FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are manicures and pedicures safe during pregnancy?
As long as you adhere to good practices, manicures and pedicures are just as safe and relaxing for pregnant clients as they are for everyone else. For instance, your salon should be hygienic and well-ventilated at all times, but these aspects become more important when pregnant, so clients might be more tempted to choose your salon if they see you care about them. Since pregnant women tend to be more sensitive to strong smells, ensuring good ventilation is essential for their comfort. This also holds if the pregnant one is the manicurist. As far as hygiene goes, pregnant women looking for a mani-pedi need to know that their risk of contracting bacterial or fungal infections is as low as possible. Keep your manicure and pedicure tools sterilized, use vinyl or nitrile gloves, and everyone will be safe and relaxed. You can also consider using more disposables, such as nail files, buff blocks, cuticle pushers, tub liners, linen-like washcloths, or mini pedicure kits.
What types of add-on services can I offer to my manicure and pedicure clients?
You can turn your regular pedicure service into a spa pedicure by incorporating foot massage and exfoliation, a paraffin wax dip, a foot soak, and/or a hot towel rub. A spa manicure could also include additional nail treatments, a hand soak, and wax dips, and the treatment can be finished with a nice hand moisturizer. To make sure you give your clients the ultimate service, enhance your treatment with stone therapy, and opt for a manicure and pedicure set of cosmetics with their favorite scent. The set should contain a gentle anti-microbial cleanser, hand and foot soak effervescent tablets, a clay-based scrub, a detoxifying and hydrating mask, and a creamy moisturizer to finish off. Recommended scents include green tea, mint, vanilla, lemongrass, and lavender.
What is the best way to organize my manicure and pedicure supplies?
While there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to organizing mani-pedi supplies, you can use a mix of shelves, drawers, and portable containers, depending on the space you have available and how far apart the pedicure station is from the manicure table. Large containers of cuticle removers, scrubs, acetone, and moisturizers should be placed on shelves, disposable cotton supplies in the drawers of the manicure table, while nail files, nail blocks and buffers, and other nail implements and tools that are common for manicure and pedicure are better off in a plastic container with dividers. While nail color is also a common element, it is best displayed on a shelf at eye level.
What supplies do I need to start my own mobile manicure business?
If you want to stay mobile and give clients manicures at their homes, you must pack a bag of supplies that is light enough to carry around but includes all the essentials. This means that your spa treatment options will be limited and you will have to transfer most creams and moisturizers to smaller containers. Basic nail tools you will need are nail cutters, nail files, cuticle pushers and cutters, nail blocks and buffers, and a nail brush. Even if you only offer basic manicure services, without any soaks or masks, you will still need nail color, a base coat, a top coat, acetone, disposable cotton supplies, and cuticle oil. Gel manicures will require additional supplies like an LED/UV lamp, a nail primer, gel polishes, a nail dust brush, and optional nail art supplies — brushes, dotting tools, stencils, stickers, rhinestones, and nail striping tape.
How can I keep my manicure and pedicure equipment sanitized and safe?
Throw away all the used disposables as soon as you are done with them, clean your manicure table and pedicure station after each client, and wipe the table and equipment with disinfectant wipes. Wash your hands in front of each client and put on disposable gloves if necessary. When filing nails, use a dust collector and wear goggles and/or a face mask. When done with a client, wash all the reusable tools, pat them dry with a clean towel, and submerge them in a disinfectant jar for at least 10 minutes. You can either keep them in the disinfectant, put them in a clean drawer lined with paper towels, or in sterilization pouches that go in a sterilizer until you are ready to use them again.
