Nail a world record with the London College of Beauty Therapy!

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 8 - 2012

I first blogged about this challenge a couple of years ago, but the London College of Beauty Therapy are at it again and want to set another world record, this time with the help of nail guru, Andrea Fulerton!

So, just what do they have to do to reclaim the world record?  They’re going to attempt to paint and file 3000 volunteer’s nails in just 8 hours – that’s 375 pairs of hands every hour!

This all sounds like rather good fun but there is a more serious side to the proceedings and the students and staff at LCBT are also delighted to be using the occasion to help raise awareness for charities Ray of Sunshine and All About Eve.

So, what can you do to help?

If you’re available to volunteer your lovely nails, you’ll be very well received at the London College of Beauty Therapy, 47 Great Marlborough Street, London W1F 7JP.

The challenge takes place in two days time on Thursday 10th May 2012 from 11am to 7pm, and they really do need as many volunteers as possible!  In addition to receiving your shiny new manicure, you’ll also walk out with a lovely goodie bag and the smug feeling that you’ve risen to the challenge.
