Title (EN) TOOL FOR REMOVING FINGER NAIL POLISH
(FR) INSTRUMENT PERMETTANT D'ENLEVER LE VERNIS A ONGLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A hand-held nail polish removal tool (10) for use in removing nail polish comprises a hollow base portion (12) for receiving and containing nail polish remover (17). A cap portion (14) is secured to the hollow base portion (12) with the nail polish remover (17) receivable into the cap portion (14) from the hollow base portion (12). At least one rest member (28) is secured to either, or both, the hollow base portion (12) and/or the cap portion (14). A porous applicator material (16) is removably secured to the cap portion (14) with the nail polish remover (17) receivable into the porous material (16) from the cap portion (14), and substantially retained within the porous material (16) such that contacting pressure of the porous material (16) with a fingernail, or the like, releases at least a partial amount of the nail polish remover (17) from the porous material (16) onto the fingernail, or the like. The rest member (28) maintains a fluid level of the nail polish remover (17) at a position below the porous applicator material (16) when the removal tool (10) is positioned upon a substantially level horizontal surface.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un instrument portatif permettant d'enlever le vernis à ongles. Ledit instrument comporte un manche creux servant à recevoir et à contenir du solvant de vernis à ongles. Une tête est fixée au manche et permet au solvant de couler du manche vers la tête. Au moins un élément d'appui est fixé au manche et/ou à la tête. Un applicateur constitué d'un matériau poreux est fixé sur la tête et recueille le solvant dans le matériau poreux à partir de la tête. Le matériau poreux retient le solvant de manière significative de telle sorte que la pression de contact dudit matériau poreux avec la surface d'un ongle ou analogue laisse échapper une certaine quantité de solvant du matériau poreux vers la surface de l'ongle ou analogue. L'élément d'appui maintient le niveau du liquide solvant dans une position située au-dessous du matériau poreux de l'applicateur lorsque l'instrument est placé sur une surface sensiblement horizontale.
