Manicure vs Pedicure: Key Differences Explained for 2024

Understanding the Differences Between Pedicure and Manicure: A Guide for Beginners

Pedicures and manicures are essential treatments for anyone looking to maintain polished, refined nails. Though both services aim to beautify your nails, they cater to different parts of the body and have unique benefits. Here’s a detailed look at each treatment, including specific services and pricing offered at our salon to help you decide what’s best for you.

What is a Manicure?

A manicure is a beauty treatment exclusively for the fingernails and hands, performed at our salon or at home. This service typically includes nail shaping, cuticle care, hand massage, and the application of nail polish. At Glam Nail and Beauty Salon, we offer a variety of manicure options:

  • Standard Manicure: Includes filing, shaping, cuticle care, and polish application. Price: €30
  • Gel Manicure: Uses a gel-based polish that is cured under UV light for a longer-lasting finish. Price: €40
  • Luxury Manicure: A comprehensive treatment that includes all the elements of a standard manicure plus a hydrating hand mask and extended massage. Price: €50

What is a Pedicure?

A pedicure focuses on the feet and toenails and involves similar steps to a manicure but includes additional treatments like callus removal and foot scrubbing to ensure your feet are healthy and well-groomed. Our pedicure services include:

  • Classic Pedicure: Soaking, nail trimming and shaping, cuticle care, exfoliating scrub, massage, and nail polish. Price: €45
  • Spa Pedicure: Includes all elements of the Classic Pedicure with the addition of a paraffin wax treatment for deep moisturization. Price: €60
  • Deluxe Pedicure: The ultimate treat for your feet, featuring enhanced exfoliation, a luxurious mask, and an extended massage. Price: €75

Key Differences Between Manicure and Pedicure

The primary difference between these treatments is their focus areas—manicures are for the hands and fingernails, while pedicures are designed for the feet and toenails. Additionally, pedicures often address more intensive care for calluses and rough skin, which are common on the feet.
