Full Answer

A pedicure typically involves soaking the feet in a tub of warm water, often with massaging jets. Many nail salons have these tubs connected to massaging chairs to help clients feel more relaxed. The technician will also file calluses, apply lotion to the feet, and trim and file the toenails. The client can also have their toenails painted with their choice of polish. More expensive pedicure packages may include massage, toning leg treatments and other specialty services.
