Manicure & Pedicure

The word “manicure/pedicure” derives from Latin: manus for “hand”, “Pedis” which means “of the foot”, and cura for “care.”  Manicures have been around for over 4000 years, and for good reason. The history of pedicures dates back to ancient Egypt. A carving of a pharaoh’s official was noted as representing pedicures and manicures.

Maintenance is key; although access to personal care is so easy these days because of discount nail salons, you must be aware of sanitization.  It makes no sense trying to maintain the health benefits and to end up with health risks.  At Vixen Nails & Spa we use hospital grade sanitization products ensuring a safe environment for our clients.  For more questions see our FAQ’s.

Our hands and our feet are the parts of our body we use everyday for movement and human interaction, therefore it only makes sense to maintain and enhance them for optimal health.
