I often get flabbergasted when I see girls with huge, sparkling nails using their phones. The first thought that comes to my mind is “How are they even able to touch their phone screens with such long talons for nails?” but then again, it is their choice. And when I started researching about this, I was even more astonished by the fact that this tradition of growing nails and manicuring has been going on since our ancient times.

Yes, even our ancestors used to paint their nails with different colours for different occasions. The first piece of evidence of nail art being used in ancient times comes from Egypt where men used to paint their nails before going to war. Interesting, right?

That is where it all started. But, as humans, we are an ever-evolving species and we keep switching cultures as we grow. And the same thing can be seen with the evolution of nail art. From “war paint” to a fashion statement, we have surely come a long way. Nowadays it is common to find nail bars and nail salons all around us. Through all this glamour and bling, one might wonder, “What if I open a nail bar and try to earn money from it?”, the very next moment, another question would start floating in their head, “is the nail art business profitable?”

You will find the answers to all these sorts of questions through this article. So, let’s dig deep into the world of long, shiny sometimes outrageous nails.

What is nail art?

The first question that you should ask is what exactly nail art is. Nail art is what see your mother doing when she uses nail polish and paints her fingernails or your sister going to a nail salon and coming back after a few hours with huge, claw-shaped nails that shine a lot and can be seen from across the room. Anything and everything related to nails today can be named under the blanket term “Nail Art”.

Is the nail art business profitable?

Seeing hundreds of girls with perfectly shaped and shiny nails daily, it is safe to say that the demand for this business is huge. Also, as more and more girls/women are becoming independent, this business is growing by leaps and bounds. If you have this skill or if you wish to become an entrepreneur in this field, this would be the best time to encash this opportunity. The investment in this business is minimal and setting up the infrastructure for this particular service is easy as well. All you need is a place to set up a few chairs and a staff that knows how to do their job perfectly. There are a few other points worth mentioning here regarding this business.

Demand and supply:

The first basic principle of Economics is the rule of demand and supply. It is evident that this business has a humungous demand in the market today, and where there is demand, there is money to be made. All you need to do is cater to that demand and create a supply chain. Hence, opening up a nail art business in today’s time is one of the best decisions you could ever make.


It does not matter how you start your business, but it sure matters “where” you set up your shop. The location you choose will decide the future of your business. This business is currently meant for the urban population (girls/women especially). If you are thinking of setting up a business in a suburban area, you might it difficult to get clients. However, a nail art business in an urban city like Chandigarh could be your chicken that lays golden eggs. The growth you would see in an urban city might leave you astonished.


intensive nature: Yes, this business can be profitable for you, but under some conditions. One of which is that you have a team of experienced and brilliant nail artists. People who know how to create magic on a small surface like a nail. Learning this art in itself is a tough task, however, interested students in Chandigarh can easily avail of our nail art courses which are curated to cater for all student needs and requirements. The knowledge given is not just on paper but our courses are highly practical based.


It may seem repetitive but I cannot stress this point enough, the nail art business is here to stay for a very long time. If you do not invest in it NOW, a few years down the lane, you might be sitting in a chair thinking that you have missed the train. So, instead of regretting it at a later stage in life, you should invest in this business now and reap its benefits.
