For those who might not yet feel comfortable stepping foot into a nail salon because of the pandemic but still yearn for professional pampering: enter ManiPlease (www.maniplease.com).
New Rochelle resident Sharice Pegram founded ManiPlease, a mobile manicure service, last year after having a baby. She wanted her nails perfected, but it was difficult for her to leave the house with a nursing baby to care for — and her experience sparked a business idea.
With so many still sheltering in place and others seeking socially distant and safe beauty treatments, Pegram’s appointment-only business has boomed in the era of COVID-19.
Licensed nail technicians will come to your house (or business or event) and offer classic and gel manicures and pedicures, using vegan and animal-cruelty-free nail polish and single-use tools. Nontoxic, water-based nail polishes are available for manicures for kids. Technicians are equipped with face masks, shields or goggles, gloves, disinfectant solutions, and will administer temperature checks.
Technicians primarily service Lower and Central Westchester and Fairfield County. For more info, reach out to ManiPlease, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
