The word 'manicure' is derived from the Latin word 'manus' (meaning -hand) cure (care).

A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands. A home manicure can treat just the hands, just the nails, or both. A standard manicure usually includes filing and shaping of the nails and the application of polish, but there are also speciality manicures, like: Salon Manicure, French Manicure, Spa Manicure. Treatments for hands usually include soaking in a softening substance and application of hand lotion.

Purpose of Manicure:

  • Prevent hang - nail formation.
  • Prevents nail damages like splits, tears, and fragile tips.
  • The accompanying massage of the hands improve and increase the blood circulation, suppleness and flexibility of the hands and wrist.
  • Discourages wrinkling of the skin on the hand, which is one of the first body part to show the sign of aging.
