Think about all the consequences before you start

Before you begin getting involved and start investing, it’s wise to make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into. According to the statistics presented by The Telegraph, at the break of 2019, 60% of newly established businesses close within three years, and 20% go-under within just the first twelve months of operation. Nail salons rarely bring huge profit margins, at least not instantly. Their profitability depends majorly on the efficiency of their employees and the harsh truth is – many clients aren’t willing to pay what nail salons need to charge in order to be profitable. Like any business in the beauty industry, they are strongly affected by economic downturns – and currently, they have to compete with the rise of DIY culture that delivers everyday people a chance to get a service done at low cost.

Does it mean you shouldn’t open your own nail business? No! If you have confidence in your business concept and are in a position to take the risk, it’s most definitely worth taking into consideration. However, you have to be conscious of the risk and don’t make the decision hastily. You should also focus more on the issue of how to build a nail business that delivers value customers are actually willing to pay for.

Setting a budget

When we talk about starting a nail business, the first thing that comes to mind is a nail salon.We can calculate the cost and up-front expenses of opening a nail salon.

ü Rent

ü Equipment

ü Raw material purchasing

ü Labor cost

ü Salon decoration

ü Promoting


Here we simply calculate the initial investment, which is obviously not very friendly to beginners, the investment is relatively large and the payback cycle is long, while for customers, a manicure will take a relatively long time.So you need to take all of these factors into account before you start.

Is there a good way to solve the problem of the nail enthusiast who wants to start a business but doesn't have enough money?-- Manicure strips.In just a few years, manicure strips have grown to a size that rivals nail polish, so let's think about the cost of starting a nail wrap business.

ü Rent ---You can do it at home

ü Equipment---Basically No

ü Raw material purchasing---Nail polish strips

ü Labor cost---Yourself

ü Salon decoration---No

ü Promoting----Online 


From this we can see that the cost of a manicure business is fixed in procurement and marketing, which will save a lot of money.


However, the nail salon and the nail patch business are not in conflict, and the nail patch also provides a new way of thinking for the salon. The traditional manicure takes a long time, so the nail patch can solve this problem perfectly.And all kinds of complex patterns can be perfectly displayed on the nail paste, customers can choose freely.
