Nail Technology is the study and art of manicure and pedicure. A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands enjoyed by both sexes. A manicure can treat just the hands, just the nails, or both. A standard manicure usually includes filing and shaping of the nails and the application of polish. Some specialty manicures, such as the French Manicure, may also be offered. Treatments for hands usually include soaking in a softening substance and application of hand lotion. The word “manicure” comes from the Latin “manus”, meaning “hand,” and “cura” meaning “care”.
A similar treatment performed on the feet is a pedicure. A pedicure is a way to improve the appearance of the feet, and their nails. It basically is a manicure for the feet. The word pedicure comes from the Latin words “pes”, which means “foot”, and “cura”, which means “care”. It also means the care of the feet and toenails. A pedicure can be helpful because it can prevent nail diseases and nail disorders.
