Manicube brings manicures to the office
Why spend your entire lunch hour trekking to a nail salon, waiting for an available manicurist and then praying you don’t wreck your fresh polish while fishing out money for a salad you’ll eat at your desk?
Now you don’t have to do any of that, thanks to the launch of Manicube in San Francisco.
The whip-smart service sends nail technicians to your workplace and offers $15 manicures that will take up only 15 minutes of your busy day. Manicube sets up portable stations (with popular polish brands like Essie, OPI, Deborah Lippmann and CND Vinylux) in an office conference room on a weekly or biweekly basis for easy nail maintenance.
You book and pay online (no more awkward wet-nail cash exchanges) and are never kept waiting for your appointment. Magazine-stocked iPads--with everything from Us Weekly to The Economist--are also on hand.
Manicube works directly with HR departments to set up this service, and there’s a sweet referral bonus. If you’re the one to tip off your company to Manicube, you’ll get $50 in nail credits. Really.
A quality service with a major efficiency factor (and bonus incentive)? Now that’s something your boss is sure to get behind.
