Welcome to ManiMe: Beauty Tech Never Looked So Good

As the direct-to-consumer movement has demonstrated, magical things can happen at the intersection of consumer goods and technology, and ManiMe is a clear manifestation of that magic in the beauty space.

An awesome product.

The entire ManiMe experience feels unique and highly customized, because it is. If you’ve never used the product before, here’s how it works.

Excellent timing.

Let’s face it — DIY at-home manicures are having a serious moment. The first case of novel Coronavirus in California was traced to a nail salon and the pandemic has dealt a major blow to the salon industry. One of the core values of ManiMe has always been eliminating the many dangers and downsides of a nail salon experience — chemicals, sanitation, time, inconvenience, cost — which have now only been heightened in the current era of social distancing.

A first-of-its-kind community.

Perhaps the most transformative part of the ManiMe mission is to build a community of nail artists and designers who can use the platform to not only showcase and scale the availability of their unique craft around the world, but also to connect with and support one another. Direct to consumer companies like Minted have demonstrated the power of creating communities for other types of designers, and we are excited for ManiMe to see similar success.
