hi does anybody have any good reading material they can recommend. i have the usual art & science of nail technology and beauty therapy books but looking for something good and although i know i can order from bookshops - they know nothing about nails and it would be good if someone had a really good reading reference they could let me have the name of.

Nothing beats 'Nail Structure & Product Chemistry by Doug Schoon. In it you will find all the answers to all the mysteries you ever had!

There was a thread sometime ago on books and there are lots of reccommendations there and also a few 'don't buy sufggestions too. Perhaps the Geek will post the link to it.

I was just looking through the old messages and found this thread. Is this the link you refered to geeg?

Hope its some help
The Encyclopedia of nails I found to be a good read, Dougs book is next on my list
thanks all just gonna look on amazon and see if i can order the encyclopedia and doug schoons book
thanks for all your help much 'preciated
I would absolutely recommend the Encylopedia of Nails.....I have received my copy recently via Amazon at a really competitive price!
I think it contains most of whatever you need to know!
I cant stop reading it!
