Marion X
the cuticle lies above the eponychium and is the watertight seal that protects the matrix

the eponychium is the skin fold at the end of the nail plate

? hopes thats the right way to describe them


my question is what is the proper term for long thick curved nails?

You should make sure that your area is ventilated or you could be in danger of overexposure.
The signs of ovrerexposure are:

  • Lightheadedness
  • Insomnia
  • Runny nose
  • Sore, dry throat
  • Watery eyes
  • Tingling toes
  • Tiredness all day
  • Irritability
  • Sluggishness
  • Breathing problems
Q: What does MSDS stand for and what is it? And what should be included in it?

All relevant information regarding the make up of the product, plus safety information, storage information etc, you should have one for each and every product.

You would complete a client consultation form prior to any treatment in order to record important information about the client and their general health and also to find out what they would like to achieve from their treatment....this is also a record that can be referred back to for various reasons...such as an ongoing treatment to improve the condition of the nails for example.

Its also important for insurance purposes and the most important thing you would put on it is probably any allergies the client has? and other important health and medication related information, the next important thing would be the condition of the nails etc.

Hope thats correct!

Well im stumped on this one! erm...verrucas, warts, paronychia, scabies, psoriasis, dermatits, eczema, ringworm (am i on the right track?) lol
is the golden rule that you never treat a client with broken, sore, weaping or cut skin and you never try to diagnose something yourself.....if you dont know what it is...advise them to seek medical advise first ???

It can take up to 6 months for a finger nail to replace completely, and a year for a toe nail to replace itself, sometimes longer.

My question is.......

How many different shapes can you do an enhancement and what are they called?
