Proud to Sponsor Nailing Mental Health

Proud Sponsors to Nailing Mental Health

Handirest were proud to support Nailing Mental Health last Sunday along with other beauty industry names such as Sweet Squared, Salon Services and Bio Sculpture. Launched by celebrity manicurist, Stephanie Staunton the event was created to raise awareness of mental health issues with an attempt to break the Guiness World Record by providing 6078 files and polishes within an eight hour time frame with money raised going to Mind, The Samaritans and Nailing Mental Health.

Why that number?

6078 people lost their battle with mental illness in 2015 so there’s significance in this number that brings home the message about the stigma surrounding mental health.

With approximately 300 manicurists on board, Nailing Mental Health took place at the Intercontinental Hotel at the O2 in London where supporters raised money and enjoyed a file and polish. Nails were polished using the Handirest manicure tool, provided for the event as part of Handirest’s sponsorship and other companies lent a hand with the supply of green nail polish – a significant colour as it is the colour of the Nailing Mental Health charity.
