The difference between aesthetic and curative manicure depends on the state of the nails at the time of treatment. The first is done on healthy nails and hands. The second is aimed at the treatment and resolution of problems such as weak and damaged nails due to nail-biting, dehydrated or chapped hands, small calluses or excess cuticles.

The curative manicure differs from the aesthetic one because it treats problems not linked to pathologies that require medical intervention.
