In the modern world dozens of options are available for dressing up one's nails. The fashion world has been changed thanks to the technology that has provided the tools for mounting the art of nail. Manicure, one of the major ways of beautifying a woman, is a cosmetic treatment for the fingernails and hands. Manicures often include the filing, polishing and painting of fingernails. It can be a treatment both for the hands and the nails.

On the other hand, pedicure is a similar treatment but it is performed on the feet.  Both the manicures and pedicures keep nails clean and hands and feet looking healthy and personable. They're also very comforting.

There are basically two procedures. On the whole, the manicure gives a natural look and the best way to achieve the proper look is getting a manicure at a salon. However, one can also do it at home.

Pedicure process

A pedicure is performed on the feet, which is predominantly to improve the appearance of the feet and their nails. Basically, it is a manicure for the feet. A pedicure can be helpful because it can prevent nail diseases and nail disorders. The structure of the nail, composition of cosmetics to be used in a pedicure and the difference between nail diseases and nail disorders are needed to be considered for the pedicure.

For a pedicure you have to have towels, cotton balls, toenail clippers, lotion, cuticle pusher, cuticle cream, acetone, orangewood sticks, antibacterial soap, foot bath, white block buffer. Besides the nail cosmetics you need are base coat, cuticle creams, cuticle oil, cuticle remover, liquid nail polish, nail dryer, nail bleach, nail conditioner, dry nail polish, polish thinner and polish remover.

Important nail care tips

The nail care helps protect the ends of the fingers and toes from trauma. Some important nail care tips are given below:

  • Use nail polish remover once a week as most nail polish removers will dry nails out. Use a hand cream or lotion after washing hands as soaps tend to cause nails and skin very dehydrated.
  • Prior to going for sleep try to use moisturizer each night.
  • Do not use nail polish or metal instruments on the nail surface to push back the cuticles. Try to avoid using nail tips to unfasten knots or loosen shoe laces.
  • Instead of fingers try to use a pen, pencil or some other things while dialling telephone. Never use your nails in place of a knife or razor to open boxes or packages. Don't use your nails as screw drivers or apple corers. Use the finger pads when picking up or handling objects or while typing.
  • Always use rubber gloves when handling household cleaners. Gloves also give the nails a bit of padding, but don't assume they are now impervious to breaks. Despite all your efforts, you may break one of your nails. It happens, sometimes.
  • Stop nail biting. Keep your nails out of your mouth. Biting nails can damage the nail and the cuticle leading to an uneven nail growth. Try an anti-biting nail paint that tastes absolutely disgusting, but will stop you putting your fingers in your mouth so often.

Nail Care Products

For clean and attractive nails you need choosing nail care products. The required products are nail cream, nail polish remover, cuticle treatment, nail enhancer, nail fungus remover, nail whitener, nail strengtheners, nail files, nail care kits and nail tools. All these things are available in cosmetic shops.

For conclusion

Maintaining healthy natural nails is not as complicated. It is actually more important that nails are kept flexible and moisturized. Lastly, one thing to be noted regular use of nail polish can cause a yellowing discoloration of the nails. This is not considered damaging, but is useful to keep in mind if you prefer the natural look. In that case using colour infrequently is better.
