A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands performed at home or in a nail salon. A manicure consists of filing and shaping the free edge, pushing and clipping (with a cuticle pusher and cuticle nippers) any nonliving tissue (but limited to the cuticle and hangnails), treatments with various liquids, massage of the hand, and the application of fingernail polish. When the same is applied to the toenails and feet, the treatment is referred to as a pedicure. Some manicures include painting pictures or designs on the nails, or applying small decals or imitation jewels. Other nail treatments may include the application of artificial gel nails, tips, or acrylics, which may be referred to as French manicures.

Do not cut your cuticles – People often think that the cuticles will keep growing such that the nails get an unsightly appearance. They then cut the cuticles. This could be painful and is also unhealthy. All the effects surrounding the cutting of cuticles are negative. Do not allow this nails attendant to cut your cuticles. Cutting could leave an infection as the space is left exposed and bacteria can enter or anything else. One can also get ridges and white spots as well as white lines which are irritating nail problems.
Use an Orange Stick – Using a wooden orange stick will help you push back your cuticles such that they will not hurt. This is a good alternative to cutting the cuticles as the space is not left bare and infections can be prevented. People often cut them thinking that they will keep growing which is not true. They only grow to a certain length but do not go pas your finger ends. Cutting them also makes the hard instead of being soft which causes irritation and uncomfortability.
Moisturize – Moisturizing helps to keep the cuticles soft. You may have realized that even as the rest of your skin around your nails is soft, the cuticles may not be as sift. To deal with this during or even after this nails experience, you can make it a habit to moisturize regularly.
It is also important to avoid disturbing the cuticles every time. This normally results in irritation around the nails. At times it ends up being painful for you. Getting a bacterial infection because of cutting the cuticles could hamper the growth of your nail. You need to keep them safe so as to let them do their jobs and protect the nail matrix.
