How Often Should I Get a Manicure and Pedicure?
A manicure and pedicure can be a rare treat a few times a year, or it can be part of a regular beauty routine. If you do get professional nail care, you will need to schedule regular visits for upkeep. Depending on the type of manicure pedicure you choose, you can expect to make these appointments one to four times per month on average. Natural nails generally require less maintenance than artificial ones. Other determining factors include your growth rate and whether you have any special hand or foot care needs that a regular manicure and pedicure will help.
A pedicure generally lasts longer than a manicure, and you can usually get a basic one about once or twice per month. Pedicures normally require less maintenance if your feet are not regularly exposed to the elements or to rough treatment. If you are prone to calluses or dry skin, more frequent pedicures about three times a month can help with these common problems.
The amount of time between manicures depends on how quickly your nails grow and your daily activities. If your nails grow slowly, you can generally get a manicure every two to three weeks. More frequent manicures can maintain your nails' appearance if your job or hobbies expose your hands to water, clay, or other substances that dry out your hands and nails.
