The easiest and best way for people to achieve and keep beautiful fingernails and toenails is by making regular visits to a professional manicurist and pedicurist. Here their nails will be trimmed and filed to their proper length and shape, the cuticles will be softened, pushed back, and trimmed if necessary, and a protective coat of nail varnish will be applied to guard against splitting, peeling, and other damage.

The work of the professional manicurist no longer stops there, however - never before in history has such a variety of artificial nail products been available to extend, repair or simply strengthen the nail plate; never before has the colouring of the nail plate reached such heights of artistic achievement. To fulfil the demands of present- day clients, the modem manicurist and pedicurist needs to be conversant with more than simply the basic knowledge of her trade. Her status has rapidly changed from that of a person who simply cared for the appearance of the natural nails and their immediate surroundings, to that of a nail technician, capable of drawing on advances in modem technology to allow her clients to enjoy the luxury of long, matching, beautiful nails at all times.

As a reflection of these trends, this training manual encompasses all the information that the modem manicurist and pedicurist will need during the course of her training and career.
