A manicure is a cosmetic treatment for the hands and fingernails. The process usually includes a hand soak, a cuticle treatment (with a cuticle pusher), nail clipping and shaping, a short hand massage and application of nail polish. 

Manicures can be done to shape the nails differently. The various nail shapes that exist include oval, square, square oval, square with rounded corners, pointed, round, and strait with a rounded tip.
