The idea of manicures and pedicures, or manis-pedis, was brought to America in the 19th century. They grew in popularity once acrylic was discovered (which was an accident!) and make-up companies discovered how to make clear polish based on pigment rather than paint.
A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment of the hands and fingernails. Manicures typically consist of the filing and shaping of the free edge of the nail, the pushing and clipping of the cuticle, and the application of nail polish. Nails and fingertips may be treated with various lotions to soften skin around the nail.
The word pedicure is derived from the Latin words pedis, which means “of the foot”, and cura, which means “care”. The art of pedicures dates back to ancient Egypt, when both men and women painted their nails. Egyptian royalty commonly painted their toenails to boost their sex appeal, while soldiers believed it to be a talisman and painted their toes before going off to war.
During a pedicure, care is provided for the toenails as well as to the legs and feet. Dead skin cells are exfoliated from the bottom of the feet using a pumice stone, with a focus on high calloused areas. The skin of the lower leg and feet are commonly massaged with a granular exfoliation scrub and moisturizing cream.
