Israeli startup Nimble announced on Monday that it has raised $10 million led by venture capital firms Entrée Capital and LionBird. The round also included participation from IBI Tech fund, Aristagora VC and private investors, including Allot founder Yigal Yaacobi, InnerActive founder Ziv Elul and Moovit founder Nir Erez.

Nimble has created the world’s first device that uses artificial intelligence to self-paint and dry nails in 10 minutes per hand. The company launched, in addition, a Kickstarter campaign on April 12 with a goal of raising at least $25,000 for product production and accelerating growth. Within three weeks of the campaign, the company has raised more than $1.4 million in funding, with over 4,000 customers purchasing the product. The company promises a professional-looking manicure in three easy steps, with the device autonomously painting nails using the precise amount of nail polish for a perfect manicure.

The Kickstarter campaign will continue through May, and the product will then go into production and be available to consumers by the end of the year.

Nimble, which currently has 12 employees in Israel and New York, was founded at the end of 2016 by CEO Omri Moran, VP R&D Avichay Mor-Yosef and CTO Ron Miller.

“The idea for Nimble came from having to wait for a long time for a date with my wife-to-be,” explained Moran. “When I asked her why she took so long, she explained that the reason was her manicure. We went on to talk during the date about all the troubles caused by manicures and I understood that a technological solution was really necessary.”
