Economy in Cuba
Currently, Cuba is going through one of the strongest economic crises that has brought the shortage of various items such as fuel and food. Likewise, the current situation in Cuba has caused the disappearance of products to fix false nails, preventing Cubans from wearing them.
Undoubtedly, the disappearance of these materials is not the most serious problem in the current situation in the country, however it affects many Cubans. It is no secret to anyone that the islanders are very flirtatious and are always looking to look gorgeous, and one way is to wear false nails.
The trend of wearing false nails does not exist only in Cuba, but in much of the world, so there are various techniques for its installation. In addition, these techniques vary according to the type of material used, which also varies the cost of its installation.
In most cases, women prefer that their nails be made in gel because, although they are more expensive, they look better. However, in Cuba the reality is different since the West Indies prefer to wear acrylic false nails, which are more resistant to daily tasks.
As a result of the difficult situation in Cuba, obtaining acrylic for the preparation of these nails has become quite complicated. Therefore, the few people who sell these types of implements have raised their rates exponentially.
As a result, self-employed people dedicated to providing this type of services have been prevented from working and bringing their livelihoods to their homes. This, without a doubt, is part of the most serious problem of this situation because the hard thing that these workers face right now.
According to the opinion of some stylists who work in the arrangement of false nails in Cuba, providing the usual good service is almost impossible. Undoubtedly, West Indian women are very used to using their acrylic nails because, apart from being durable, they are cheaper.
However, when this material is not scarce, suppliers sell it up to three times its price, forcing self-employed workers to raise their rates. As a result, many clients have chosen to stop getting their nails done as they are unable to pay 8 CUC for the service or 4 CUC for the touch-up.
The situation is even more complicated for stylists after the coronavirus appeared , since for a long time they were unable to work. However, after the resumption of activities in the country, the clientele continues to be low as a result of the high service rates.
Also, other specialists in the arrangement of false nails in Cuba have chosen to work with gel because it is a material that is not in short supply. However, implementation is equally expensive and the service fee could be as high as $ 10; a very high price.
