Manicures are a big business, partially because there are many types and upgrades available.   A straight forward manicure involves a cleansing and a cuticle treatment, plus application of colour nail polish.  The popular upgrade is a French manicure which involves white tips and an overall clear coat.


The benefits of a Manicure is well-cared for hands, cuticles and nails. The subtle benefit of manicures is that they can a relaxing escape that is more affordable than a visit to a Spa.  Women aren't the only ones who enjoy manicures - businessmen also get them so their hands are clean and attractive. One perk is that manicures don't take long, so they can be squeezed in during a lunch hour.  Regular maintenance having your nails regularly trimmed and inspected for hangnails or fungus keeps them clean and healthy whilst manicure products hydrate and exfoliate the skin on the hands and surrounding the nails.
