Keeping Your Nails Trimmed and Shaped
Trimming and shaping with nail implements
is an important part of any manicure and pedicure. After all, your nails can't look their best if they're overly long or misshapen. Nail clippers make removing length quick and easy, and nail scissors allow you to control your cuts to enhance the shape of your nails while you trim. Once your nails are cut, you can use nail files to remove sharp edges and perfect overall nail shape. Removing or pushing back your cuticles with nail implements or cuticle treatments can also help to improve the appearance of your nails.
Prettying Your Nails with Polish
There are a number of ways that you can add a little color to your nails. You can use nail polish
products like base coats, nail enamel and top coats to paint each fingernail and toenail. There are hundreds of nail polish products available, including gel polishes, which provide an extra durable, chip-resistant finish. If you're looking for a faster way to complete your mani-pedi, you can use polish strips or stickers
, which you simply press in place to add colors and patterns to your nails. To add length, try artificial nails that press or glue onto your fingers and toes.
Completing Your Mani-Pedi
During a professional mani-pedi, a nail technician does more than simply care for your nails. Your hands and feet also get some attention, and you can find products that will allow you to enjoy the same pampering at home. You can use foot treatments
, spa gloves and other products to soften and exfoliate, and there are even nail treatments available to help you address problems like poor growth or frequent breakage.
