Getting Manicure and Pedicure at The Spa

A manicure and pedicure at the spa is generally more expensive than what you get at the local nail salon. A spa manicure might be $25 vs. $10 at the corner nail salon, while a spa pedicure might be $45 or $50. What are you getting for your money?

Why Is The Spa Manicure and Pedicure More Expensive?

You are paying in part for a more luxurious atmosphere. Instead of fluorescent lights and noxious fumes from airbrushed nails, you have pretty light fixtures, good design, and a handsome pedicure chair in a quiet corner. You probably won't get the full robe and slipper treatment if you are only purchasing nail services.

But spa owners do go to great lengths to find technicians who can give you a special experience. They can give you beautifully shaped nails and suggest the perfect color for your skin and the season.

Their work lasts -- no chips or bubbles. And they should have a very nice manner.

A spa manicure and pedicure usually has a few extra steps -- an aromatic salt rub, or hydrating mask or paraffin dip -- that can make it last longer and feel more luxurious.

If you need to save, get a spa manicure or pedicure as a special treat and do you regular maintenance at home or with your corner nail or beauty salon.
