However, for the first time having got into a beauty salon, you will get confused in a variety of offered kinds of manicure. So that you can choose one of them, you need to study in detail the varieties of this action.
Classics of the genre
Classical edging (aka - wet) manicure -a standard service that was part of the price list of Soviet hairdressing salons, when other types of this cosmetic procedure were not even known to our young ladies. Nail plates are cleaned of lacquer residues, if they were previously covered with such. With the help of a sand, glass or metal nail file they are given the desired shape (ideally - oval). Ask the wizard not to use the metal tool, because from such nail files the nails begin to separate and crumble. A fine-grained coating fraction is preferred for thin marigolds. Brushes of hands are thoroughly washed with soap, wiped and put them into a cosmetic tray with hot water. At your request, essential oils or a bubbling ball can be added to it to soften the skin. The rougher the skin of the hands, the hotter the liquid must be. After 10 minutes, steaming is stopped and further processing of the nails is started. Wet plates can not be filed in any case - this contributes to their separation. On the cuticle (the skin that is in the nail hole), apply a softening cream or balm, after which it is removed with scissors or tweezers-pliers. This process is rather painful and traumatic - if the master dishonestly refers to the sterilization of the instruments, he can easily infect the infection during cuticle circumcision. On the nail, absorbed into the water during the "soaking" in the bath, spray-drying is applied. What is this for? Water from the nail plate evaporates within 24 hours after the manicure while simultaneously forming on the lacquer coating bubbles and facilitating the appearance of chips. Next, the master grinds his nails and applies a base under the varnish. The use of colored lacquer, rhinestones and drawings - at the request of the client. This method is well combined with hot manicure. Water in the bath replaces the oil composition with the addition of vitamins and essential oils. This ceremony is akin to aromatherapy: you enjoy the scents of roses, ylang-ylang and patchouli, while the master gently massages the skin and rubs the firming lotion into the nails.
Vip service: manicure de lux
Advanced version of classic manicuresuggests a whole range of procedures aimed at improving the appearance of the hands and nail plates. Massage with essential oils, wraps, paraffin therapy, application of professional carers such as therapeutic masks and anti-age serums. In fact, most of them you can easily repeat at home if you want. Interest is the session of "sealing" the nails, from it you should not give up in any case. This is a real rehabilitation of neglected, laminated and deformed plates. They are lubricated with medicinal compositions with inclusions of vitamins, natural pearlescent powders, quartz, malachite. A fixer is applied from above, preventing the washing of useful substances. Repeat this operation on a monthly basis and you will not know any problems with the nails.
Unedged types of manicure: European and hardware
"Bloodless" ways of removing the cuticle, beyondDepending on the technique of manicure, based on a single principle: excess skin is softened, then pushed aside without cutting. In the case of a hardware version, it is "removed" by a grinding nozzle on a special machine, while the European version does not assume its elimination at all. The hardware manicure does not require preliminary steaming, it is performed on dry nails. The procedure takes quite a bit of time due to the fact that the sawing, grinding and polishing are performed not by the hand of the master, but by means of the device, the nozzles of which rotate at a speed of 10-20 thousand revolutions. Due to the fact that the machine for "automatic" care is relatively inexpensive, many are trying to use it at home. However, if you did not finish the relevant courses, do not put on experiments. Diamond and sapphire tips at such speed of revolutions can jump off the surface of the plate or processed corn and cause serious injury. Do not try to combine such kinds of manicure, as hardware and edging, in any case it is impossible - the use of nozzles on a wet surface is not allowed. European manicure can not serve as an alternative to edging if you are a rare visitor in a beauty salon. It does not provide for the removal of corns and burrs, nor the release of the nail base from the overgrown cuticle. The need to alternate it with the classic will disappear only in the case of regular and thorough care of the skin of the hands and nails. Peel in the substrate soften the gel with fruit acids, and then shift with a wooden stick. Dirt under the fingernails is removed with a soft brush and soap solution. The effect of light peeling is achieved by using a scrub with polymer particles. After polishing, the nail is covered with a foundation or medical varnish.
Relax for the full program: spa manicure
At its execution the master combines the European andedged manicure, leaving or cutting the cuticle at the request of the client. After the treatment of the nail's substrate, chemical peeling follows - a composition with dairy and AHA-acids is applied to the skin of the hands to remove dead cells. The spa manicure ends with acupuncture massage and stone therapy.

You in fact know, what for care of the face the average Japanese uses more than 15 cosmetic agents? And the Japanese manicure provides for the use of more than 25 preparations and formulations! First, the master diagnoses the condition of each nail, radiating it with special lamps and applying reagents. Then he makes up a personal list of medical cosmetics, and in some cases he advises to sit on a special diet (if the condition of the nails is critical). Nails and hands are massaged with keratin lotion, degrease with paper napkins and apply a special mineral foundation. It fills the microcracks and aligns the surface of the nail.
