  • Among many cosmetic treatments we can get from a beauty salon, we will explain a notion of service called manicure & pedicure. In broader sense, manicure is a type of treatment which is targeted an area like your hand. When you order this service, manicure will incorporate cuticles and the fingernails as well as some other treatment like nail polish.
