by Jeff Schuh

The nail salon these days have so many options to pick from. Most times, you might need to decide what you want before leaving your house for a manicure.

Years ago, when life was simpler, there was only a few manucure ideas. And so you did not have to write any mental exam first before concluding in your head what type of manicure you would be getting at the salon.

It is a little different now, but there is always help. Here are some manicure types that you could pick from.

Classic Manicure

This type of manicure is just simple. It is as simple as it can be. The basic nail cleaning at the beginning and application of polish at the end.

This manicure type is not expensive as it costs about $10 to $20, it can last up to a week and can be easily removed with a nail polish remover and cotton pads. It is best to go for a nail polish remover that does not contain many chemicals. The right nail polish remover will help you maintain healthy nails.

The classic manicure type is usually the easiest to do and will be very helpful if you are in a hurry. It is fast and easy. If you already have great hands and just require a little touch to spice them up, this type is for you.

Reverse Manicure

In reverse manicure, they give you what is known as the half-moon. The half-moon is a pattern where they highlight the lower part of your nail to look like a half-moon. It can be placed under the category of the classic manicure, but it has gained popularity and gained its own show.

It costs about $15 to $35. It can last up to a week and even longer, depends on how you manage it. The removal process is similar to the classic manicure style. All you need is a nail polish remover and cotton pads.

Paraffin Manicure

The paraffin manicure type goes a little bit further into the manicure treatment. It involves dipping your hand in warm, melted paraffin wax. Then hydrating your skin after a full manicure service.

Paraffin manicure can cost $10 to $15 and the effect can be felt for about a week. This type of manicure can be followed up by any other type. So it is for people who just want to treat themselves.

Vinylux Manicure

Talk about style! The Vinylux manicure is a nail polish brand that has its own colorful coating. It is beautifully designed to last for about a week without chipping. It is also easily removed with a nail polish remover and cotton swabs.

For people who want long wear without length, this is for you. It can cost up to $20 to $35.


People looking to get a manicure need to decide what type you would be getting. They should remember that whatever type of manicure you choose should be for you. It should be a decision based on your everyday lifestyle, and what you enjoy.
