3D nail salon
Let’s start with the game that lets you dive into the madness of manicure.
This game is a real virtual beauty salon at your fingertips. The mechanics are simple: you will have to serve the customers and try to consider all their requests. Once your work is done, you will get the money that can be spent on purchasing more materials and everything in between.
Hereby, you need to make sure you do your job carefully and don’t leave clutter – customers won’t appreciate if you accidentally cut them or break your finger. In addition, you will be able to work with all types of nails and do both pedicures and manicures. You also need to consider that not all nails are healthy at first, so you will need to take care of that too.
There will also be VIP clients that you will need to recognize and treat. The nail simulation is ultra-realistic and there are many steps to take before the nails are done. On top of that, you’ll be able to spend the money on salon development – buy new furniture, paint the walls, and don’t forget to charge extra money for comfort. You can also add new procedures like nail extensions and more.
