“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.

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.

People have been pedicuring their nails for more than 4,000 years. In southern Babylonia, noblemen used solid gold tools to give themselves manicures and pedicures. The use of fingernail polish can be traced back even further. Originating in China in 3000 BC, nail color indicated one’s social status, according to a Ming Dynasty manuscript; royal fingernails were painted black and red. Ancient Egyptians have been manicuring all the way back to 2300 BC.

“The typical infections we would be concerned about with nail salons are the standard run-of-the-mill bacterial infections like staph or strep that occur when you have a breakdown in the skin,” he said. “We are also concerned about more exotic infections like atypical microbacterial infections—which are basically cousins of tuberculosis—and those have been reported in nail salons and those are typically difficult to diagnose and they require very long treatment on antibiotics. We are also concerned about fungal infections.”
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.

An American manicure is similar to the French, but the shape and color of the nails differ. In this particular style, the tips are sometimes rounded, and use neutral or off white colors on the tips, instead of the drastic bright whites used in the French manicure. This can be worn in the classic style or made modern with some well placed glitter polish.

Social media has given rise to the nail art culture that allows users to share their pictures about their nail art. "WWD reports nail polish sales hit a record $768 million in the U.S. in 2012, a 32% gain over 2011, despite a cluttered market that seemingly sees a new launch each week."[13] Several new polishes and related products came on to the market in the second decade of the twenty-first century as part of the explosion of nail art, such as nail stickers (either made of nail polish or plastic), stencils, magnetic nail polish,[14] nail pens, glitter and sequin topcoats, nail caviar (micro beads), nail polish marketed for men, scented nail polish, and color changing nail polish (some which change hue when exposed to sunshine, and ranges which change hue in response to heat).[year needed] Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube have been popular social media sites on which many people around the world are posting their unique nail art.

Ancient Babylonian men manicured and colored their nails using kohl, with different colors representing different classes. The upper echelons wore black while the lower classes wore green. They also created the world's first, and most lavish, manicure set — the tools were made from solid gold! Kelly Osbourne and her $250,000 manicure have nothing on these guys.
