The history of manicure: nails
5000 years ago, Indian women used to decorate their hands and nails with henna. 1000 years later, it is noted in southern Babylon that men painted their nails with kohl to show their social standing. The color black was reserved for the privileged classes while green was worn by the middle classes. Around 3000, the Chinese left a colored lacquer on their nails. They are the first to have invented the varnish. The varnish was made of beeswax, egg white, gum arabic and vegetable dye. Around 600, to show their royal blood, the Chinese put gold and silver on their nails while Egyptian women applied a ruby color to their nails. Over time, Western women kept their nails short and rounded, which was synonymous with beauty, health and nobility.
