American Manicure and Pedicure

American Manicure or Pedicure

An American manicure or pedicure is a specific style of painting the nails that is similar to French manicures and pedicures — natural looking clear, pink or nude toned base polish paired with thin white tips — but with addition of different colors, glitter, rhinestones and other less conventional touches, all the while still keeping the look quite natural. 


Some examples include painting a very thin strip of color underneath the typical white tips, adding small dots of glitter along the tip or applying diamonds on the center of each manicured nail. Whether you use Essie, OPI, Orly, or any brand of polish in between, American manicures are easy to achieve both at home and at a nail salon or spa.
