Beautician Nicole Singfield has been making press on nails long before coronavirus for clients with physically demanding jobs who can’t wear false nails for long periods of time.

She said: “Some people love having nails but they are nurses or work in the food industry so they can’t have false nails on all the time and needed something that they could take on and off with ease.

“But when the lockdown started and the salon that I work in Carcroft had to shut down I started to think about how my clients might want press on nails delivered to their homes.”

With the salon’s across the country closed for over a month now many women who regularly get their nails done have been facing the prospect of grown out falsies and lackluster nails.

“Having your nails done is a big part of my client's lives, it gives you a sense of confidence and even though it might seem trivial to some people it can really make a difference in someone’s mood,” Nicole continued.

“I don’t feel dressed up without nails on and at the moment we could all do with a bit of normality and routine.”

Nicole says there is no limitation on the designs she can create on the stick on nails and that they can last up to seven days with the glue tab material she sends with the nails but they can last weeks if additional nail glue is added.

“You can’t get closer to a salon service at the minute and I know many clients have been down in the dumps about not being able to go,” she continued.

“I have all my nail products with me at home and after the salon closed I felt like I had lost purpose so this is giving me back a sense of purpose.

Basic nails cost £15, acrylic costs £20 and crystal designs are £25.

Postage may take five to seven days due to current social distancing guidelines.
