False finger nails are an established product, but what about toes? Six years ago, Maria Bariles dropped a box on her foot and lost her big toenail. It was summer and she wanted to wear open toed shoes. She came up with the idea of using an adhesive which could be painted along with the rest of her toenails. This was the start of her business, Nail Creations – Appealing While Healing.
There must be a lot of women in this position. Even if they haven’t lost a nail, they may be unhappy with the look or shape of it. I don’t know how well this problem is catered for here in the UK (Maria Bariles’ business is in the US, but it could be worthy of further investigation.
