RE: [Histonet] I have reviewed Re: Nair to soften nails & Re: Tough Toenails in the archives. Ron Slyter recommend
All we do is put the nail in a blob of nair for at least 24 hours.
Then process as usual. After processing you can trim the block at bit
and then ice it really well. It cuts beautifully. We get them on a
weekly basis and also do special stains on them as well. I think
that it is cheaper than Calcium Hydroxide. Hope that helps.
