The company offering £35,000 for a nail tester job has received more than 65,000 applications from all over the world.

Wow. Although perhaps unsurprising considering testing the latest polishes, colours and nail accessories would be a dream (and very glamorous) job for many women!

In just two weeks, start-up company nailbox was sent 65,000 applications from as far afield as the USA, Africa and South America – although sadly for those applications, the position is only available to UK-based candidates.

Some candidates are so desperate to get the position they've even sent indecent images of themselves… though we're not quite sure how that would get you the job!

Nicholas Whitmore, the company's MD, said: "We've been completely blown away with the interest in this job role. We knew it was likely to be popular; who wouldn't want to receive tonnes of free nail polishes and accessories? But never in our wildest dreams did we ever imagine we would have this many applications.

"Unfortunately the job is only available to UK residents, which many people don't seem to have realised, but even so we have an incredibly hard task in front of us to go through the applications one-by-one and start compiling a list of those we're interested in, with the aim of eventually narrowing it down to just one person.

"Whilst we have had an awesome amount of applications for this role, the vacancy is still open and we'd still encourage UK residents to apply. The competition is fierce, yes, but you never know unless you apply."

Applications can be submitted until Tuesday, 30 June. More details are available here.

Whoever is successful will receive 50 nail polishes and accessories every month to review and photograph for the company. Sounds like a dream, right?! Well there are a few stipulations including avoiding household tasks that could damage the appearance of your hands.

Good luck!
