do have a manicure


Explanation:
Aqui nos Estados Unidos usamos a expressão "to have a manicure" quando queremos nos referir a fazer e pintar as unhas das mãos" e "have a pedicure" quando queremos fazera dos pés. Quando a pessoa quer apenas mudar a cor do esmalte dizem: "change the enamel"

manicure (one's) nails


Explanation:
In my opinion, this would be the best translation. You could say paint but it's not as literate. Good Luck.
