Nail skill is a creative way to color, decorate, enhance, and embellish the nails. It really is a type of artwork that can be done on fingernails and toenails, after manicures or pedicures usually. A manicure and a pedicure are beauty treatments that trim, shape, and polish the nail. Often these methods take away the cuticles and soften the skin about the fingernails or toenails.The exact source of toenail treatments is unclear, since it appears to have originated in different parts of the world around the same time. In ancient Egypt, from 5000 B.C. to 3000 B.C., women would dye their fingernails with henna to indicate public status and seductiveness. Women of the low class wore pastel and neutral shades, while the upper classes wore deep, bright shades. In Babylonia, 3200 B.C., men, not women, coated their claws with green and black kohl, an ancient cosmetic. To prepare for warfare, warriors of Babylon put in hours having their toenails prepared, wild hair possessed and curled other similar beauty treatments. As in ancient Egypt, nail color indicated one's status, black for noblemen and green for the normal man. Around the same time, 3000 B.C., the first toenail polish started in ancient China. It had been made from beeswax, egg whites, gelatin, veggie dyes, and gum arabic. Chinese dipped their fingernails or toenails in this blend for several hours or kept it on to dried up. Colors ranged from green to red, depending on the combination of the ingredients. Through the Zhou Dynasty, 600 B.C., royalty used this simple toe nail polish with silver and gold dust on the nails showing their social position.
