The startup company creates custom stick on gel nails, curated to fit the customer's nail shape.
Since the closing of beauty salons due to COVID-19, consumers have looked to at home manicures as a substitute. ManiMe has grown tenfold since then with 40% of costumers repurchasing products.
"For many women, [a manicure is] a sign of confidence and feeling put together," said co-founder David Miro Llopis.
ManiMe plans to branch out to nail artists next, as they have already partnered with 11 artists to expand its catalog.
