What should you do before your appointment?
A few days before your appointment, lightly exfoliate the area to remove dead skin cells and prevent ingrown hairs.
The day before your appointment, avoid exfoliation, tanning, or hot baths, as these might make your skin dry or sensitive.
The day of your appointment, come with clean, dry skin. Avoid wearing oils, lotions or creams.
Pedicure History of Nail Care Did Cleopatra Manicure?
Nobility in Babylonia used solid gold tools to mani-pedi. According to a Ming Dynasty manuscript, nail polish has a history dating back even further, to 3000 BC when nail color indicated one’s social status.
Royalty painted their nails black and red; the Egyptians used red to designate the highest social status; military commanders in ancient Egypt and Rome were known to paint their nails to match their lips before going off to battle.
Before nail polish was around, people in India, used henna (a brownish red substance) for their manicure.

Spa Pedicures - Manicures – Whats All the Hype?
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a Spa Pedicure – Manicure or a normal Pedicure – Manicure?
A Spa Pedicure-Manicure is an amazing experience which cleans and removes the dead skin cells from the feet and hands . It helps prevent nail diseases. The pedicure-manicure is also accompanied by a foot-hands massage that rejuvenates the skin as well as relaxing the muscles. But what really sets it apart is the fact that it’ll be a longer service, with more steps — an aromatic exfoliating scrub, hydrating mask, hot towel , to feel more luxurious. In general, they will help to remove excess dead hard skin on the soles of your feet.
The same goes for overgrown cuticles. These will be trimmed not cut (or yanked) off using cuticle nippers not blades. Cuticle remover will be applied first to ensure the area is softened first and care will be taken to rehydrate the area to avoid splitting post treatment.
