Did you know that the first manicures and pedicures came from ancient civilizations? Well, they did. In fact, in ancient Egypt, royalty and nobility were “allowed” to grow their fingernails long and decorate them with bright colors because it signified their authority to communicate with the gods. Which meant that slaves and servants had to keep their fingernails short with light colors because they didn’t have that authority.
Today, manicures and pedicures are still quite popular, even though the majority of people don’t think it will help them communicate with the gods. Many women – and let’s be honest, some men as well – love going to get their fingers and toes fixed up. As a manicurist or pedicurist, you enjoy helping your clients feel better and also improve the look of their fingers and toes. You’re filing, shaping, polishing, and sometimes even massaging fingers and toes almost every day, so you’ve become kind of an expert in your profession.
Still, no matter how much expertise you have, there are always things that can go wrong in the course of your job.
