Acu-Systems Inc. has acquired Nailmate and Acu-Systems professional nail products. Adrea Nairne, former operations manager for Nailmate, purchased the brands, rights, and inventory from Mel King, founder of Nailmate.
Nairne has relocated the company’s headquarters to Valencia, Calif., and plans to expand the Acu-Systems product line with “friendlier” professional products. Specifically, the company plans to develop an acrylic line that is gentle to the nails. “We’re not alone in this thinking, but we believe we’re the first to find the right combination,” says Nairne. The company is testing many now formulations and expects to introduce several new products in spring 1994.
