Soak in these New Pedicure Trends

Sticking your feet into a bath of fruits and roses, accompanied with jelly and whole milk may seem silly, or even odd. Not these days. Pedicures are about more than choosing a polish color. They are geared towards a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for you and your aching feet.   

According to Merriam-Webster, a pedicure is defined as care of the feet, toes, and nails. Thanh Nguyen, owner of Milanie Nail Bar off Nelson Road, notices that most of her customers want more than just pretty toes. Customers come in to recharge and de-stress from their day to day activities. Her nail bar offers a range of pedicures that start with simply changing the nail color, all the way to the Milanie V.I.P. Jellycure. The Jellycure package involves fruit that helps hydrate and soften the feet and calves, along with a sugar scrub and hot rock massage. The jelly in the foot bath moisturizes your feet and allows the basin water to stay warmer longer. This package also includes a lengthy calf and foot massage, cucumber wrap for dry skin, topped with a hot towel, and wax-dipped feet. Are you relaxed yet? 

DIY Foot Bath
Can’t get to a spa or nail salon anytime soon? A simple Pinterest or internet search for "foot bath” will show that you can enjoy one in the comfort of your own home. Some recipes on Pinterest include Epsom salts, essential oils, and warm water. Sounds normal, right? What about Listerine, coffee grounds, and vinegar? Those are some of the more unusual ingredients you may find listed. Do you need to detox, relax, or just moisturize your cracked heels? You can get specific when you search to help find the foot bath recipe that is right for you. 

Calling All Kids
Sore feet and the need for relaxation don’t discriminate by age. Men, women, and even kids can appreciate a pedicure. Nguyen at Melanie offers pedicure services for children age 10 and under. Their Princess and Sport Boy Pedicure service includes cuticle and callus care. If your little one wants more, they offer a Princess or Prince PediBomb treatment, which includes a toy filled bath bomb.  

The More the Merrier! 
What are you doing for your bridal shower, birthday party, or mom’s night out?  Invite your friends or coworkers to join in the experience. What a great way to unwind after a long work day or week. If you call your salon ahead, they will make sure to accommodate all your party guests.  

Whether you close your eyes and drift off, or scroll through social media, take the time to relax and truly enjoy your pedicure experience.
