    The sealer or finisher layer of a UV gel product is applied to seal and protect the coatings on the entire nail surface. It acts as a barrier, preventing any damage or wear to the underlying layers of gel polish or nail art. Additionally, by wrapping the sealer or finisher layer under the natural free edge of the nail, it provides extra protection to this vulnerable area, reducing the chances of chipping or peeling. Overall, the sealer or finisher layer ensures the longevity and durability of the nail coatings, keeping them intact and looking flawless for a longer period of time.

    A test-wise student begins to prepare for a test by practicing good study habits and:

    • A.

      Feeling concerned

    • B.

      Time management

    • C.

      Unorganized management

    • D.

      Cramming for examinations

    Correct Answer
    B. Time management
    Explanation
    The correct answer is time management. This is because practicing good study habits and feeling concerned are not directly related to how the student prepares for the test. Unorganized management is the opposite of good study habits and would not be helpful in preparing for the test. Cramming for examinations may not be an effective strategy for long-term retention of information. Therefore, time management is the most logical choice as it implies that the student is allocating their time effectively to study and prepare for the test.

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    C. Commission
    Explanation
    Commission is the correct answer because it refers to compensation that is directly tied to the total amount of service dollars generated for a salon. In other words, employees earn a percentage or a fixed amount for each sale or service they provide. This incentivizes them to generate more revenue for the salon, as their earnings are directly linked to their performance. Unlike minimum wage or salary, commission-based compensation is variable and depends on the employee's sales or service performance. A bonus, on the other hand, is typically an additional reward given for exceptional performance, but it is not directly tied to the total amount of service dollars generated.
