I have the Marian Newman book - was after better illustrations/pics of the diseases - so i will look at your other choice. thankslesley1965 said:MARIAN NEWMAN, THE COMPLETE NAIL TECHNICIAN.
This covers Nail dieases and disorder also or you could try
Manicure, Pedicure & Advanced Nail Techniques By Elaine Almond.
Both are very good allround books.
I second thatTrinity Nails said:The Encyclopedia Of Nails by Jacqui Jefford and Anne Swain has a whole section dedicated to Nail and skin diseases including photographs and descriptions.
I got my copy from Amazon, but it occaisionally comes up on ebay too - it's about £20-25 but worth every penny.
Your local library may have a copy in the reference section, and you can take copies of the pages for a small fee I believe?????
