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?
erm 6 i think

square
squoval (cant think what other name is for this)
almond
round
stilleto
egyptian hat or fan?

is that it or is there more?

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!

My question is........

WHAT FACTORS AFFECT THE GROWTH RATE OF THE NAIL?

I hope you would remember to get the clients signature prior to each treatment commencing.

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 ???

You are describing Inflammations of the skin :hug:

A lesion is a structural change in tissue cause by injury and disease. I will name a few of them:

  • Cyst
  • Papule
  • Pustule
  • Scar
  • Fissure
  • Tumor
  • Ulcer
  • Wheals
and the golden rule is that if the area of skin to be worked on is infected, inflamed, broken, or raised, a nail tech should NOT service the client.

Okay, as you were...AND DON'T FORGET TO ASK A QUESTION AFTER YOU'VE ANSWERED ONE! :hug:

The lunula is where the matrix connects with the nail bed.

The eponyichium, proximal nail fold and the lateral nail fold.


The nail unit is made up of several components which form, support, protect and frame the nail itself. These include the nail matrix, the nail plate, the cuticle, the nail bed and nail folds. The nail unit protects fingertips, enhances fine touch and is important as a cosmeticstructure!

(haha taken straight from my college notes!!)

Q: Starting with the letter M, i am the surrounding something within which something else originates, developes, or is contained... the formative cells or tissue of a fingernail toenail or tooth.. what am i?

Whew!!

Q: List the ten systems that make up the human body and list the functions of each.
1.Integumentary (skin) -keeps everything inside
2.Skeletal (bones) - so you don't lay on the floor like a blob of jelly
3.Muscular - so you can move
4. Nervous-no it doesn't give you butterflies in the tummy. It bosses al the other systems around so they do the right thing
5.Circulatory- pumps the blood (and lymph)
6.Endocrine- glands which control growth, reproduction & health
7.Excretory- gets rid of the yuk stuff
8.Respiratoy- Located in the nails so don't wear too much nail polish or you'll suffocate
9.Digestive- gets the good stuff out of food
10.Reproductive-If you don't know what them bits do I'm not going to tell you:o
