nailmatic was founded in 2012 by Boris Gratini and Lilian Monnier. The former comes from the beauty industry and so is at the helm of our product design. The latter, having developed his career in communications and graphic design, consequently steers the design and artistic side of things.
Around this complementary duo a super team has grown: the nailmaTeam!
=> Why is there no capital letter at the beginning of “nailmatic”?
Simply to annoy you every time it’s at the beginning of a sentence and to check that you are paying attention. Rest assured, we sometimes regret this graphic design decision (and moan about the resultant autocorrect).
=> Are your products vegan and cruelty free?
None of our products or ingredients have been tested on animals. It’s actually banned in the European Union and all our ranges are 100% made in France so we are definitely animal-friendly at every stage of our production. Moreover, our products do not contain any animal (or animal derived) ingredients, so yeah, we’re proudly vegan :)
=> Are your products organic?
Strictly speaking, organic nail polish doesn’t really exist—or only from a marketing point of view in any event. nailmatic favors organically-sourced ingredients as far as possible, as shown by the launch of our Kids range. Our research in this direction continues, in order to develop increasingly natural formulations. It’s a real challenge as our women’s nail polishes must be long lasting and have a high coverage texture and glossy finish.
=> Your children’s nail polishes are removable with warm soapy water. is it harmful for fish and the environment when that water washes down the plughole?
We promise that our kids nail polishes are not harmful to any fish, rest assured. They contain no toxic substances.
=> Where are your products made?
Our products are made in France, within a radius of roughly 200km from our Paris offices. We have even made a super map to plot it all out.
Our packaging is recyclable and we use vegetable dyes.
=> what’s so special about your nail polishes?
We built nailmatic on the premise that an excellent quality nail polish shouldn’t cost more than 10$. Innovation is at the heart of our business: our women polishes offer high coverage and high shine, are shock resistant and above all, dry in a flash. Truly. They are also nail friendly as we work on the basis that our products should be able to be used by our nearest and dearest. Same goes for our kids range: it’s totally safe and fun!
=> Where can we see your products in real life?
nailmatic is stocked in 40 or so countries so there are plenty of possibilities to see our products IRL. The easiest way is to use our Store Locator.
=> Do you have lots of stock for each of your products?
In general, yes, apart from our collabs, which are designed to be produced in limited editions.
=> I have an awesome shop and I’d love to sell your products in the usa or canada—is that possible?
Absolutely! Please use our contact form
=> I have a blog and I’d like to do a partnership with you. How do I go about that?

=> Is the nailmaTeam recruiting?
We are sometimes, but it’s quite unusual. nailmatic is a start-up with a tight-knit team that works very, very hard. Following us on our social media is the best way to stay up-to-date with if/when we are recruiting.
=> What is the Nailletter?
It’s our newsletter. We send it out once a week maximum and we promise that we won’t give out or sell your email addresses—cross our hearts and hope to die. It’s also very easy to unsubscribe (and re-subscribe, too).

=> I haven’t received a reply to my email. What’s up?
We receive a huge amount of email on all kinds of subjects (partnerships, orders, wholesale, projects, job applications…). So it’s sometimes difficult to reply to all of it, but we promise to do our best. And it’s also possible that your email has found its way into our spam folder.
