About Manicure & Pedicure
What does a manicure/pedicure consist of?
A manicure traditionally involves the buffing and shaping of the nails, pushing back of the cuticles and application of nail polish to the fingertips. A pedicure is the same, but sometimes involves hard skin removal with an electronic foot file.
How to give yourself a manicure/pedicure at home
Begin with clean, trimmed fingernails and shape them straight across, smoothing the edges with a nail file. Never trim your nails around as this can cause an ingrown nail. Apply cuticle cream and push back your cuticles, then buff the nails to create a smooth base for the polish. Try our Revlon Shine Addict Nail Buffer
to achieve shiny, healthy looking nails. Lastly, if you wish to, apply a coat of your favourite nail polish.
Repeat these steps for your pedi, but begin with the Remington REVEAL Perfect Pedi
foot file to get your feet feeling soft and pedi ready.
Which type of foot file is best for me?
Brands create different dry skin buffers to suit different needs. When shopping for a foot file, it is worth considering the following factors:
For calluses and heels - Try our Rio Rapid Heel Foot Smoother Electric File
or our BaByliss TrueSmooth Simply Soft Pedicure
For larger patches of dry skin - Try our Remington REVEAL Perfect Pedi
or our B-Pure Purepedi Electronic Pedicure System
