Manicurists and pedicurists work exclusively on the hands and feet, providing treatments to groom fingernails and toenails. A typical treatment involves soaking the clients’ hands or feet to soften the skin in order to remove dead skin cells. Manicurists and pedicurists apply lotion to the hands and feet to moisturize the skin. They may also shape and apply polish to artificial fingernails. Manicurists and pedicurists use a variety of tools, including nail clippers, nail files, and specialized cuticle tools.
