Difference between Manicure and Pedicure

Question by Guest | Last update on 2021-05-17 | Created on 2017-12-28

Recently, I was in a beauty salon, my appearance was pretty embarrassing. Right at the beginning, I was asked whether I only want a manicure or a pedicure. I had no idea what that could be. Can someone explain the difference?

Manicure and pedicure are referring to the care of hand and feet:

  • Manicure is derived from the Latin word manus (hand) and means the cosmetic care of hands and fingernails.
  • Pedicure is also derived from Latin (pes, pedis = foot) and means the cosmetic care of the feet and toenails.

The care includes, for example, the bathing, washing and creaming of the hands and feet, the cutting, filing, polishing and painting of the nails and the removal of dead skin.
