Dubai clinches world record for most nails filed

Dubai set a new Guiness World Record for the most number of nails filed and varnished in eight hours at the Star Atrium of The Dubai Mall on Friday.

The Beauty Connection Spa and KOKO Nail set a new record for the most nails filed totalling 50,080 and varnished fingernails of 5,108 people. A total of 100 manicurists dressed as Rosie the Riveter, a symbol of feminism and women’s economic power, polished an astounding 50,080 fingernails at lightning speed to break the previous record of 2,572 mini-manicures hands and 25,750 finger nails varnished approximately 12 minutes per hand with 100 technicians set by Sally Hansen and Priceline in 2011.

Nail technicians or manicurists on duty at The Dubai Mall’s Star Atrium did it from 2pm to 10pm giving complimentary mini-manicures with a KOKO Nail polish application to more than 5,000 people, who participated in the successful record-breaking attempt.

Women participating in the record-breaking attempt received a file, a base coat, two coats of varnish and a top coat and men received a file and a buff to shine. Each mini-manicure completed also received a token of gratitude with the one and only Guinness special edition KOKO Polish to take home.

The mini-manicures were free but a donation was welcome from participants towards ‘Rashid Centre for Disabled’, the charity partner of Beauty Connection Spa,

For the manicures completed, Beauty Connection Spa also donated a lump sum to Rashid Centre for Disabled.
