I would really recommend "The Encyclopedia Of Nails" by Jacqui Jefford and Anne Swain. Its my bible i have to say, everything you could possibly need to know about nails.

Manicures, pedicures, Acrylic, Fibreglass, Gel, contra indications, chemical hazzards, sanitation, your NVQ, even how to go about opening your own salon etc. EVERYTHING.

hope this helps

Hi there

I have an excellent book which I think NSI have used for the manicure course!
It's by Elaine Almond and called Manicure, Pedicure and Advanced Nail Techniques ISBN 1-86152-689-x, it really is an excellent book and also has nail diseases etc.

I second what Talented Talons says here - it is the best book around!! It is the recommended book by NVQ examiners and i often consult it.
