Format: Paperback
Elaine Almond produced this standard textbook many years ago; yet it still retains its appeal to modern Beauty Therapists. This book is an informative written academic text in the study of nail techniques and technology. Its main strength lies in its extensive anatomy and physiology text and illustrations; also covering in detail nail disorders and diseases which other texts fail to cover in as much detail. Unique features include its thorough treatment of artificial nail application; and although some techniques have advanced, this book covers useful advice on nail shapes and colour theory. An extensive description of manicure and Nail Technology tools and equipment are included, along with an excellent section describing how to polish nails. From my experience as a lecturer teaching `nail polishing'; this section is invaluable to beginning students, as nail polishing is one of the most difficult tasks to master. This book is an all round standard text for Nail Technology.

Even though I went through Cosmetology it was over 30 years ago and much has changed. I did not go into the buisness after completeing my training but recently was asked to do a friends nails!!! I had no idea how to do any of the new procedures so I'm buying every book possible to read so I can brush up on what I had learned and hopefully learn a lot more!!! The book itself is informative but if I had no backgound at all in the field of nails and manicures I'm not sure I would understand all the steps. I still would very much recomend this book to anyone wanting to learn, brush up on, or just read about doing nails.

This book is a technician's training manual. It is a practical text that offers information thoroughly on the subject. A well-written text that offers more on the subject that some others I've read.
