A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands performed either at home or in a nail salon by a nail technician. A manicure treatment can be just for the hands or nails, or can be for both. A common manicure found is the filing, shaping of the nails and the application of polish. There are also manicure services that are specialties for the hands and feet. For the hands, the soaking of a softening substance and the application of a lotion is a common specialty. Another common specialty is applying a similar treatment to the feet and toenails. This is called a pedicure. The word manicure derives from Latin: manus for hand, cura for care. In addition to the filing, polishing, and painting of fingernails, a manicure may also include the application of artificial nail tips, acrylics or artificial nail gels. Some manicures can include the painting of pictures or designs on the nails or applying small decals or imitation jewels. In many areas, manicurists are licensed and follow regulation. Since skin is manipulated and is sometimes trimmed, there is a certain risk of spreading infection when tools are used across many people and, therefore, sanitation is a serious issue.

In India, henna was used for manicure. The term mehendi, used synonymously for henna, derives from the Sanskrit mehandika. Much of the modern revival of henna derives from its popularity in India. These days ladies seem to very concerned about their fingernail and toe nails, so much so, they spent a lot of time and money on manicure and pedicure.

Manicure and pedicure are done to keep your hand or nails clean and hygienic which reflects your personality too. Though it is costly if you do it on parlours you can do it at home too with the help of few easy to use tools which you can easily get online.
