Announcing MiniMe!

Ever since I started working at ManiMe, my son has been obsessed with what mani Mommy is wearing this week. His favorite ManiMe design featured strawberries so one day I cut out the strawberries from the gel sheet and put them on his fingers; it made his day! If only we had a version that he could wear without my having to do any trimming…. Announcing MiniMe! Now your kids (and mine) can enjoy ManiMe solids and designs in kids’ sizes. And the timing couldn’t be better as Back to School is just around the corner. Our first MiniMe collection features 14 solids and designs. We use the same salon-quality gel for MiniMe that we use for the adult size version. There are 46 gels in assorted sizes – just pick the one that fits each of your child’s nails best. As a bonus, we’ve included additional gel “stickers” in hearts, stars circles and polygons. Use these to customize your child’s mani look or as decorations for notebooks, water bottles, lunch boxes, etc. The best part? You can be mani-twins with your kids! We offer the same designs for you [in standard or custom sizes]. Check them out here. Share your pics @manime.co
Top 5 Pedicures for summer season

Top 5 Pedicures for summer season

July means high summer! The weather is starting to heat up in SoCal and everyone here at ManiMe is ready to trade in their sneakers for sandals and flip flops. Here are some staff favorite pedis for Summer 2022.  Palm Springs Nothing screams “summer” louder than this vibrant pink. Get ready for lots of compliments.  Mochi Ombre In search of something a little more subtle but just as gorgeous? Look no further than Mochi Ombre. High Tide Who says dark colors should be relegated to winter? We love this moody blue paired with a simple heeled sandal for nights out.  Arctic Ice A sleek shade of white is always in style. And it’ll make your tan (real or fake) pop.  Just Peachy  Prefer to keep things understated? This is just the right neutral for you.  Disco in the Desert  Put away that “Zoom” shirt and put on your dancing shoes. You’ll be the life of the party with this HBO “Euphoria”-inspired pedi design from Natalie Minerva.
