Nj Cosmetology State Board Exam: Nail Diseases & Disorders

This quiz was created in order to help those who are planning on taking the NJ State Board Exam for Cosmetology. I plan on creating a quiz for each subject within Cosmetology. Please do not hesitate to inform me if you see any incorrect questions or answers, or if you would like to add anything to the quiz. I took these facts straight from my school's "fact sheet" given to each student to study. No one is perfect, so please, please, please let me know if you feel something may be incorrect. Thank you and I hope this proves helpful!
