“Women are now looking to get youthful skin on their hands as well as their faces. Many of my clients have had their hands treated with Radiesse [an injectible filler] at their doctor’s office to get rid of wrinkles and add volume. They love to show off their new hands by indulging in on-trend manicures with bright colors and unique details.” —Lisa Jachno

In cold weather, bring plastic wrap to your pedicure to help avoid smudges. Before you leave the salon, ask the technician to put a layer of cuticle oil on your newly polished toes. Then wind the plastic wrap around them before you put tights, socks, or shoes back on. Pedicure socks have openings for toes and can be worn with flip-flops. Or slip your feet into special pedicure boots that have a front flap that leaves your toes exposed.

"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.
Nail polish (also known as nail varnish or nail enamel) is a lacquer that can be applied to the human fingernail or toenails to decorate and protect the nail plates. The formulation has been revised repeatedly to enhance its decorative effects, and to suppress cracking or flaking. Nail polish consists of a mix of an organic polymer and several other components, depending on the brand.

Nail polish originated in China and dates back to 3000 BC. Around 600 BC, during the Zhou dynasty, the royal house preferred the colors gold and silver. However, red and black eventually replaced these metallic colors as royal favorites. During the Ming dynasty, nail polish was often made from a mixture that included beeswax, egg whites, gelatin, vegetable dyes, and gum arabic.
"I would never recommend doing either of these treatments as a DIY at home because for both treatments, there are chemical products that can harm skin or the nail plate if not properly applied. Even professional grade products and products marketed for at-home use contain harming chemicals, so it's just safer to go to a salon for both gel and dip treatments."
“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.
“For pumice stones or emery boards, if you are not sure of the cleanliness of the salon, you should really bring your own or ask them to use a disposable one that they open in front of you,” Katta said. “If they are using a reusable metal file, you need to make sure it is properly sterilized in an autoclave. If it is not properly sterilized, you can pass viruses or bacteria from one person to another.”

After using it a few times, I thought I should note that with two coats, it still looks pretty streaky and the polish is a bit too thick to get a really even coat each time. The picture shows what it looks like after three coats, what I'm unable to show is that it's still not completely hardened after a coat of Seche Vite fast-drying top coat and 45 minutes. I'm going to add a few drops of OPI polish thinner and try again... I'll update if I can get it to go on better after thinning slightly.
I had had my eye on this cheerful pink polish for a while, but with the vast color options OPI provides, I kept running across other hues I could not pass up. After debating on different pink shades for the entire summer, I could no longer put this one off, and wow, have I been missing out! My only upset regarding this purchase is that I didn't buy it sooner and have this perky shade to sport the entire summer! It's a ridiculously obnoxious pink that I feel ladies of all ages can find endearing when they want to feel a little more feminine. It does take at least 2 coats to cover your strokes, or maybe it's only a problem for an amateur like myself, but the end product is well worth the layers! OPI is always my go-to brand and they never disappoint!
Calluses and corns are hardened skin that can crack and hurt if they get too thick. During a pedicure, don't let the salon technician use a razor on your feet. Razors raise the risk of infection. At home, soak your feet in warm water for at least five minutes. Then use a foot file, pumice stone, or exfoliating scrub to remove calluses. Don't go barefoot, either -- it can cause calluses.
