Description



TECHNICAL FIELD

[0001] The current invention refers to a nail varnish or enamel remover device, specifically, to a nail varnish or paint applied on fingernails.

OBJECT OF THE INVENTION

[0002] The object of the present invention is to provide a device that contributes to the removal of the nail varnish applied on fingernails for treatment and simultaneously to the five fingers of the hand, wherein the removal is carried out without interfering, damaging or discomforting the tissue close to the treatment area.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0003] Currently, the most known and used method to remove nail varnish is to pour from a container the nail varnish remover on a cotton pad or absorbent material and to rub each finger nail at a time, repeating as often as necessary and using more cotton each time until the nail polish or varnish, or enamel is completely removed.

[0004] There is also a presentation of a nail varnish remover in a jar with an internal sponge, in which cases, the sponge has one to three small cuts in the middle of the sponge to introduce the fingers, the cut in the middle is very uncomfortable and impractical even for a single finger, since the height of the jar takes to injuring the connective tissue between the fingers contour by spinning, to remove the nail varnish, as it is necessary to support the rest of the hand on the rim of the jar, as a support to achieve the strength and leverage necessary to rub the fingernail in the sponge.

[0005] Considering that the current method is uncomfortable and impractical and seeking the comfort for fingers and tissue in between as well as to shorten the time that it actually takes to remove the nail varnish from all the fingers nails of the hands, it was thought in a device, described below, for any person that paints the fingernails and has the need to remove the nail polish or varnish, or enamel afterwards, the device can be domestically and commercially used.

[0006] Therefore, it is intended to protect this device by the means of this application, which consists of a circular pattern with holes, one for each of the five fingers of the hand and a part attachable to the container jar, preferably cylindrical, made of absorbent material and with spongy features, such as polyethylene sponge, similar materials or even natural material with a special cut to suit the position of the circular cuts where the fingers are placed in the circular part with holes. The device is placed within a jar commonly used in the cosmetic industry, made of polyethylene or polypropylene materials within nail varnish remover.

[0007] The parts, features and details of this device are clearly shown in the following description and the accompanying drawings.

TECHNICAL PROBLEM TO SOLVE

[0008] Although there are devices for nail varnish or nail enamel removal, these devices do not consider the situation of friction close to the treatment area, besides, the dimensions of it are constant, therefore the fingers of smaller size require more effort for treatment and the treatment is carried out one finger at a time.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0009] In order to address the above-mentioned problems, a device to remove the nail varnish or enamel was developed, which has a container with a substance for nail varnish or enamel removal, a sponge for friction and position tooling which has perforations to locate the fingers to come into contact with the sponge and afterwards, a rotational movement is carried out alternating in both directions to friction the nail varnish and removing it from the finger nails.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

[0010] FIG. 1 is a top view of the circular pattern with holes for the fingers of the hand.

[0011] FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the part made of spongy material with an inner circular cut.

[0015] FIG. 6 is a perspective view and a vertical cut of the assembled device within the container jar that shows the cut within the sponge.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0016] The present invention consists of a device that consists of a pattern of material resistant to solvents from the nail varnish remover such as polyethylene or polypropylene, or material with similar features, in the flat circular form piece with five holes to place the five fingers of the hand, one finger in each hole, respectively, accompanied by a part made of spongy material with an inner circular cut, deep enough to cover the entire finger nail but without reaching the bottom, in order for the nails to be always in contact with the sponge preventing to touch the jar at any time (13), this cut, meanwhile, will correspond to the position of the holes from the circular pattern (5).

[0017] The density and consistency of the material used for its preparation is made of a material commonly used in the cosmetic industry, such as polyethylene or polypropylene that is flexible enough to be snapped into the jar and rigid enough to remain in position once placed.

[0018] The inner part of spongy material will be some millimeters bigger than the inside of the jar (6) and it will render stability inside the jar in addition to provide gentle pressure upward between the circular pattern and the jar neck maintaining the device in optimal position for rotational operation always in the ideal position (11).

[0019] The system consisting of the circular pattern and the spongy part with the inner cut corresponding to the position of the holes from the circular pattern will be placed within the jar containing nail varnish remover (remover of enamel or varnish for painting nails). The measures of the device, the pattern and the size of the jar will vary according to the size of the jar in which it is contained, having, in any case, sufficient space to allow comfortable and comfortable mobility of the five fingers of each hand.

[0020] The five holes circular pattern is made by soft polypropylene material resistant to solvents used as a base in the manufacturing of nail varnish removers, with rounded edges on the outside for better mobility inside the jar (2 and 7). The inner circular cuts for introducing the fingers are also rounded (1) to provide better comfort, stability and security to the fingers of the hand when performing the rotational movement (8 and 9) inside the cuts of the part made of spongy material necessary to remove the enamel from the nails.

[0021] The hole for the thumb will be placed centrally (3) for the device to function both comfortably and practically for the right and the left hand.

[0022] The spongy part with inner circular cut is made of materials resistant to the solvents used as base for nail varnish removers. The inner circular cut (4 and 12) allows fingers to move freely inside and around it, providing a wider surface that will allow a longer life and efficiency of the sponge and provides better results than the devices existing in the market in which the paint from only one finger is removed at a time.

[0023] This new modality allows maintaining the sponge in a better performance status for more time, since a considerably wider surface (4, 12) this lengthens its lifetime as well as allows a better cleaning effect for the finger nails, since the articles currently available in the market get saturated faster by having to contain the nail varnish from all nails of the hands in a very small surface, only in the center of the sponge causing a slower operation in a short period of time and also causing staining of the finger nails even when the jar contains nail varnish remover in good condition; these problems will be decreased exponentially by the present invention.

[0024] The system of five holes in our device, in addition to allowing a better use of the nail varnish remover and the sponge and besides of cleaner results for a longer period, also allows working in at least one fifth of the time than the product with a system for only one finger nail at a time currently allows.

[0025] There are two ways or methods to elaborate the device; it can be done by plastic injection using a mold suitable for the process, blowing or casting injection vacuum forming, which is another manufacturing method of plastic parts, using also a mold suitable for described process with the adequate equipment.

[0026] The inner circular cut in the part made of spongy material can be done by various methods among manual cutting, mechanical cutting, such as shear or with laser cutter.

[0027] The use of this invention is applicable to the general population, mostly female population that desire to paint the finger nails; it can be used at home and by hand care professionals, called manicurists or hairstylists.

[0028] The materials, form, size and disposition of the elements will be susceptible of variation, if this does not alter the specialty of the invention.

[0029] The terms used in this invention must be considered always broad and non-limited, since the device can have additional and varied uses.
