What is a manicure?

A manicure is a nail care and beauty procedure aimed at making the nails look neat, healthy, and attractive. Typically, a manicure involves trimming, shaping, polishing, and applying nail polish, along with possible additional care steps. This process can be done in a professional nail salon or at home.

During a manicure, common steps might include:

  1. Trimming and Shaping: First, the nails may be trimmed to the desired length and then shaped using a file into the chosen shape.

  2. Cuticle Trimming and Exfoliation: The manicurist may work on the cuticles and buildup around the nails to ensure cleanliness and health of the nail beds.

  3. Nail Polishing: This may involve using a nail buffer to polish the surface of the nails, making them smoother.

  4. Applying Nail Polish: A significant part of a manicure is applying nail polish. Different colors of nail polish can be chosen, and artistic designs or patterns can be added.

  5. Massage and Care: Some manicure processes may include a massage and application of care products, helping maintain the health of the nails and the skin around them.

  6. Special Treatments: Depending on the need, additional care steps can be added, such as applying strengtheners, nail patches, gel, or acrylic.
