The Mani - Pedi


There is more to a manicure pedicure then we think these days’s, other than the pure visual vanity of pretty nails and feet there is hygiene and well-being to consider. And who doesn’t love a mani-pedi? Maybe those who have uncontrollable tickles,, but the ever so growing popularity with this‘feel good’ services is evident with all the nails bars and cosmetic and non-cosmetic company’s popping up everywhere with new nail products and colors.
















The manicure, Pedicure are important to the health of the fingers, toes and nails, and keeping them groomed i.e. dry cuticles, hang nails removed helps create circulation to the nerve endings. Getting regular mani-pedi’s also prevents any sort of fungus that could get trapped in the toe nail bed particularly in the open toe sandal season. The other benefit is massage “reflexology” and if it not offered in the manicure or pedicure ask the service provider if they can massage your feet or hands or both, there is an incredible amount of toxins that permeate through the hands and feet as well as healing.
















We often forget about our hands and feet which do go through war each and every day, it might be a luxury to pay for beautiful hands and feet but well worth it, and with the many fabulous nail polish colors and company’s to pick from your hands and feet will sure draw attention this summer.
