Format: Paperback
This makes an excellent textbook for the practicing manicurist and pedicurist. It is a very useful and detailed guide with plenty of information. It has information on the anatomy of the hand, nails and feet, information on tools, equipment, health and hygiene, products, nail problems and disorders, setting up a business, professional conduct, manicure and pedicure procedure (what to avoid), and how to do nail extensions. This is a book that one must have and it can certainly be described as a manicurist's 'bible'.
However there are not many pictures to guide through the procedures which can make things a bit awkward and difficult especially if you are still a learner.

I found this book to be very helpful, as there is not a lot of information available on these topics. It does look dated, however the techniques and infections haven't changed much

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.

Format: Paperback
This book was recommended by my course tutor. Knowing nothing about nail technology or the anatomy of it I have referred to this book every time we have homework assessments. Without it, I would be lost and recommend it to everyone starting out in the nail industry with a view to a career.
