What do manicure services include?
For a basic manicure, expect precise nail shaping and filing, cuticle cleaning and softening, as well as buffing and polishing. All these services aim to make your nails look and feel clean, healthy, and presentable for whatever occasion.
If you have extra time to spare, you can also request for something more creative, like luxe nail art, gel polish application, or a relaxing spa oil treatment. Here a couple of manicure services we can help you with and the inclusions for each:
Spa manicure involves more therapeutic practices. Each session typically includes a relaxing soft hand and arm massage that can help alleviate the tiredness and stiffness of your finger joints.
Your nail technician may also apply some aromatic salt scrub to exfoliate and remove dead skin. A spa manicure often concludes with the application of nourishing oils and creams to keep your hands hydrated and moisturised for as long as possible.
A gel manicure is perfect for busy bees and enthusiasts who prefer to keep their nails nicely polished for weeks. While it also includes precise trimming and shaping, the process of nail polishing vastly differs. When you book a gel manicure near you, expect a gel-based nail polishing that is cured using a UV or LED light. Unlike regular polish, these gel manicures can remain chip-free for about 2-3 weeks.
A gel manicure is also recommended for brides-to-be who need to look their absolute best while walking down the aisle. Through the same platform, you can also find nearby wedding photographers who can help capture and document all the magical moments before, during, and after the wedding ceremony!
Paraffin wax manicure
A paraffin wax manicure focuses on nail and skin treatments that can restore and rehydrate your dry skin and nails. For the service, nail technicians use a safe, colourless wax mixed with revitalising oils or aloe vera for a more soothing sensation.
The process starts by soaking or dipping your hands, up to your wrist, into the lukewarm wax. Once fully covered with wax, they are next wrapped in fresh towels, allowing your skin and nails to absorb the treatment. After a while, your manicure specialist then peels off the wax, rubs and kneads your palms, and eventually treats your fingernails with the typical manicure cleaning, shaping, and polishing.
Manicures and pedicures
Are you also wondering if you can book a pedicure on top of your manicure service? Well, the answer is yes! Also called mani-pedi, nail technicians groom both your hands and feet, from fingernails to toenails. Nothing feels better than having complete peace of mind knowing that your nails have been taken care of by expert hands!
