We are a female founded start-up, bringing seamless technology into a high growth category. US nail salon services is a $7.5B industry, and polish sales jumped 30% last year (vs. 4% for the entire US beauty market). Analysts compare this growth to the lipstick industry in the Great Depression: when the economy is down, women always find a way to maintain their beauty routine. As of Jan '13, 28% of US women get manicures (44.2M).
