Men may opt for regular manicures as an easy and relaxing treat; these generally consist of cleaning and buffing the nails before pushing back cuticles and applying a base coat, two layers of nail polish, and top coat. In addition, hand cream or cuticle oil might also be beneficial.

Basic Manicure

Nails can be an expressive way of showing off your style. Thanks to an ever-evolving manicure industry, there are now options to meet every taste imaginable – from basic nail polish to intricate gel extensions and everything in between, it’s never been easier to find the ideal look for any special event or special occasion.

No matter the manicure style you prefer, regularly grooming your nails can bring great rewards. Not only does it show that you take pride in looking presentable but it can also increase blood circulation to your hands and fingertips.

Basic manicure services typically consist of cleaning the nails, trimming cuticles and shaping before polish application. Following this service is typically an relaxing hand massage to increase blood flow to the nails and relax the client. A basic manicure is ideal for people who need their nails to last but don’t require long-lasting colors; typically lasting three to seven days when taken proper care of at home; additionally it is cheaper than other forms of manicures.

Gel Manicure

Gel manicures offer long-lasting wearability, richer pigment saturation, and greater resistance to chipping compared to regular polish. With the coronavirus pandemic keeping us indoors most days, however, visiting the salon for multiple appointments might not be realistic; or you simply may not wish to spend $100 on nails that you may just paint over again in a matter of days.

Gel nails differ from acrylics in that they simply involve painting with nail polish that’s then cured under UV or LED lamps, unlike acrylics which involve applying liquid and powder polymers directly onto natural or artificial nail tips to shape and extend them.

Gel manicures have become increasingly popular due to the extended wear time they offer compared to traditional nail polish and also because these UV-cured coatings protect natural nails more effectively. It should be noted, however, that LED lamps used to cure polish may emit high levels of UVA rays which have been known to cause skin damage.

Acrylic Manicure

Acrylic nails, commonly seen on almond, coffin or stiletto nails, provide strength and lengthen your nail look. Consisting of liquid applied over your natural nail by a combination of liquid and powder application methods, Morgan Dixon from Nailing Hollywood says acrylics are great solutions for people who suffer from fragile or breakable nails – adding that “acrylics provide strength without breaking.”

Preparing for an acrylic manicure involves having your nails cleaned of any existing polish and then soaking them in warm water to soften up and soften up their structure. Your tech will then push back any cuticles; cutting cuticles could lead to infection.

Your manicurist will begin by applying an acrylic base coat, two layers of gel polish, and top coat – and may also include a clear protective top coat to protect the color. According to Hannah Lee from Polished Boutique, an acrylic manicure may last two months with regular fills and fill appointments.

Mineral Manicure

TikTok users have recently shown great appreciation for Japanese manicures that combine natural elements with strength-building effects. According to Gabriella Ferenczi of Figaro London’s nail technician services, one main benefit is strengthening nails. Japanese paste and powder contain beeswax, silica, keratin and various oils for optimal nail health and growth.

Polishes used in this type of manicure contain healthy vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin D to prevent dry, flaky nails. Other ingredients found in this type of manicure include jojoba oil, bamboo extract and ylang-ylang which provide nourishment to both nails and skin.

A manicure involves filing and shaping the free edge of nails, pushing back cuticles with a cuticle pusher or snipping tool (but without trimming), treating nails with various liquids, then applying natural-looking polish (such as Mineral Fusion Olive You or Londontown Sedona).
