The field of nail technology has undergone many changes as new technologies have developed and new issues have emerged. This fourth edition of the text, Milady's Art and Science of Nail Technology, has been thoroughly revised to include the most up-to-date information available to nail technologists as well as updated supplementary materials for the student and instructor. In addition, this updated text incorporates recommendations from state boards of cosmetology, classroom instructors, school owners, manufacturers, and practitioners. Their helpful suggestions will make learning easier for students, simplify teaching for instructors. This new edition will ensure greater success for students taking the state board examinations, and provide greater protection for nail salon clients. Presented in a clear, user-friendly format that helps students learn the common links between the concepts and principles of nail technology, this text is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to pass state licensing exams, as well as to perform professional nail technology services. Drawing on the combined expertise of 13 industry leaders, educators, and artists, this revised textbook gives students a thorough understanding of all aspects of nail technology today.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Intentions Gone Bad April 1, 2003
By A Customer
I have taught for years and have been impressed by Milady's dedication to the Industry, until now. This new text book was headed in the right direction, with the addition of some fantastic photos for nail diseases, but it missed it's usual high standards drastically. The chapters, especially those most important to the foundation of education, such as sanitation issues and safety issues towards clients, fall far too short. A school is intended to give the basis of a long and safe career in this industry, yet this book irresponsibley dedicated more time to air brushing (which is difficult at best to learn via a book) then it did to the fundamentals of salon safety for both the tech and the client. I am very very disappointed. The chapters seem to be started off in the right direction, then are seemingly cut severly short. The book is choppy and incomplete at best. Sad to see such unprofessional results from a long time industry leader who has continually been the one who set the standards and raised the bar.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is nice that we finally have an updated book... August 20, 2005
I felt that the book was basically the same as the previous edition, with the exception of aromatherapy, and electric filing. Unfortionatly no one book can give all of the information that is required about a subject. That is what teaching is all about. I generally supplement the material from other books, and Florida law so our students stay on the right path. Over all I would have to say that this book was above average, and addressed many of the changes in the industry to date.
