Since her move to London in 2002 Jenny Longworth has taken the nail and fashion industry by storm. She is the go-to manicurist for A-listers like Rihanna, Adele, Jessie J, and Harry Styles. Moreover, her distinct and quirky style has made her a highly sought-after favourite of editorial clients, and her work has graced the covers of AnOther; i-D; LOVE; Perfect; British, French, Italian, and Arabian Vogue. Beloved by the beauty press for her ‘of-the-minute’ take on nail art and her unique Brummie charm, Jenny has been a featured nail expert in publications such as Vogue, Elle, GQ, and The Sunday Times Style Magazine.
A familiar face backstage at the various international Fashion Weeks, Jenny also regularly shoots with such world-renowned photographers as Alasdair McLellan, Juergen Teller, Glen Luchford, Karim Sadli and Willy Vanderperre. She is regularly called upon to create nail looks for brand campaigns and design Houses such as Chanel, Fenty, Gucci, Lanvin and Mulberry.
Jenny’s work is recognised throughout the industry. She consulted for Topshop Beauty, helping to revamp their line of nail colours. From 2011 to 2015, she was Revlon’s UK Nail Care Ambassador. She was named ‘Nail Technician of the Year’ in 2012 at the Scratch Stars Awards, and, in 2019, Jenny was nominated for a British Fashion Award—the first time a Nail Artist has been honoured at the event. Jenny also works closely with the charity Art Against Knives, hosting nail art workshops to engage and empower young, vulnerable women in London.
Jenny’s meteoric rise in the industry comes as no surprise to those who know her, as she possesses a vast knowledge of nail care and an unparalleled work ethic. Her love of the craft combined with her exacting attention to detail, her experimental style, and an instantly likeable persona, make Jenny really stand out from the crowd.
