Two beauticians from Sheffield are to join a group of 350 nail artists who will take part in a Guinness World record attempt this weekend.
Amy Oldale, owner of Halo Nails, will travel to London with colleague Kelly Bridgland to take part in an eight hour sponsored nail paint event to raise mental health awareness.
The team of beauty therapists, who will travel from all across the country to take part in the challenge, are hoping to paint 6,078 people’s nails to break the current world record.
Amy said: “Myself Kelly decided to get involved with the event as it’s something extremely important to us. Mental health is still extremely stigmatised and I think we all can probably say we’ve been affected at some point.
“This has become more apparent when talking to clients in the salon. Our wonderful clients have happily donated.”
People who would like be involved are asked to go to Intercontinental Hotel, London, on Sunday April 2 between 10am and 6.30pm to pay £5 to have their nails painted a glittery green.
Money will be split between three charities; Mind, Samaritans and Nailing Mental Health.
