This past week at pro beauty industry trade show, Cosmoprof North America in Las Vegas, MANI MAKER was awarded the Most Innovative Nail Product. An amazing achievement for young Founder Amanda Lavian, a recent high school graduate, who developed this handy nail tool with her sister Emma Lavian (14). It was designed to make holding the bottle and opening the bottle (of polish, gel, top coat, etc.) an easier experience, especially for nail technicians who may suffer from repetetive stress.
“For nail pros, the repetitive strain of gripping and opening polish bottles is real: Trigger finger, hand cramping and carpal tunnel can be career threatening," says Amanda Lavian. "Mani Maker is made of a super-soft silicone and has a perfectly ergonomic shape to help alleviate and prevent hand/wrist pain while providing a stronger grip to easily open those tough bottles. “You don’t realize how much you need it until you start using it. The density of the grip was specifically created to easily go on the bottle yet provide enough give to keep you in control of the mani."
Mani Maker ($15) is available in 4 colors: Fuchsia, Lime, Blanc, Violet at manimaker.com
The Mani Maker Cosmoprof 2023 Nail Award will hit global status at Cosmoprof Bologna in March 2024 and will be proudly displayed as a North American winner.
