With virtual meetings dominating working life these days, women are leaving no stone unturned to groom and make themselves look and feel good. Shifting their focus to their nails, they are experimenting with their nail looks and seeking professional advice too.

Nail salons and technicians reveal they are witnessing a surge in the nail paint, refilling and extensions. “When they visit a nail bar, they want to relax and feel looked after. Many clients have told our staff they don’t care if nail extensions come off while doing dishes, they still want to get nail extensions done,” says Adhikansh Aroraa, founder of Bombay Nail Company.
