If you are new to receiving manicures, start with a basic manicure, without all the extras. A nail technician will apply a cream, oil, or lotion to the cuticles first, then place the hands into a dish of warm water for about five minutes to soak. After the soaking process is over and cuticles have been tamed, they will dry the hand, and ask what shape and length you prefer. You can choose from square, oval, squoval (a combination of the two), or the popular stiletto.

“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.
“It may feel nice to soak your hands in warm water before your mani but the water actually bloats the nail, causing it to soften and expand. After the manicure, your nails will eventually shrink back down which causes the bond and adhesion of the polish to be compromised, leading to chipping and peeling polish. Bottom line? Dry manicures last longer.” —Lisa Jachno
Nails that have undergone a French manicure are characterized by a lack of artificial base color and white tips at the free edge of the nail. For this reason, they are sometimes referred to as "French tips". The nail tips are painted white, while the rest of the nails are polished in a pink or a suitable nude shade. French manicures can be achieved with artificial nails. However, it is also as common to perform a French manicure on natural nails. Another technique is to whiten the underside of the nail with white pencil and paint a sheer color over the entire nail.
