A Nail Biting Record Attempt!

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 27 - 2010

I couldn’t resist posting this press release that landed in my inbox yesterday… check it out…

The London College of Beauty Therapy are undertaking a Guiness World Record on Thursday 13th May and in order to achieve it, they need YOUR help!

They’re hoping to break The Guinness World Record for the highest number of File and Varnishes to be carried out in eight hours!  That means over 2000 files and polishes!

The London College of Beauty Therapy is staging the event to support the charity Wellbeing of Women which funds medical research into all women’s health issues.

Men and Women are invited to come along on the day to receive a free file and varnish (or file and buff) performed by a highly trained therapist.

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.”

The Guinness World Record File and Varnish event will take place between 11am and 7pm on Thursday May 13th at London College of Beauty Therapy, 47 Great Marlborough Street, London W1. The college is located close to Oxford Circus Underground Station.

If you’d like to volunteer your tips for a good cause, email the bods behind the challenge to book your slot at helpusnailit@lcbt.co.uk

    I really want to go to this but sadly I couldn’t get to London on that date – I wish there was more beauty events oop North!

    Lol how random :)!

    Very cool but too bad it’s not closer!

  5. Janie says:

    Will they be providing nail dryers so that we can then get the tube home without smudging? I just can’t risk it with the thought of having to stand on the tube home and some idiot smudging me!

  6. @Janie – I doubt it, it’s more about the charity effort than anything I think and that would obviously slow down their challenge?

    I TOTALLY recommend a purse size bottle of this though: http://www.johnandginger.co.uk/seche-vite-dry-fast-top-coat-travel-size-13169-0.html

    Makes smudged nails a thing of the past!

    I have to have my nails painted weekly for me due to my clumsiness and even with Seche Vite as a top coat I manage to get dents in my nails for hours afterwards!

    Usually it is taking my credit card out of my purse that does it!
    I use Seche Vite and then a Creative Fast Dry spray, but nothing can prevent the little dents!!

    Hi

    Everyone here at LCBT is sooo excited about this event… sorry you guys cant make it from up north.

    I think we are going to try and use a quick drying topcote and hopefully fastdry spray too!

    If you want to book a time slot you can email HelpUsNailIt@lcbt.co.uk or call 02072081300.

    “fingers crossed” we will make lots of money for Wellbeing of Women!
