It speaks volumes if a man has well-presented nails, hands and feet. Manicures have long been a staple with business men because we display hands as we greet, eat and drink, we gesture with them, and display rings and jewellery. Feet are on display in sandles, when bathing, on holiday, in the bedroom and often at temples. A manicure and pedicure files away cracked skin and calluses, waxing removes unsightly hair, nails and cuticles can be shaped, clipped and strengthened, and the skin can be soaked, moisturised and replenished with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids to replenish, nourish and feel great.

A manicure and pedicure are no longer the guard of a woman's beauty secret at al Covo. We offer a range of scientifically designed products dedicated to men's tougher, thicker and hairier skin. Give them some TLC - no nail polish required. Guaranteed to tackle even the most unruly of beastly talons, this manicure or pedicure incorporates:

  • Shape/trim of nails, filing and buffering - without paint or polish!
  • Soak and cleanse in hot water massage foot spa.
  • Removal of hard skin with various tools.
  • Choice of hand and foot scrubs to slough off dead skin and leave fresh younger skin.
  • Cuticle retraction, nipping, buffering and oiling - for clear nail edges, strengthening and a healthy shine.
  • Hydration to nourish and soften skin with replenishing anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids.
  • Optional waxing to remove unsightly hair.
  • Massage with essential oils to relax and ease muscles. Option to extend to full massage.

I use Neal's Yard products for the feet and hands because they are organic, local and their products work.              Steve ;;
