DRIER FOR POLISHED NAILS Filed Nov. 50, 1958 INVENTOR Jean Goodman.

BY 2 g E ATTORNEY Patented Dec. 26, 1939 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 5 Claims.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a drier for polished nails.

The invention has for an object the construction of a drier which is characterized by a hollow body having an open side through which the fingers of ones hand may be inserted, and a novel arrangement for producing and controlling heated air for assisting in drying the nails rap-- idly.

Still further the invention proposes the provision of a flexible closure extending over the open side to assist in maintaining the heated air within a restricted compass for drying the nails.

For further comprehension of the invention and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims-in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:-

Fig. 1 is a front elevational view of a drier constructed according to this invention.

Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1 with fingers applied thereto.

\ Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary enlarged sectional view on the line 4--4 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the device.

The drier for polished nails, according to this invention, includes a hollow body ill having an open side ll through which the fingers 12 of ones hand may be inserted. A closed compartment I3 is arranged within the hollow body l and is provided with a perforated top wall I upon which the fingers may rest. A hot air producing mechanism is mounted within the compartment and essentially consists of a lamp l for producing heat, or other similar heater, and an electric fan I6 for blowing the heat upwards through the perforations H.

A fiexible closure I1 is extended over-the open side II and is secured along its top edge by fastening elements Hi to the top edge of the open side II. It is possible to place ones fingers beneath the flexible closure H and upon the perforated top wall M.

A shut-off plate I9 is mounted beneath the perforated top wall M to normally close the perforatlons thereof. A means is provided for moving said plate to open the perforations and is controlled with ones finger. The plate I9 is supported by several headed studs 20. Coaxial springs 2| are mounted upon these studs and normally urge the plate upwards into intimate contact with the bottom face of the perforated wall It. The plate I9 is formed with perforations which are out of line with the perforations of the wall M. A top headed stud 2| projects 5 from the top of the plate I9 and extends through the perforated wall l4 and is adapted to be pressed downwards by ones finger as illustrated in Fig. 2 for spacing the plate Hi from the wall M. The hot air may then pass up 10 through the perforations of the wall 14.

An electric switch 22 and a connecting plug 23 are also provided for the device.

The operation of the device is as follows:

Immediately after nail polish is applied to the nails the fingers are placed within the flexible closure l1 and through the open side ll of the hollow body and upon the perforated wall I4. The stud 2] is depressed and the heated air from within the compartment l3 will pass up through the perforated Wall l4 into the hollow body I0 and assist in drying the nails.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise construction herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:-

1. A drier for polished nails, comprising a hollow body having an open side through which the fingers of ones hand may be inserted, a closed compartment in said hollow body and having a perforated top wall upon which ones fingers may be rested, a hot air producing mechanism within said compartment, a shut-off plate mounted beneath said perforated top wall to close said perforations, means for moving said plate to open said perforations and controlled with ones finger, and a flexible closure mounted over the open side of said hollow body, said flexible closure being supported at its top along the top of said opening and the. other portions of the flexible closure depending and engageable about ones wrist for almost completely closing said open side to prevent the loss of air therethrough. I

2. In a drier for polished nails, a hollow body having a perforated top wall upon which ones hand is adapted to be rested, means within said body for blowing a blast of hot air through said perforations and over ones finger nails to dry the polish thereon, a plurality of downwardly extending headed studs mounted on the bottom face of said perforated top wall, a shut off plate slidably mounted on said headed studs, means for urging said shut oil. plate upwards into contact with the bottom face of said top wall to prevent said heated air from passing through said perforations when ones hand is not on said top wall, and means for causing said shut of! plate to be spaced vfrom the bottom face of said top wall under the weight of ones hand while resting on said top wall to permit said heated air to pass through said perforations.

3. In a drier for polished nai1s,-a hollow body having a perforated top wall upon which ones hand is adapted to be rested, means within said body for blowing a blast of hot air through said perforations and over ones finger nails to dry the polish thereon, a plurality of downwardly extending headed studs mounted on the bottom face of said perforated top wall, a shut of! plate slidably mounted on said headed studs, means for urging said shut of! plate upwards into contact with the bottom face of said top wall to prevent said heated air -from passing through said perforations when ones hand is not on said top wall, and means for causing said shut off plate to be spaced from the bottom face of said top wall under the weight of ones hand while resting on said top wall to permit said heated air to pass through said perforations, said firstmentioned means, comprising expansion springs coaxially mounted on said studs and operating between the adjacent faces of the heads on said studs and the bottom face of said shut off plate.

4. In a drier for polished nails, a hollow body having a perforated top wall upon which ones hand is adapted to be rested, means within said body for blowing a blast of hot air through said perforations and over ones finger nails to dry the polish thereon, a plurality of downwardly extending headed studs mounted on the bottom face of said perforated top wall, a shut off plate slldably mounted on said headed studs, means for urging said shut off plate upwards into contact with the bottom face of said top wall to prevent said heated air from passing through said perforations when ones hand is not on said top wall, and means for causing said shut off plate to be spaced from the bottom face or said top wall under the weight of ones hand while resting on said top wall to permit said heated air to pass through said perforations, said lattermentioned means, comprising a headed plunger freely passing through an opening formed in the top wall of said hollow body and having its inner end mounted on the top face of said shut oi! plate and depressible under the weight of ones hand to urge said shut off plate downwards against the action of said first-mentiond means.

5. In a drier for polished nails, a hollow body having a perforated top wall upon which ones hand-is adapted to be rested, means within said body for blowing a blast of hot air through said perforations and over ones finger nails to dry the polish thereon, a plurality of downwardly ex tending headed studs mounted on the bottom face of said perforated top wall, a shut off plate slidably mounted on said headed studs, means for urging said shut off plate upwards into contact with the bottom face of said top wall to prevent said heated air from passing through said perforations when ones hand is not on said top wall, and means for causing said shut of! plate to be spaced from the bottom face of said top wall under the weight of ones hand while resting on said top wall to permit said heated air to pass through said perforations, said shut oil plate having a plurality of perforations out of alignment with relation to the perforations in said top wall and through which said heated air is adapted to pass before passing through the perforations in said top wall when said shut of! plate is spaced from said top wall.
