Episode #30

Question 1:  What is a Hindu Stone manicures and are they safe? They look similar to pedicure stones. How are the similar or different.

Question 2:  What about the removal of these nail coatings products with acetone? Does acetone penetrate into the skin and are there any studies that show it is harmful?

Question 3: My client has been on hormone replacement therapy for about a month and is noticing here nails are becoming very brittle. Could it be from the HRT?

Question 4: I was told that the bonds holding together the nail plate run longitudinally to help stop lengthwise splits and this meant that it was better to ‘remove shine’ in direction of nail growth or these bonds could be broken. But you said in another Episode that the direction of nail filing doesn’t matter.  Can you explain?
