WHAT IS A MANICURE TREATMENT?
Manicures are a big business, partially because there are many types and upgrades available. A straight forward manicure involves a cleansing and a cuticle treatment, plus application of colour nail polish. The popular upgrade is a French manicure which involves white tips and an overall clear coat.
WHAT IS A PEDICURE TREATMENT?
A Pedicure is a foot treatment that promotes overall foot and nail health. A pedicure is similar to a manicure with the main difference being that a pedicure is strictly for the feet, while a manicure is done for the hands. The term pedicure comes from the Latin word “pedi” meaning foot and “cure” meaning care. A pedicure helps foot health by preventing a number of nail diseases and disorders when done regularly.
