Nail salons offer different types of manicures and pedicures.

Nail salons also offer hand and feet spa massages, some as complimentary treatments, and others include it in their pamper treatment.
How do you prepare for nails manicure and pedicure?
Ever heard of the saying “cleanliness is next to godliness”? They weren’t just talking about your home. Personal hygiene is extremely important when stepping into a nail salon. That means you as the client have the responsibility to make sure that your hands or feet are cleaned and sanitized before your treatment. You don’t have to go to the extremes to clip and file your nails, as this will most likely be part of your treatment. But basic cleansing and drying off your hands and feet will remove all the dirt, oils and impurities. Try not to over-moisturize your skin before your treatment.

What kind of manicure is best for your nails?
Firstly, you need to understand the difference between the types of manicure treatments. Each treatment has its own pros and cons and will ultimately determine the level of maintenance you can manage. For example, a gel manicure typically last two weeks before you start seeing regrowth and need a soak off. You can’t have this refilled and would need a new set. Acrylic nails or extensions however, last a bit longer, and once you start seeing regrowth, you can easily get them refilled. When choosing what type of manicure would be best for you, also keep in mind how often you use your hands for hard labour and how sensitive your nails are.
