Manicures and pedicures are spa treatments that leave your hands and feet feeling clean and soothed and you feeling pampered. Choosing the correct type of manicure and pedicure enhances your salon experience. There are different types of manicure and pedicure treatments, and each salon may vary its services. To be certain about the service you are receiving, ask the nail technician for a description of each service.
Regular Manicure and Pedicure
Regular manicures and pedicures provide the most basic nail care at a salon. A regular manicure includes soaking your hands in warm soapy water to soothe and soften dead skin cells. Your fingernails are cleaned, clipped and filed. The nail technician moisturizes your hands and polishes your nails with a base coat, a main coat and top coat. During a regular pedicure, you soak your feet in a warm tub of water. The nail technician scrubs your feet to rid them of any dead skin or imperfections. The technician clips and files your toenails and briefly massages your legs and feet before applying a soothing lotion. Your toenails are painted with a base coat, main coat and top coat of polish.
French Manicure and Pedicure
The French manicure and pedicure is chic and classic. Your hands and feet are treated the same way as they are during a regular manicure and pedicure. The technician applies a polish in a neutral translucent color such as a clear white or pale pink over the entire nail, followed by white polish on the tips of the nails. This style of manicure and pedicure mimics and enhances the look of natural nails.
Spa Manicure and Pedicure
A spa manicure is a longer and more involved treatment for fingernails and toenails than the regular manicure. While it involves the same process as a regular manicure and pedicure, the process finishes with an additional treatment depending on the salon. According to the MySpaGuide website, a glycolic exfoliation or a paraffin wax treatment may be offered as a treatment. "Glycolic exfoliation uses the powerful properties of glycolic acid in a cream or gel to dissolve and remove dead and damaged skin cells.... A paraffin wax treatment involves dipping your hands in a warm paraffin wax solution, then covering your hands in plastic bags, and then in gloves." Either treatment exfoliates your hands and feet, leaving them soft and smooth.
Gel or Shellac Manicure and Pedicure
A gel manicure or pedicure involves a special polish that does not chip for at least two weeks. Your nails are clipped and filed, and hands and feet are moisturized as in a regular manicure or pedicure. The gel polish is colored gel, which looks and goes on like regular polish. After each application of each coat -- base, main and top -- the nail technician puts your nails underneath a UV light to dry the gel, a process known as curing, for 30 seconds to a minute. Nails are completely dry after this process. Salons may offer either gel polish or shellac. Shellac is similar to gel, but is usually priced a little higher because the polish is formulated in a different way than regular gel polish. Shellac takes less time to remove, though there are no noticeable differences between gel and shellac. The removal process can be done at home or at the salon and involves wrapping the nail in acetone using a special nail wrap or cotton ball soaked in acetone and secured with aluminum foil. After a few minutes, the polish is loosened and easily peeled off.
Stone Manicure and Pedicure
A hot stone manicure and pedicure involves all the treatment of a regular manicure and pedicure but with the addition of heated stones the technician places on your hands and feet. The hot stones provide relief for overworked hands and feet.

Skin wrinkles are caused by two main factors: heredity and the environment. There is little you can do about heredity and the natural aging process, but there is something you can do about the other causes. Pollution in the environment, sun exposure and stress can all lead to premature aging of the skin. Using anti aging creams is beneficial for reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The creams are even more effective when combined with regular facials.
Facials counteract the effects of pollutants and sun exposure on your skin. Having regular facials will also help your skin absorb your anti aging creams better. Monthly facials improve elasticity, give your skin a smoother texture and improve the hydration of your skin. In addition, a facial will help remove dead skin which aids in the absorption of other creams or lotions used to combat wrinkles.
The products used for your facial will depend on your skin type. If you have dry skin, a moisturizing mask will be used to help add moisture to the skin. A rich moisturizer will also be used at the end of the treatment. Oil free products will be used for people with oily skin.
Facials can be done at home or by a professional in a salon or spa. Facial massage is very beneficial for wrinkles. The massage increases the blood circulation to the muscles of the face, which helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. There are over one hundred muscles in the face and massage helps to relax these muscles. This is particularly effective for wrinkles that result from muscle contractions, such as laugh lines and worry lines.
If you want to enjoy the benefits of facial massage, visit a salon for your facial. Facial massage is best done by a professional who is knowledgeable in massage techniques. An inexperienced person may actually cause more harm than good. When the muscles are not massaged properly, they sag which can cause wrinkles to be more prominent. The massage is also very relaxing. At some salons and spas, the arms, neck and shoulders are massaged as well. This is great for stress relief.
The basic facial procedure starts by examining the skin. This will help the professional assess the skin and determine the products that will be of the greatest benefit. Steam is then used to open the pores and remove impurities from the skin. A gentle cleanser is then used to clean the skin. This step is followed by a toner that is appropriate for your skin type. A facial mask is used to soothe and refresh the skin as well as to add moisture. At the end of the massage, a moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin type will be applied.
Once you have had your facial, you will want to keep your skin in good condition at home. Use a gentle cleanser that is not drying in the morning and at night. Invest in good quality anti aging creams to minimize wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. It's important to choose creams that are good for your skin type and the condition of your skin.
I've been going to The Nail Pro for longer than I can remember. I know it's been over 8 years and I can't imagine going elsewhere. When I moved to Oshawa, I looked for a shop closer to home and I was disappointed every time. For years now, I have driven from Oshawa to Ajax just to have my nails and eyebrows done. Mackay and Mary, along with many of the other lovely staff there, take excellent care of their clients and do everything they can to make sure everyone leaves happy.
Always had great service and the only issues I've ever have are with the colour I chose for myself lol. Wonderful people, fair price, and nice and quick. I travel from oshawa cause I just can't find a better place! Also very clean and lovely atmosphere!
This is the best nail salon I have ever been to and I go to a lot of different salons. The staff is so professional and polite. The girls there are artists !!!
I did some search online for a place to get my nails done, and shortly afterwards I came across The Nail Pro. I guess it was destiny, because since my first visit I have always left their salon fully satisfied. Moreover, they have a wide set of additional services even for the most exquisite clients.
I have been coming here for a couple months and I am so happy I found this place. The customer service is amazing, the staff makes sure you are happy and satisfied! I get my nails done every 2 weeks by Mary and she is absolutely amazing, not only does she do a amazing job but she is so nice and fun to talk to I look forward to coming and seeing her. I would and do recommend pro nails .. I won’t go anywhere else (Ask for Mary ;) that’s my girl.
I have been getting my nails done since high school and have been to a lot of different salons. Mary from The Nail Pro salon is by far the best nail tech I have been to. I always walk away satisfied with what I get.
The Nail Pro is meticulous and outstanding in the service that it provides. I always leave happy and refreshed after a manicure. The salon is absolutely clean and sanitary.
A little pricey but you get what you pay for. I work at McDonald's and my shellac never lasts but one girl Cindy has become my regular. She puts an extra coating on to help last, and recently has started changing the brand of polish to see if certain ones last longer for me. She goes out of the way for me and speaks perfect English lol. Be prepared to spend a little more for a better result. Just wish there was a guarantee for how long it lasts. If it doesn't last a week, I shouldn't have to pay the full price to redo it... Otherwise, I can't go anywhere else :)
I am just appalled by some of the reviews. I would love to know what other salons these women have been to. This is by fair the most clean, organized and well run salon out there and I've been to hundreds. I never feel rushed but the girls are quick and efficient. They take care and know their customers by name. They are always busy and have hundreds of regulars.
I've been here on my occasions and always had excellent service. It is very clean and the people that work there always take their time and do a great job. I normally get my eyebrows done there and pedicures so I can't say anything about manicures. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Great salon, the ladies are lovely and always do a great job!
Only had to wait a few minutes before getting in for my pedicure. Staff very professional and efficient. They did an excellent job and the price was very affordable, definitely going back and would recommend to anyone!
