A nail-biting attempt is being made on Thursday 13 May to break the Guinness World Record for the most ‘File and Varnishes' to be completed in eight hours - over 2000 are needed to succeed.
The UK's leading beauty college - the London College of Beauty Therapy - is supporting the charity Wellbeing of Women, and although their expertise is being offered for free, donations will be welcome on the day. Wellbeing for Woman is a brilliant charity which funds medical research into all women's health issues.
You can even get your boyfriend or husband involved - for male clients they are offering a file and buff instead and they will still be counted in the final record attempt total!
The event will take place at London College of Beauty Therapy, 47 Great Marlborough Street, London, W1F 7JP, between 11am and 7pm.
With only a few weeks to go you can book a time slot for the event to minimise waiting times by calling 020 7208 1300 or emailing HelpUsNailIt@lcbt.co.uk or just turn up on the day. Follow LCBT on Twitter @lcbtsalon and join the Facebook event for all the updates in the run up to the attempt!
Speaking about the reasons behind the event, Eileen Cavalier, OBE, Founder and CEO of London College of Beauty Therapy said: ‘This is a fun way of helping to raise concerns about women's health issues. Although we plan to carry out at least two thousand nail treatments, a daunting challenge, we are, nevertheless, confident that each recipient will receive an excellent and enjoyable treatment.'
