  • Patent number: 11327565
    Abstract: A cotton strip is adhered to a piece of aluminum foil, and aluminum foil is wrapped onto a mold simulating a finger, with the cotton strip on an interior side of the foil. Self-adherent fabric is wrapped around the foil on the mold. The self-adherent fabric is then treated with an electrically conductive solution, such as an electrolyte. The tip, including cotton, foil, fabric, and solution, is then formed into a sealed electrically conductive tip ready for use. At the time of use, acetone is applied to the cotton strip via a dropper or comparable mechanism, and the tip is placed on a finger to initiate the removal of nail polish, gel nail polish, or a nail overlay from a natural fingernail. The removal process enables use of a cell phone or other device with a touchscreen during the process.

  • Patent number: 10292766
    Abstract: A cutting element for a cutting head for a device for cutting hair is disclosed. A laser beam is directed across a cutting zone, in the cutting head, substantially parallel to a user's skin. The laser beam has an effective cutting region in which the laser beam is of a sufficient intensity to cut hair entering said region. The cutting element has a guard adjacent to the cutting zone to contact a user's skin and space the laser beam there from. The guard has a non-planar shape in a direction extending across the cutting zone so that it substantially follows the contours of an edge of the effective cutting region of the laser beam to reduce any variation in the distance between the edge of the effective cutting region and the user's skin across the length of the cutting zone.

The apparatus provided with an image drawing unit for drawing an image on a nail of a finger or a nail of a toe and an elevation mechanism having a placing unit on which the finger or the toe is placed. The elevation mechanism moves the placing unit from a stand-by position up to an image drawing position. When the placing unit is at the stand-by position, the user can insert user's finger or user's toe into or remove user's finger or user's toe from the apparatus. When at the image drawing position, the image drawing unit can draw an image on the nail of the finger. An elevation controlling unit controls the operation of the elevation mechanism in response to an operation of the finger or the toe placed on the placing unit, pressing the same downward.
