    Correct Answer
    C. Soften so that during the manicure procedure the cuticles are soft enough to be pushed back.

By using these cards, you can gather details about the client's nail health, shape, length, and any specific concerns they may have. This organized approach allows you to refer back to the information later and track any changes or improvements in the client's nails over time. Additionally, consultation cards can serve as a communication tool between nail technicians, ensuring consistent and accurate information is shared among the team.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Bruises
    B. Warts
    D. Skin and nail infection
    Explanation
    The correct answer is bruises, warts, and skin and nail infection. Manicures involve the manipulation and grooming of the nails and surrounding skin. Bruises can be painful and sensitive, so it is not recommended to perform a manicure on bruised areas. Warts are caused by a viral infection and can be contagious, so it is important to avoid contact and manipulation of warts during a manicure. Skin and nail infections can spread and worsen with the use of manicure tools, so it is best to avoid performing a manicure if there is an active infection present.
