 Nailmatic, why nail polish ? Because !

The beauty market is one of the most dynamic segments of the luxury overall industry. Fragrances and skincare are traditionally the 2 engines that leaded the way in the segments for several years. Nevertheless due to a heavy competition, market segmentation and probably a lack of dynamism, these 2 activities have been stagnating a lot. 2 other segments took the lead since 2000: MakeUp and especially Nail Polish. Look the figures.

2012-2013 represented a worldwide record with  7.5 billion US$ spent on nail services. According to Euromonitor, nail polish sales increased by 43% from 2008 and 2012. In comparison, lipstick sales increased only by 7% and facial makeup by 11%. Euromonitor also says that 60% of women in developed countries take time to varnish their nails. And this figure reaches 72% of the 16 to 24 years olds. And let’s accept it: only 7% of women use false nails.

Celebrities in Nail art are today one of the biggest influencers on the beauty industry. Thanks to the development of internet, especially Social Media, hundreds of nail art websites and blog appeared. Some of them have a bigger traffic than well known beauty magazines.

Nailmatic, the answer to Generation Y

Nailmatic aim or mission is to provide the best qualitative nail polish at an affordable price, every where and every time. How? By distributing their products via automated distribution machines in the streets, in department stores… everywhere.

Why? Because they want to talk to a generation of women who are urban, mobile, super busy and yet fashionable and paying attention to their look. These generation, called the millenials or generation Y are very different from the baby boomers and generation X (previous generation). They are confident, tolerant and conscious with their acts. They are the first generation being born with internet and social media. We also call them generation ME, as they are more into customization, personalization and narcissism than then previous generations. The affirmation of their individual identity is stronger than never. They have money, time to spend on getting information about brands and services and are hyper connected.
