Manicure for nails differs in the way of processing the cuticle: European, edged, hardware, hot, etc. Previously, many women preferred the classic manicure, but today the hardware method of removing the cuticle is gaining popularity. Both of these options have significant differences.
Classic (edged) manicure
This type of manicure is also called "wet" because of the method of softening the cuticle. When performing it, the nails are first given the necessary shape, and then the hands are steamed in a special solution. After the cuticle is soft, it is gently pushed back and removed with tweezers. Such a manicure is not only the most difficult, but also quite dangerous - in the process of performing it, there is a risk of injuring the cuticle and introducing any infection into the body. That is why all the tools that the master uses in his work must be carefully autoclaved.
A classic (edged) manicure is recommended to be done no more than 1 time per week. It is most suitable for those who have a rather coarse and large cuticle, but if there are small capillaries close to the surface of the skin, a very thin cuticle or delicate skin, you should refrain from using it.
This method of nail care is one of the varieties of European manicure. For its implementation, a special apparatus is used, which is equipped with grinding rapidly rotating nozzles. With the help of this device, dead cuticle cells are removed, while the skin itself around the nail remains intact. This type of manicure is considered "dry" - polishing is performed without the use of any emollients on dry skin.
You should not do hardware manicure at home, it is best to entrust it to a professional, since if you do it yourself, there is a risk of causing significant damage to the nail plate.
Hardware manicure has many advantages. It slows down the growth of the cuticle, prevents the delamination of nails. Especially recommended for people with damaged nails, fast growing and dry cuticles.
But still, if the skin around the nail is very thin, it is undesirable to perform hardware manicure. To preserve the neatness and beauty of nails, you must resort to using hardware manicure at least 2 times a month.
Which manicure is better
Summing up, we can say with confidence that the safest and at the same time quite simple is precisely the hardware manicure - when it is performed, there is no possibility of injury to the skin around the nail, and, accordingly, the risk of infection with any infections. The only drawback of this method is the need for a special apparatus and professional skills. What exactly to choose is up to you.
