Nail Technician Professional - Qp5 - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The nail plate is very absorbent and too much water can cause splitting and peeling.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The nail plate is made up of layers of keratin, which is a porous material. This means that it can absorb water. When the nail plate absorbs too much water, it can cause the nails to become soft and weak, leading to splitting and peeling. Therefore, it is true that too much water can cause these issues with the nail plate.

    White spots on the nail are commonly caused by trauma to the nail plate, resulting in minor separation of the layers. This trauma can be caused by various factors such as injury, pressure, or repetitive activities. These white spots are typically harmless and will grow out with the nail over time.

    Explanation
    A nail technician is not qualified to diagnose medical conditions as they are not doctors or dermatologists.

    • B.

      Aggressive handling of natural nail

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Over filing, bad filing techniques
    B. Aggressive handling of natural nail
    D. Improper use of products
    Explanation
    A nail technician may damage a natural nail by over filing, bad filing techniques, aggressive handling of the natural nail, and improper use of products. Over filing can weaken and thin out the natural nail, making it more prone to breakage. Bad filing techniques, such as filing in the wrong direction or using too much pressure, can cause the nail to become weak and brittle. Aggressive handling of the natural nail, such as pulling or yanking on it, can cause damage and even lead to the nail lifting or separating from the nail bed. Improper use of products, such as using harsh chemicals or not following the manufacturer's instructions, can also cause damage to the natural nail.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Pregnancy

    • D.

      Stimulation of circulation in the nail matrix and nail bed

    Correct Answer
    B. Diet, vitamin or mineral intake
    Explanation
    Diet, vitamin or mineral intake does not affect nail growth. Nail growth is primarily determined by factors such as the season, pregnancy, and stimulation of circulation in the nail matrix and nail bed. While a balanced diet and proper intake of vitamins and minerals are important for overall health, they do not have a direct impact on the rate of nail growth.
