Like all of our other services, our manicures and pedicures are treatment-oriented. What that means is that we first work to make the nail really healthy. To do that, we offer about 15 types of basecoats for different types of nails. Jessica Nails first developed their line for post-acrylic nails to build the nail back up, and now there are different base coats for nails that are dry and cracked, active, peeling, yellow, etc.
We use a natural nail drill, which is less invasive than cuticle cutters; it pushes the cuticle back and lifts off excess cuticle. We only clip hangnails. And we don’t use that cheese grater thing (you know what I’m talking about!). We have a great file for feet that is effective without shredding your skin. And then there’s a fabulous enzyme scrub with papaya. Our pedicures can last, seriously, up to 6 weeks. They really do last and to extend it, I recommend giving yourself a thin topcoat the day after your treatment.
So that’s it! If you’re coming in to get a facial, think about treating your hands and feet to the same type of care. You’ll be glad you did.
