A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the nails, typically performed on the hands. It involves filing, shaping and polishing the nails, as well as treating the cuticles, the skin around the nails. It also can involve the application of nail polish or other decorative nail art.
A basic manicure often includes:
Hand and arm massage
Nail polish application
A spa or luxury manicure may include additional treatments such as:
Exfoliating hand scrub
Moisturizing hand mask
Hot towel wrap
Paraffin wax dip
Manicures can be done at a salon, spa, or at home. They are a great way to keep the nails looking healthy and well-groomed, and can also be a relaxing and pampering experience.
It's important to note that if you have any fungal or bacterial infection on your nails or skin, it's best to avoid getting a manicure until the infection is treated.
