Regular manicures and pedicures have health and aesthetic benefits.
Manicures and pedicures can help to improve the functioning of the hands and feet by relieving stiffness in joints and muscles. The exfoliating process helps to remove dead skin cells from the feet, leaving them feeling smoother, softer and more nourished. The massaging process helps to stimulate circulation in the body which promotes a healthier complexion as well as preventing excess fluid build-up in the extremities.
A manicure is a cosmetic treatment for the fingernails, while a pedicure involves the toenails. Both remove calluses, shape and paint the nails, treat cuticles and help remove dead skin. A manicure includes filing and shaping of your nails, as well as filing off any discoloration or ridges you might have on your cuticles so that they look healthy. A pedicure usually involves removing excess skin from around your toes using an emery board or pumice stone to smooth out rough areas; then soaking them in warm water with added salts that soften calluses further before finally massaging lotion into dry feet using moisturizing cream soaks them up like a sponge!
A manicure may be followed by the application of gel polish
Gel polish is the most popular choice for both manicures and pedicures. It dries quickly, lasts longer than regular nail polish (about two weeks) and does not chip or peel off easily.
The brush stroke of this type of manicure is generally more subtle, as opposed to a more distinct look from acrylic nails.
