Russian Manicure and Pedicure

Simplicity, elegance, and meticulous precision is what characterizes this fashion technique

Why use a lathe?

Cuticles are an important part of nails and are key when it comes to keeping nails healthy. The cuticle is the layer of skin at the beginning of its nail bed and its purpose is to protect the matrix (the part under the nail that produces the cells to form the nail plate) from bacteria or foreign particles. There is much controversy about pushing back or cutting the cuticles, which is mainly done to lengthen the nail as a whole.


Cutting the cuticles with a clamp tends to have the most uneven and sometimes painful results.Tweezers are the tool used to pinch and trim excess skin around the nail and cuticles.These can pierce the skin and cut too deeply, causing minor wounds and inflammation.There is nothing worse for your nails than having swollen and stabbing sores that have to heal around nail polish.(Oh, the burn!)

A visible difference

With a Russian manicure or pedicure, a completely different technique and instrument is used for cuticles. Using an electronic device (the electronic nail lathe that is typically used for acrylics and stuffed nails), excess skin surrounding the nail bed is removed, just like a clip, but with a small electronic lathe. This avoids cutting the nail excessively and allows the nail technician to have more control.

With this type of manicure, your nail is perfectly trimmed and soft around the edges, ideal for applying a seamless glaze. Once you try this manicure, you will see the difference and how much easier it will be to trim your cuticles without the nicks of a tweezers!
