Your feet and hands are constantly moving throughout the day, which can take a toll on your skin and nails over time. Did you know regular manicures and pedicures can actually provide long-term health benefits for your entire body? Here are a few ways these luxurious treatments can lead to a happier and healthier you!

  • Increase Blood Flow - The massaging motion is more than just relaxing; it also improves blood circulation throughout your arms and legs.
  • Prevent Fungal Infections - During manicures and pedicures, nail technicians remove dead skin cells and dirt from underneath the nails. This deep cleaning prevents the growth of fungus and keeps your nails healthy and strong.
  • Reduce Stress - Manicures and pedicures are great ways to destress from your hectic life. You might only consider these treatments to be an occasional indulgence, but in reality, they are effective forms of self-care.
  • Boost Confidence - Do you hate looking down and seeing dry, cracked skin and broken nails on your hands and feet? Do the words “flip-flops” or “sandals” give you anxiety? Freshly painted nails and rejuvenated skin from a mani/pedi will make you want to show off your fingers and toes!

At our Merle Norman studio, we offer a variety of sumptuous manicure and pedicure options. Choose from our selection of brilliant colors to show off your unique personality! Schedule an appointment with one of our nail specialists today. (309) 663-4733

Manicures

Price: $20 and up
Your hands are consistently exposed to dirt, grime, and harsh weather conditions throughout the year. That’s why it’s important to give them the love and care they deserve! Skin on your hands loses firmness over time and can develop wrinkles, sun spots, and other aging signs. However, regular moisturizing and cuticle care can help your hands look younger and feel softer!
