Hey all!

I got an manicure assignment today and i've nearly done it all except this one question which i'm really really stuck on. The question is -

When would you offer the following treatment to a client:-

A) False Nails?
B) Nail Extensions?

Plllease could someone help me.. it's really stressing me out :D

Are they not in essence the same thing.

Unless they are meaning that false nails would be, say an overlay on the natural nails and nail extensions would be lengthening the natural nails.

What course are you doing, this is very disappointing that this is an assignment question, in my opinion.

I agree Theresa - False Nails would be the description of something you buy in Boots to DIY.

I found this on the VTCT site:

Level 2 Certificate in Nail Technology (D1007)

This qualification deals with the application, repair, maintenance and removal of artificial nail structures. This provides a basis for manufacturer's specialised knowledge of the wider range of products and methods available. (Supported by HABIA, the Sector Skills Organisation for beauty services)
Sorry "Angel" I am not meaning to criticise you in any way at all, I am quite disappointed as this course has very good "credentials" but very poorly worded questions if this one is anything to go on.

Good luck with your course and shout if we can help any further.

Hey girls,

I'm sorry but i have missed read it, it's an written assessment not a asignment.

I'm going to miss that question out and have a word with my tutor about it, Just hope she wont fail me on it.

Thanks girls x

Hi, Angel,

I am quite recently out of college having done by VTCT Level 2 in Nail Services and unless I am barking up the wrong tree completely (or barking mad), I would word my assessment as follows:-

1. False Nails: This is an old terminology for nail enhancements which covers tips, natural overlays and sculptures as detailed in question 2.
2. Enhancements: As above this covers 3 types. If the client attends for a manicure any of the 3 enhancements can be offered if suitable. This would increase salon revenue because finishing treatments e.g. cuticle oil and polish can be offered. Enhancements could also be offered if the client is attending a special occasion, e.g. wedding, hen party, holiday. This way they have a permanent set of nails without having to re-polish whilst they are away (and you get to rebalance)!! Again, extra revenue.

I always used to look for the hard answers, but in reality all they are looking for is common sense. So think what you would do if you were a tech in a nail salon. But, don't beat yourself up ahout it!!

Hope this helps a little.

:hug:
