Self Service Nail Polish Vending Machines from Essie
Can you imagine an exclusive and automatic nail-polish vending machine at airport? Yes it is no more a dream! Essie has just announced opening of kiosks which will offer 48 different bottles of polish at airports and malls starting from this month. It is named as ‘Essie Color Boutique’. This novel digital machine will be offering individual color. Each bottle will cost $8.50.
The kiosks — the innovative nail polish vending machines — will flaunt digital touch screens and come with streamlined user interface. This will help customers to select right product from a pool of products available at retail value. 42 assorted shades of permanent nail polish along with 6 seasonal shades that are updated quarterly will be available.
The first machines will be installed at the Oakland International Airport and the JetBlue terminal at JFK. There have been reports that next spots will be the Dallas/Forth Worth airport. The shopping malls at which machines can be seen include Oaks shopping center in Thousand Oaks and The Shops at Mission Viejo. Both are situated in California. This news is something really cool news for the fashion lovers. You can now decorate and beautify your nails by the nail polish giant’s nail polishes at airports too. Wow! that is cool!
The technology support is by ZoomSystems, the automated retail specialist. The company has done a similar successful project with Benefit Cosmetics last year. The collaboration developed standalone beauty retail kiosks named “Glam Up & Away”. It was successfully installed at various airports around the U.S. Jack Lawrence, CEO of ZoomSystems said“ We are thrilled to be joining forces with Essie in building a new distribution channel for their Essie brand of products throughout the United States.”
The famous beauty brand L’Oréal’ is also joining the league. All famous fashion brands are offering customers with on-the-go services. As we have seen Sephora’s has already started black-and-white units in airports and in J.C. Penney stores.
