Osterman, the president of the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine and the team podiatrist for the Wizards, has noticed how the NBA occupational hazard of often wearing new shoes can partially explain the trauma on players' feet. The shoes never quite break in, and the skin around the foot has to grow thick layers to absorb the excessive stopping and starting on the court. Over time, the pressure causes calluses to build up on the bottom of the foot, and painful ingrown toenails also develop. But unlike in past generations, Osterman believes today’s players are more inclined to fix these problems with a proper pedicure.

"We had to wait 30 minutes she was behind but didn’t come and tell us because she was alone in a place. We got hot tea which was nice. Its not the most comfortable chair this place is for skin care really not for nails. Overall she was nice oh and a whole building was super cold which she is not able to control. It is a shared office situation.."-Krisztina K.

If you are someone who gets bored easily, this next style is for you. It has been dubbed the one week manicure, as it is designed to stay on for seven to ten days. According to Refinery29, CND's Vinylux polishes have incredible staying power and can be removed with a normal nail polish remover. Plus, since there is no need for a basecoat, the application process is simpler and faster.


“When you choose a nail salon, you need to make sure it is licensed by the state,” Ostrosky said. “Having a state license means there are certain hygiene standards and that the salon has been inspected. It gives you assurance that there is a level of cleanliness there and you want to make sure that the actual beauty technician who works on you is licensed, as well. That means they have been trained in sterilization and technique.”

“Lots of dirt and other gross things accumulate under your nails during the course of the day but it just takes a quick scrub with a nail brush to get it out. So if you come in and say ‘Oh my nails are so gross’ I will clean them out for you but I hope you’d tip a little bit more after that.” —Amy Harold Get ready for your next manicure with these simple ways to make your nails stronger.
“The first thing is that you really have to look around you and say, ‘If this is what it looks like publicly, if there are any red flags, then what does it look like behind the scenes?’” Katta explained. “You want to look for those obvious things: Are trash cans overflowing? Are there nail clippings or nail filings or debris from a procedure around the work spaces?”

If you've been dreaming of something ultra-pampering (or want to spoil a friend or family member), consider going the hot stone route.

“I hate when nail clients have stiff hands! It’s the worst! To do a good manicure you need to make sure all areas and angles of the nail are covered and if your hands are stiff or rigid that definitely limits my ability to do that.”  —Heather Norton, a cosmetologist and nail technician in Denver, Colorado Follow these other tricks to make your manicure last longer.

Regardless of the reason for the beauty treatment, a manicure forces you to take some time for yourself. How you spend that time is up to you -- rehashing recent dramas with your friend in the adjacent chair or chatting with the manicurist. After all, you and the manicurist practically hold hands, and if you know each other well, you might catch up on life since the last manicure.
