The touchscreen controlled machine allows you to pick a design, upload an image, or take a photo of yourself at that moment. After hearing the demo pitch , I had to take a seat and test it out myself to see if this really worked.
First, the demonstrator prepped my nail and painted it with a special white paint – think of it as a blank canvas for my nail art to be printed on. Then, she applied a clear coat polish, which is like a base. After the paint was dry, I stuck my finger in the machine and pressed down to activate it. After a few selections on the touchscreen and sizing the image to my nail, I heard a couple clicks and the machine started to print.
When the print was done, I carefully took out my finger from the machine. One last coat was added and then I was done. I noticed that the final coat brought out the vivid colors and made my nail glossy. The nail art lasts about two weeks and you can remove it with regular nail polish.
This is definitely a quick and easy way to add some personalized art to your nails. Right now the company is selling and leasing the machine to salons and spas – maybe you’ll see one in your neighbor hood soon. But if you don’t, you can check out their video here.
