Salon manicure alternatives

Due to Covid 19, nail salons have been closed in many countries. For women who cannot live without manicured nails, alternative solutions exist. 

If a few years ago, you could only find French manicure looks or basic colors press-on nails, nowadays the market is rich with innovative brands who offer different shapes and designs. The system is very easy to use. Some companies like Dashing Diva offers pack where you’ll find 30 nails, an alcohol pad, mini file, and stick. Instead of a glue, these nails already come with adhesive on the back of each nail, allowing to easily put them on.

Another alternative to a salon manicure is nail stickers. Again, you just need a few minutes to apply them. Brands like Ohora Nail Art Lab are offering innovative colors, textures and trends. New products are introduced periodically and the brand has various textures (glossy, matte, glitter, syrup, nacre, hologram, oil/water painting, and mixture), and dozens of colors. What is special about these stickers is that they are gel ones, meaning they last longer and have to be set with a UV lamp. Designs are fun and come in a large number. The sticker system allows anyone to have an art nail manicure at home for a more affordable price than in a salon. 

Will the sale of press-on nails and nail stickers rise thanks to the pandemic ? We believe so, but most importantly, this trend is proving that self-care is still a major focus for women even more so during these uncertain times.
