Oh how I miss my SNS claws and my favorite nail tech! There is no substitute for Sophia and SNS but while in COVID-19 lockdown I discovered something new and easy to do at home! Enter ManiMe.
What is it?
ManiMe makes custom-fit stick-on gel manicures! Yes, stick on. If you’re anything like me and can’t paint your own nails to save your life, this is a quarantine godsend. It never fails—every time I try to paint my nails I end up getting polish all over my cuticles, smudging at least one, and I have zero patience to wait for them to dry!
How does it work?
First step is to scan your nails. Just snap a few photos of your nails next to a credit card for reference, submit, and shop manicures. ManiMe uses proprietary technology to create stick on gels sized to fit you!
And one of the the best parts is they feature super fun designs and collaborate with artists to create new collections all the time, so you never get bored.
The kit comes with everything you need for a DIY mani.
On my first try, I think it turned out pretty good! All you do is stick on the gel stickers smooth it out and file off the excess.
The more you do it the more you learn and get a hang of the filing part. Tip- it is so much easier if you use tweezers to place the stickers!
Here’s my first try:
Since then, I’ve become addicted to ManiMe and have always had a manicure during quarantine! Here are a few other sets.
Give it a try and tell me what you think!
