put down. This was one of those books!

If you didn't already know, Leighton Denny MBE is an award winning nail guru, who has worked with some of the world's top stars, including Mariah Carey, Kate Moss, The Spice Girls and Jade Jagger. His autobiography 'How I Nailed It'*, describes his journey through life and how he became so successful. What I love about this book is how incredibly open and honest he is about all parts of his life. He comes across very down to Earth, and describes in detail the struggles he had to overcome to eventually making his dream a success. He had a very tough childhood and learnt a lot from his Dad about working hard for himself. From selling fancy dress costumes, to forklift truck driving, to setting up his own brand, Leighton really knows the meaning of hard work and it's most definitely what's got him where he is today. I found it very refreshing to read that the glamourous lifestyle is not always about parties and good times, but it does in fact have it's low points.

If you're into reading autobiographies, and love anything beauty/nail related, then this book is for you. An added bonus is that this October, Leighton will be working with the charity Breast Cancer Care for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, in which he will be donating 20% of all gross sales from his website leightondenny.com. The book is currently only available electronically but will be available in paperback on 20th August.
