Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Gel nail is hardened by

    • A.

      Air dry

    • B.

      Fan

    • C.

      Ultra violet light (UV light)

    • D.

      Neon light

    Correct Answer
    C. Ultra violet light (UV light)
    Explanation
    Gel nails are hardened by ultra violet light (UV light) because the gel polish contains photo-initiators that react when exposed to UV light. These photo-initiators start a chemical reaction that causes the gel polish to harden and cure. UV light is used specifically because it emits the necessary wavelength to activate the photo-initiators and ensure proper curing of the gel nails. Air dry, fan, and neon light do not emit the required UV light wavelength, thus they cannot effectively harden gel nails.

    What part of the body can the manicurist not massage?

    • A.

      Arm

    • B.

      Hand

    • C.

      Feet

    • D.

      Head & Neck

    Correct Answer
    D. Head & Neck
    Explanation
    The manicurist cannot massage the head and neck because their primary focus is on providing nail and hand care services. Massaging the head and neck is typically done by a massage therapist or a specialist in that area. The manicurist's expertise lies in nail treatments and hand care, so they are not trained or equipped to provide massages to the head and neck.

    Wrap nail can be used for

    • A.

      Onychophagy

    • B.

      Onychocryptosis

    • C.

      Bruised nail

    • D.

      Paronychia

    Correct Answer
    A. Onychophagy
    Explanation
    Onychophagy refers to the habit of biting one's nails. A wrap nail can be used as a solution to prevent or discourage nail biting. It is a method where a thin layer of material, such as acrylic or gel, is applied over the natural nail to create a protective barrier. This barrier makes it difficult for an individual to bite their nails, helping them break the habit and promote healthier nail growth.

    A nail technician can not touch

    • A.

      Hand and arm muscle

    • B.

      Dermis

    • C.

      Epidermis

    Correct Answer
    B. Dermis
    Explanation
    A nail technician cannot touch the dermis because the dermis is the second layer of the skin, located beneath the epidermis. It contains blood vessels, nerves, and hair follicles, making it sensitive and prone to injury. Nail technicians are trained to work on the nails and surrounding tissues, but they should not penetrate or touch the dermis to avoid causing harm or infection to the client.

    Top coat will be applied after

    • A.

      Polish

    • B.

      Base

    • C.

      Nail hardener

    • D.

      Buffer

    Correct Answer
    A. Polish
    Explanation
    The given sequence represents the order in which different products are applied to the nails. The base coat is usually applied first to create a smooth surface and protect the nails. Next, a nail hardener may be applied to strengthen the nails. Then, a buffer may be used to smooth out any imperfections. Finally, the top coat, which is a clear polish, is applied as the last step to add shine and protect the nail color. Therefore, the correct answer is Polish, as it is the last product to be applied.

  • 6. 

    The bit should always be placed on the nail

    • A.

      At a 10 degree angle

    • B.

      At a 35 degree angle

    • C.

      At a 45 degree angle

    • D.

      Flat

    Correct Answer
    D. Flat
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Flat" because when placing a bit on a nail, it is most effective to position it flat against the nail surface. Placing the bit at an angle may result in a less secure grip and could cause the bit to slip off the nail. Therefore, keeping the bit flat ensures better stability and control while working with the nail.

Metal pushers, if used improperly or with excessive force, can cause injury to the matrix, leading to pain, bleeding, or even infection. It is important to handle metal pushers with care and use them gently to avoid damaging the matrix during a pedicure.

    • A.

      File two long nails

    • B.

      File two short nails

    • C.

      Don't file

    Correct Answer
    A. File two long nails
    Explanation
    The given answer suggests filing two long nails because the hand has three short nails and two long nails. Since the instruction is to file, it is logical to file the two long nails to achieve a consistent length across all nails. Filing the short nails would not be necessary as they are already short.

    Nail technician need to refuse paraffin wax for a client who has

    • A.

      Sensitive skin

    • B.

      Skin allergies

    • C.

      Impaired circulation

    • D.

      Artificial nail

    Correct Answer
    C. Impaired circulation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is impaired circulation. Impaired circulation can cause poor blood flow, which can lead to various complications such as slow healing, increased risk of infection, and decreased sensation. Paraffin wax treatments involve immersing the hands or feet in warm wax, which can further restrict blood flow. Therefore, it is important for a nail technician to refuse paraffin wax for a client with impaired circulation to avoid any potential harm or complications.

    A. Pathogenic
    Explanation
    Disinfection is a process that involves killing or eliminating harmful microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Pathogenic bacteria refer to those bacteria that can cause diseases or infections in humans or animals. Therefore, the correct answer is "Pathogenic" as disinfection can kill this type of bacteria. Non-pathogenic bacteria, on the other hand, are harmless and do not cause any diseases. Leukonychia is a condition characterized by white spots or lines on the nails and is not related to bacteria or disinfection.

    The correct answer is to refuse service and suggest the client to see a physician. Itchy and red spots in the form of rings could be indicative of a skin condition such as ringworm or eczema. As a nail technician, it is important to prioritize the client's health and safety. Refusing service and recommending them to consult a physician ensures that they receive the appropriate medical attention and prevents the potential spread of any contagious skin conditions.

    Correct Answer
    A. Prevent stains from polish color
    Explanation
    The purpose of a base coat is to prevent stains from the polish color. By applying a base coat before the colored polish, it creates a barrier between the nail and the pigment, preventing any staining or discoloration on the nail bed. This is especially important when using dark or highly pigmented nail polishes that have a tendency to stain the nails. Using a base coat helps to keep the nails looking clean and prevents any unwanted color transfer.

    How should nail on feet be shaped?

    • A.

      Pedicure

    • B.

      Manicure

    • C.

      Hand care

    Correct Answer
    A. Pedicure
    Explanation
    Pedicure is the correct answer because it specifically refers to the care and treatment of the feet and toenails. When getting a pedicure, the nails on the feet are shaped in a specific way to ensure they are neat and aesthetically pleasing. This may involve trimming, filing, and buffing the nails to the desired shape. Manicure, on the other hand, focuses on the care and treatment of the hands and fingernails, so it is not applicable to shaping the nails on the feet. Hand care is a more general term that can encompass both manicure and pedicure, but it does not specify the shaping of the nails on the feet.

Massaging the arm up to the elbow helps to release tension and increase blood flow in the muscles and tissues of the forearm. Additionally, focusing the massage on the elbow joint can help to alleviate any discomfort or stiffness in that area.

    What kind of compound is used to stop bleeding?

    • A.

      Alum powder

    • B.

      Alcohol

    • C.

      Glue

    Correct Answer
    A. Alum powder
    Explanation
    Alum powder is used to stop bleeding because it has astringent properties. When applied to a wound, alum powder causes the blood vessels to constrict, reducing blood flow and promoting clotting. This helps to stop bleeding and facilitate the healing process. Alcohol and glue do not possess these astringent properties and therefore are not effective in stopping bleeding.

    What is the maximum amount of plate that should cover the nail?

    • A.

      10%

    • B.

      50%

    • C.

      75%

    • D.

      90%

    Correct Answer
    B. 50%
    Explanation
    The maximum amount of plate that should cover the nail is 50%. This means that the nail should be covered by at most half of the plate. If the plate covers more than 50% of the nail, it may lead to an imbalance or instability, potentially causing discomfort or damage to the nail. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the plate covers the nail adequately but not excessively.

    WHat forms when skin thickens and hardens?

    • A.

      Cholasma

    • B.

      Keloid

    • C.

      Callus

    • D.

      Lentigines

    Correct Answer
    C. Callus
    Explanation
    When skin is subjected to repeated friction or pressure, it can respond by thickening and hardening, forming a callus. Calluses typically develop on the hands, feet, or any other area that experiences frequent rubbing or irritation. They serve as a protective mechanism for the skin, preventing further damage. Unlike cholasma, keloid, or lentigines, callus formation is specifically characterized by the thickening and hardening of the skin.

    What can be added to nail polish to thin it?

    • A.

      Solvent

    • B.

      Sealer

    • C.

      Lacquer

    • D.

      Hydrogen peroxide

    Correct Answer
    A. Solvent
    Explanation
    Solvent is the correct answer because it is commonly used to thin nail polish. Nail polish can become thick and clumpy over time, making it difficult to apply. Adding a solvent, such as acetone or ethyl acetate, helps to break down the polish and make it easier to spread evenly on the nails. Solvents also help to restore the original consistency of the polish, allowing it to dry faster and last longer. Sealer, lacquer, and hydrogen peroxide are not typically used to thin nail polish.

      Pterygium

    Correct Answer
    A. Onychorrhexis
    Explanation
    Onychorrhexis refers to split or brittle nails that have lengthwise ridges. This condition can be caused by various factors such as aging, nutritional deficiencies, excessive use of nail products, and certain medical conditions. The ridges in onychorrhexis are typically parallel to each other and can make the nails appear weak and prone to breakage. Onychorrhexis is a common issue and can be managed with proper nail care and addressing any underlying causes.
