All nail salons render a special service not only for finger nails and hands care, but also for your feet and toe nails. This procedure is called pedicure and is applied similar to the manicure procedure with its own features, because foot skin has other characteristics, toe nails grow very slowly and they have a coarser structure than finger nails. Some nailists can offer a special service of toe nail designs that became popular several decades ago. Toe nails should be well-attended and beautiful like finger nails, especially in the summer time when women prefer to wear open shoes. If the toe nails are injured, or the shape is not attractive, modern technologies allow special toe nail designs and toe nail sculpturing to be done using up-to-date materials.
Toe nail sculpturing procedure and toe nail designs use gel or acryl materials like those used for finger nails. Usually nailists create gel toe nail plates, because a thin layer of the gel looks more elegantly on the small toe nail surfaces. The gel hardens under an ultra-violet light in a short time and is easy to apply. Cosmetologists add into the gel liquid a special keratin-like substance that will make your nails stronger. Acryl is a mixture of powder and ethymethacrylate that hardens fast in one minute. This material is usually used for removing and hiding any defects of the toe nails, to extend the missing part of the little toe nail or to remove uneven places of the nail plate. Acrylic toe nail will not differ from a natural toe nail, but will have a beautiful shape and accurate look. In order to start with the toe nail sculpturing process and toe nail designs, it is highly recommended to fulfill a pedicure procedure, that can be classical, SPA, or a type of pedicure using special facilities and machines.
Usually the classical pedicure includes a softening bath for 15-20 minutes, removing callosities and cuticles with the help of nail scissors, clippers or other tools, shaping the toe nail plate, softening and moistening feet skin, massage and covering the toe nail surfaces by protecting coats. After these procedures the toe nail designs can be applied in order to make your toe nails more beautiful. The toe nail surfaces are degreased and disinfected. After this the gel or acryl coats for nail design are applied with the help of tips or on the natural toe nail. Tips are usually used if part of the natural nail is missing. After this coating, nails are glossed and trimmed. Nail polishes and paintings can be also used that are very fashionable. The color of toe nails and finger nails can be combined and be harmonious. Toe nails color can be a little bit darker than that on the finger nails. But this depends on your whim, or the imagination of your nailist.
Toe nails grow slowly in comparison with finger nails and do not require correction too often, that is an advantage. Usually the customers can apply for correction once in 1.5-2 months, but some women wear designed toe nails without correction during the summer season. It is very convenient.
