What is a Manicure?
If you didn’t know or were not sure … well, a Manicure is basically a beauty treatment performed in a nail salon for your hands and fingernails. It consists of a number of individual treatments like nails clipped, filed and shaped, cuticles pushed back and hand massage and paraffin wax treatments. The actual treatment will depend upon the type of manicure you choose (see individual treatments to learn more)

In a standard Manicure your hands are cleansed and thoroughly soaked and hydrated to replenish their moisture content. The nails are then attended to and sculpted beautifully to bring out their perfect shape. Our professional manicure technician will then apply softening lotions and oils to the cuticles to make them soft and then push them back to reveal the beautiful shape of the nail. The nails are then nourished and buffed to ensure they have that healthy glow. The manicure is completed with your choice of polish. You can choose between a wide variety of colours from brands like CND Vinylux, OPI and China Glaze. You can also upgrade to a CND Shellac finish.
What is a Pedicure ?
If you read what a manicure is in the previous section, then its quite easy to determine what a pedicure is …. well, a Pedicure is basically a beauty treatment performed in a nail salon for your feet and toenails. Like the manicure, the pedicure consists of a number of individual treatments from clipping and filing toe nails all the way to a deluxe pedicure which includes a foot massage and paraffin wax treatment.

What are the benefits of hand and foot nail care?
The basic aim of a manicure or pedicure is to make your hands, feet and nails look healthy and gorgeous. Our hands go through a lot in our daily routines, which roughens and dries the hands, chips or scuffs the nails. Hands are exposed to various chemicals in everyday households products and this dries the skin and nails. Feet usually have less exposure than hands, but if you wear sandals or open shoes they too are exposed to the elements.
As nails and cuticles grow naturally, the shape of the nails and cuticles may well not grow to be very flattering. For these reasons and much more, it’s always a great idea to have your hands and feet manicured and pedicured regularly at a professional nail salon like Baba Beauty Lounge. With professionals who know and understand hands, feet and nails, you’ll have them looking at their very best in no time at all.

Do you cut Cuticles ?
As standard we do not cut cuticles. The cuticle is a barrier to protect and seal the nail, cutting a cuticle exposes the cuticle to possible infection. We, therefore, will apply a cuticle oil followed by push and reshaping the cuticle without cutting it.
What are CND Shellac Nails?
This is the special type of nail polish called a shellac. It is designed to last longer, the manufacturer, CND, claims 14 days wear, and most importantly NO Nail Damage. The Shellac process is designed to be a professionally applied in a nail salon. You can have a shellac treatment on fingernails and or toe nails. Our shellac treatment follows the procedure directed by CND. The process involves clipping and filing your nails as required, followed by tiding up your cuticles. A base coat is applied to your nails, followed by the shellac color of your choice, we have over 50 CND Shellac colour shades for you to choose from, this is then finished with the amazing CND Xpress5 topcoat to give you that mesmerizing glass finish. Every coat is cured under a genuine CND UV light for the perfect finish and lasting perfection.
What is the deluxe manicure or pedicure?
This is the crème de la crème. The deluxe is similar to the standard manicure or pedicure, except its finished with a choice of either paraffin wax treatment or a mask. Warm paraffin wax is applied to the hands or feet, and they are then wrapped in warm towel or mitts and the paraffin wax is left to do its job. The paraffin wax acts as an emollient, which holds and traps the moisture in your hands, feet and nails. When the wax is removed, it leaves your skin soft , smooth and moisturized.
The deluxe manicure or pedicure finishes with a relaxing hand or foot massage.
