A professional pedicure can help you feel relaxed and pampered. A traditional pedicure often starts with a therapeutic foot bath where your feet are soaked. This is followed by an exfoliating scrub that removes dead skin cells. Cuticles are cut and toenails shaped. Creams and scented oils are massaged into your feet which help soften your skin. Finally, your chosen nail polish is applied resulting in fresh soft and glamourous looking feet.
Pedicures often take around 30-90 minutes, depending on the pedicure chosen.
There are various types of pedicures, these include the French Pedicure which uses long-lasting nail polish to whiten the tips of the toenails and square off the shape.
A popular choice is the gel or shellac pedicure which uses a coloured gel nail polish, this bonded to the nails using UV light to create a glossy finish that can last up to 3 weeks.
Some opt for the luxury pedicure which focuses on the whole foot. This treatment includes a massage, heated towels or a wrap which softens your feet and hydrates your toenails.
