Trilantic Europe has acquired a majority stake in Passione Unghie with financing provided by Eurazeo and H.I.G. Whitehorse

Passione Unghie

Passione Unghie is a 100% digitally native nail care brand with a primary focus on UV-based products, with semi-permanent nail builders and gel polish being the core products. The company represents the leading e-commerce disruptor in the Italian nail care market and is the only platform of its kind in Europe with operations in Spain, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

The Deal

Trilantic Europe acquired a majority stake in Passione Unghie from Orienta Capital Partners and founders to accelerate the company’s growth strategy and actively support the expansion of Passione Unghie’s e-commerce platform across new geographies. Thanks to its track record, Trilantic Europe will work in conjunction with Passione Unghie’s management and Orienta Capital Partners to further facilitate the strong development of Passione Unghie. Lincoln International acted as debt advisor to find the most adequate financing package to acquire the company.
