Get nails painted for £5 this Monday for #NailingMentalHealth
By Helena Biggs | 29 September 2017 | News
Celebrity nail stylist, Stephanie Staunton, will be using her high profile contacts to help raise awareness of mental health issues in a second mammoth nail painting mission this Monday – and you can get your nails painted for £5.
The talented tech, who suffers with bipolar disorder, raised over £7000 for mental health charities in April in a masse nail painting mission as part of the Nailing Mental Health campaign – and she’s bringing the initiative to Olympia Beauty on Monday.
Nail professionals have been volunteering to paint nails for a minimum of one hour at the event, between 10am and 5pm. Charging £5 per file & paint, the money will be donated to mental health charities, MQ and Samaritans. To book a file and paint, click here – or just turn up on Monday.
Stephanie, who has tended to the nails of Little Mix, Leona Lewis and Scarlett Johansson, set up Nailing Mental Health towards the end of last year. When word got out about her money-raising mission, her network of over 300 nail technicians volunteered to travel to London and lend a hand to paint as many nails as they could in eight hours.
Nail technicians, leading brands and organisations have already pledged their support to this second phase of the campaign, and will be providing techs and products to paint nails in shades of turquoise and green (the colour of the mental health ribbon) for the event.
Stephanie comments: “I set up Nailing Mental Health when I was recovering from a traumatic bipolar episode and feel that more people need to be made aware of mental health issues.
“Hopefully, this event can raise awareness of mental health issues – and the support available.
“Charities need money to continue supporting those suffering, and to do more research into disorders, so I aim to raise a huge sum through this second phase of the event and a number of other fundraising efforts.”
