The good kind of manicure

Are you seeking the healthiest manicure for your nails? You're not alone. Many of us are aware of the potential damage certain manicures can cause, especially if not done with care. Finding a manicure that both beautifies and strengthens your nails can be challenging.

However, not all manicures are harsh on your nails; some can even provide nourishment and therapeutic benefits. Luxurious manicures, for example, can help soothe aching joints, making them an ideal treat for yourself after a stressful week.

The Basic Manicure

Sometimes, simplicity is key. A basic manicure, when done with the right polishes, can be the healthiest option for your nails. Opting for the 'right polishes,' such as nail growth or breathable polishes, is crucial, as many conventional polishes contain harsh chemicals that can weaken nails over time. Choosing an organic polish enriched with vitamins can help nourish brittle nails and maintain the strength of healthy nails.

A standard manicure typically includes trimming, shaping, filing, buffing, cuticle trimming, and cuticle oil application. You can also opt for optional polish or gel nail polish, but it's essential to inquire about the type of polish your salon uses or select your nail polish carefully to minimize damage. Some salons offer additional pampering, such as a warm soak or wrap, followed by lotion application and a hand massage, which you can also replicate at home for optimal nail health.

Therapeutic Manicures

Have you ever experienced a hand massage during your manicure? It's a memorable experience, but what if a manicure could go beyond that and alleviate joint and muscle pain as well?

Therapeutic manicures, such as a paraffin manicure, can offer relief for sore muscles and joints. Paraffin wax is heated and applied to your hands, opening pores, and hydrating both nails and skin. This process not only increases circulation but also leaves your hands feeling soft and rejuvenated without causing any damage to your nails or skin. 

Another must do to ensure you get the best manicure is ensuring the salon you visit has a council approved health and hygiene licence and you have you own nail file and buffer block. These can be kept at the salon in individual pouches for future use.  Also that you are seeing a qualified manicurist / therapist.

Go on its time for a treat!!
