A Russian manicure and a regular gel manicure are two different nail treatments with distinct techniques and outcomes:
* Technique: This technique involves using an electric file (e-file) with specialised, fine-grit drill bits to gently remove dead skin and cuticles from the nail plate and surrounding areas.
* Purpose: The primary goal of a Russian manicure is to create a clean, precise nail surface and to remove excess dry cuticle tissue. It’s often preferred for achieving a more detailed and refined look + long lasting gel overlay manicure.
* Nail Health: When done correctly by a trained technician, a Russian manicure is considered to be gentler on the nails and cuticles compared to traditional cuticle cutting methods.
In summary, the key difference is in the technique and focus of manicure. A Russian manicure concentrates on meticulous cuticle and nail plate preparation and longer lasting results. However, both have their advantages and audiences, and the choice between them depends on your preferences and nail care needs.
