Royal protocol is a code of conduct for state occasions; it's etiquette, and frankly has nothing to do with what color pedicure Meghan, or any royal for that matter, wears to a charity theater event. — Caroline Hallemann, Town & Country, "No, Meghan Markle Didn't Break Royal Protocol With Her Dark Nail Polish," 17 Jan. 2019 And unlike a nail salon or a full-service spa, Sport Clips doesn’t have to worry about potential health-and-safety minefields like hair-color chemicals, waxing and pedicure tubs. — Audrey Dutton, idahostatesman, "Is your salon clean and safe?

Before all else, a manicure lover dreams of her fashion statement.  Is yours the French manicure? Depending on who you ask, this pale pink polish with a white tip is either classic or old-fashioned.

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.
Scrub your feet with a pumice stone or foot file while they are wet. A pumice stone is a light, porous volcanic rock often used to remove dead skin cells and calluses. You can also use a foot file to do this. To use, hold the tool up to your foot, and quickly move it back and forth. It is best to work in about 1 in (2.5 cm) areas at a time. Apply steady pressure, but be careful not to push too hard.[5]
Nail polish remover is an organic solvent that may also include oils, scents, and coloring. Nail polish remover packages may include individual felt pads soaked in remover, a bottle of liquid remover used with a cotton ball or cotton pad, or a container filled with foam into which one inserts a finger and twists it until the polish comes off. Choosing a type of remover is determined by the user's preference, and often the price or quality of the remover.

For those looking to make a statement with their nails, go chrome. The mirror manicure was named a trend by both Pinterest and Reader's Digest. To achieve the look, each nail is first cleaned and shaped. Then a coat of black polish is applied, cured, and buffed. Next, top coat is applied and cured, before putting on a mirror powder. It is sealed with a top coat, cured, and buffed. It finishes with a gel top coat to create a shiny mirrored effect.
"Excess exposure to chemicals such as those found in household cleaners can lead to weakened enhancements or brittle natural nails. I always recommend wearing protective gloves to protect both the enhancement, your natural nails and the surrounding skin from weakening, which could lead to painful breakage. Restoring hydration after the treatment and during the wear time will help a lot of the problems that can arise from the dip powder enhancements. Try to apply cuticle oils and high quality moisturizers multiple times a day."

As a self-professed beauty lover, I pride myself on staying on top of the latest fads in the makeup, hair, and nail world—after all, I’m usually the person my family and friends run to when they need advice on getting a certain hairstyle or testing the makeup waters with new products. But when ELLE.com’s Senior Beauty Editor, Kristina Rodulfo, mentioned dip powder nails to me, I had to admit defeat—I never heard of the trend and was eager to find out what it entailed.
A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands performed at home or in a nail salon. A manicure consists of filing and shaping the free edge, pushing and clipping (with a cuticle pusher and cuticle nippers) any nonliving tissue (but limited to the cuticle and hangnails), treatments with various liquids, massage of the hand, and the application of fingernail polish. When the same is applied to the toenails and feet, the treatment is referred to as a pedicure.
