Posted November 04, 2018 04:07:50 While the world is still reeling from the terrible coronavirus pandemic, Australia is gearing up for its new season.
In a country of nearly 8.5 million people, the coronaviruses coronaviroids have left a huge dent in the local economy, with the number of people reporting health problems or illness dropping by half.
Many locals are also now taking up nail care as a way to cope with the epidemic, and many nail salons have sprung up across the country.
The National Health and Medical Research Council’s Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s National Nail Association has welcomed the growth in the number and popularity of nail saloons in Australia.
“There’s a lot of interest in the hobby,” National Nails Association general manager Matt Smith told ABC Radio Melbourne.
“It’s a great way to spend your money.”
One nail salon is currently set up at the CBD CBD’s Southbank.
While most people who visit the salon will be there for nail art or other nail services, a few people will also opt for nail polish.
It’s the salon’s owners’ hope that nail polish is a natural solution to the pandemic.
Dr Joanne Fossey, president of the National Nailing Association, told ABC radio the new nail saloon trend is a response to the global pandemic and is an attempt to save money for patients.
“We are seeing it because people want to spend more money,” Dr Fosse said.
“People are going to the nail salon because they have been told to.”
Dr Foshay said she hopes the trend will help to boost sales at nail salon.
“The reason why we are seeing more nail salontons is that people are looking for something different,” Dr Nilsen said.
She hopes that as nail salon owners learn more about the pandemics new symptoms, people will stop buying their products.
“As a business owner, it’s very important to know what’s going on,” she said.
