Manicure steps usually include: filing and shaping nails edge, cutting and pushing cuticles from the root of the nails, buffing the surface of the nails to smooth them before the nail varnish application.
Different types of manicures include:
French manicure – the nail tips are white with the rest of the nail natural colour; the tips can be natural and painted white or acrylic tips that are glued to the natural nail.
Gel manicure – similar to basic manicure but as the last step gel polish is applied that requires curing under a special lamp; gel manis tend to last longer than basic ones and are less likely to chip.
Paraffin dip is used to soften the skin and it is heated to high temperature to enable better absorption of essential oils, great treatment for overworked hands leaving them smooth and soft
Manicure for men – basic manicure includes cutting and buffing the nails and possibly finishing it with a natural varnish with just a clear base coat and top coat for protection.
