The popularity of the French manicure has spread to the feet in recent years, giving French pedicures their own category. A French pedicure is basically a classic pedicure or spa pedicure with the addition of painting thin white stripes on the tip of the toes followed by a sheer nude or pink color on the base of the nail. Gel Pedicure
A gel pedicure is basically the same thing as a classic or spa pedicure, except the nail technician uses gel polish instead of regular nail polish, if toenail painting is requested. Gel polish is specially formulated to last two weeks without chipping (making it a very popular choice for manicures), however it does come with not-so-fun side effects like dry nails after acetone removal of the gel polish. Chocolate Pedicure
For serious chocoholics, the chocolate pedicure uses pretty much everything you can think of from the world of cocoa: a chocolate foot soak, a chocolate foot mask, and a chocolate moisturizing lotion. Chocolate-hued nail polish optional! The sweet substance has healthy foot benefits, including the fact that cocoa naturally moisturizes and firms the skin as well as acts as a powerful antioxidant. Bonus: smelling chocolate has been said to induce feelings of euphoria, meaning this is really a feel-good treat for your tootsies. Margarita Pedicure
Your feet deserve to party, too. And that’s why the margarita pedicure was born. It’s similar to a classic pedicure, except this one includes a lime footbath, a salt scrub, a lime-based massage oil and lime-scented moisturizer. If you’re lucky, the salon will pamper you with a shot of tequila, too.
