Manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands.

The word “manicure” comes from the Latin manus, meaning “hand,” and cura meaning “care”. A manicure can be a treatment for 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. Treatments for hands usually include soaking in a softening substance and application of hand lotion. A similar treatment performed on the feet is  called pedicure.

Manicures often include the filing, polishing, and painting of fingernails. A manicure may also include  some nail art process the application of artificial nail tips, acrylics or artificial nail gels. Some manicures can include the painting of pictures or designs on the nails or applying small decals or imitation jewels.

  1. This may not be the place to ask this question, but does anyone know what would make acrylic nails glow in the dark for several hours in the middle of the night. Had this happen last night after I had removed the polish from artificial nails. It was a florescent light on all nails – believe it or not! Looked like Halloween. Thanks.

  2. i’ve been getting a manicure every week since i was about 21 at $11.50 each time; im now 25 years old and $2,392 later, my nails look AMAZING! Totally worth the $11.50. Your nails are noticed and people who notice them do treat you differently – in a good way… Not expensive to have a good look.
