Manicuring Course

Artificial Nails

Attachment to the machine that actually does the filing. Bit
Balanced bits that do not wobble or vibrate. Concentric
Long, slender cut or groove found on carbide and Swiss carbide bits. Flute
Number of abrasive particles per square inch. Grit
Number of times a bit rotates in 1 minute (RPM). Revolutions Per Minute
Grooves carved into the nail caused by filing with bits at the incorrect angle. Rings of Fire
Power of machine or its ability to keep turning when applying pressure during filing. Torque
Thin, elongated board with a rough surface. Abrasive Board
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene ABS
Lightweight, rectangular abrasive block. Buffer Block
Nail wrap made of silk, linen, or fiberglass. Fabric Wrap
Very thin synthetic mesh with a loose weave. Fiberglass
Closely woven, heavy material used for nail wraps. Linen
Artificial nail made of ABS or tenite acetate polymer that is adhered to the natural nail to add length. Nail Tip
Liquid or gel-like product made from cyanoacrylate monomer, and used to secure a nail tip to the natural nail. Nail Tip Adhesive
Nail-size pieces of cloth or paper that are bonded to the top of the nail plate with nail adhesive; often used to repair or strengthen natural nails or nail tips. Nail Wrap
Thickened cyanoacrylate monomers. No-Light-Gel
Temporary nail wrap made of very thin paper. Not nearly as strong as fabric wraps. Paper Wrap
Piece of fanric cut to completely cover a crack or break in the nail during a 4-week fabric wrap maintenance procedure. Repair Patch
Thin, natural material with a tight weave that becomes transparent when adhesive is applied. Silk
Strip of fabric, 1/8" long, applied during a 4-week fabric wrap rebalance to repair or strengthen a weak point in a nail enhancement. Stress Strip
Implement similar to a nail clipper, designed especially for use on nail tips. Tip Cutter
Powder in white, clear, pink, and many other colors that will be combined with acrylic monomer liquid to form the sculptured nail. Acrylic Polymer Powder
Acrylic Methacrylate
Substance that speeds up chemical reactions between monomer liquid and polymer powder. Catalyst
Process that joins together monomers to create very long polymer chains; also called "polymerization reaction". Chain Reaction
Nail enhancement product that is slighty different from acrylic (methacrylate) products. These systems use monomers that have a very low odor. Odorless Acrylic Product
Substance formed by combining many small molecules (monomers), into very long chain-like structures. Polymer
Chemical reaction that creates polymers; also called curing or hardening. Polymerization
Method for maintaining the beauty, durability, and longevity ofthe nail enhancement. Rebalancing
Tacky surface left on the nail once a UV gel has cured. Inhibition Layer
Short chain of monomers that is not long enough to be considered a polymer. Oligomer
Gel is applied over the entire surface of the nail. One-Color Method
Two different colors of gel are applied to the surface of the nail, in different places, as in a French manicure. Two-Color Method
Main ingredient used to create UV gel nail enhancements (aka Urethane Methacrylate Oligomer). Urethane Acrylate Oligomer
Type of nail enhancement product that hardens when exposed to a UV light. UV Gel
Specialized electronic device that powers and controls UV lights to cure UV gel nail enhancements. UV Lamp
Special bulb that emits UV light to cure UV gel nail enhancements. UV Lightbulb
Measure of how much electricity a lightbulb consumes. Wattage
