A brand of nail spa, which stresses natural appearances, provides not only luxurious treatment but also effective mani-pedi sessions by licensed podiatrists, not mere beauticians. Kitty Go discovers their unique features.

You may not have the sharpest features but can still look stunning if you are well groomed.

Apart from clothes, it's important to have healthy skin and hair, as well as immaculate nails.

Bastien Gonzalez, founder of Pedi:Mani:Cure, believes in creating beautiful, natural-looking nails without the use of nail varnish. "'Pedi' is foot and 'cure' is taking care of the feet and skin, not painting the nails. Women want to look more beautiful in a natural way," he says.

"Nails must be free of varnish in the same way you remove your makeup at night. I am not against varnish but it has to be removed after three days. Nails are dead and don't need to breathe but it is the nail bed that has to!"

Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio boasts luxurious nail spas in prestigious locations in 13 countries, including China and India. They are part of the One and Only group in Dubai, South Africa, the Maldives and Mexico, with the Intercontinental in Thailand and Vietnam, the St. Regis in Singapore and the Landmark Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong.

A Bastien Gonzalez pedicure costs about $150, depending on location and exchange rates.
