Nailpad In Practice

They unveiled their creation: Nailpad, which is a patented, portable nail painting surface for manicures and pedicures at home or on the go. After spilling nail polish on her favourite jeans, Tori identified a gap in the market for this product. She sketched out the concept of Nailpad with Carrie, and Nailpad has been produced in black and pink.

Nailpad‘s small, flat surface is designed to solve the problems of shaky hands and unstable surfaces to ensure a stable way to paint nails at home.

Carrie and Tori comment: “Entering the Den and meeting the Dragons was an incredible experience, and the process was an exciting challenge. We loved every nerve-racking minute. The preparation helped us to focus on what we want to do next and has given us the confidence to do so. We hope the viewers enjoy our experience as much as we have.”

Although no immediate investment was offered in the Den, Carrie and Tori embraced the constructive feedback from all Dragons, to support the next stages of Nailpad’s journey.
