    Re: One question, please

    It can be countable or uncountable, depending on the context. You can have a manicure(a single occasion when you manicure your nails) or your nails may need manicure.

    Re: One question, please

    I can't say I'm familiar with the uncountable form.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
