Manicure helps your nails and hands be healthy and look beautiful using special tools and luxurious creams by Marie-Stella-Maris. A manicure improves the texture and health of your fingernails and skin on your hands while also making them seem polished and pretty.
It is a very soothing procedure, the nail tech will gently soften and remove dead skin from your cuticle using a cuticle remover and a cuticle pusher. A base coat will be applied after a nail file is used to produce the ideal nail shape to match your natural nail. To finish off, a top coat will be added for extra shine. Depending on what you have done, a manicure might last anywhere from 10-20 minutes.
A pedicure is a therapeutic treatment for your feet that removes dead skin, softens hard skin and shapes and treats your toenails. A good foot treatment is very relaxing and feels heavenly. However, pedicure procedures differ from kind of polish to massage, therefore the nail tech will advise you of the different treatments we offer.
A traditional pedicure begins with a relaxing foot soak or spa treatment. To soften the skin, your feet are immersed and washed in warm, fragrant water using Marie-Stella-Maris soap and rose petals. Depending on your treatment of choice, you will have a choice to create your own scrub and foot mask.
To freshen and soften your skin, creams and scent oils are rubbed into your foot. A good pedicure can leave your feet looking and feeling amazing.
