European Manicure Definition and AdvantagesFeb 04 2014
A European manicure, also known as a “dry manicure” is one of the most underrated manicures today. Unlike a traditional manicure, the European manicure is known for being a more healthy alternative.
The advantages of this particular manicure are that the hands are typically soaked in a soothing blend of herbs and water versus the harsh chemicals that many standard manicures use. Cutting tools are not used which ensures that this will be a less painful procedure. Instead of tweezers and scissors, a wooden stick is used to manage cuticles and nails.
Don’t forget the massage! One of the more unique aspects of a European manicure is that a hand massage is also a part of the process. This helps to relieve tension that often builds up even in your hands. Your nails are then cleaned, shaped and finally a color or design is applied.
