;,,Another object of'this invention resides in the construction of a display device orthe type described which is characterized ,by a form upon which ones hand maybe rested, said form having a recess for receiving and holding ones wrist for steadying ones hand, and also having finger recesses for receiving ones finger .tips. It is proposed that the finger nail tips displaying the diiierent shades be removab-ly mounted across said finger recesses.

Still further the invention rop ses the con struction of a form provided with a recess into] which the palm and fingersof ones hand may 7 be engaged and which is provided with a latch means; or holding the nail polish tips in :posi-' tion across the fingertip portions and the re- 0 palm cess in amanner to permit ones nails to .be engaged beneath the nailpolish tips when the and fingers are rested inthe recess. a

Still another object of the invention proposes the provision of a novel latch means forsecurely mounting the nail polish tips in position across the fingertip portion of the'reccsses in a manner which will permit the nail polish tips Still another object of the invention proposes connecting the nail polish tips, which form a set, together by means of a flexible strand in a manner to permittheir engagement with the latch means and removal therefrom as a unit.

Still another obiectof the invention proposes providing a number of sets" of nail polish tipswith each set being differently colored in aman: her to be selectively used with the 'form in" a manner to permit the proper shade of nail polish to be determined.

For further comprehension of I the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, 'ref- T erenoe' will be hadto the following description and accompanying drawings,and to the ap- 25, 1944, Serial N 537,314 16 Claims. (Gl.f35-59) v on line 0 Fi -li- .1 :1-

a Fig. 9 is a perspective view of aportion of one set nail polish tips for use in connection withthe form shownin Figs. 5 to 7. I Q Y s I In accordance with the form oi the invention disclosed in Figs. 1-4, the display devicefor determining thefshades of fingernail polish in;- cludes a form formed "witha recess toreceive the palm of oneshand, asIschematicallyindi catedbythe dot and dash lines 31, Thi form is provided with arecess 32 for receiving. ones wristfor ste'adying the hand.' also providedwith a plurality'of finger recesses 33 for receiving ones finger tips. The extremi ties 1 of these recesses 33 are provided with grooves 34 forming tracks" forremovable nail tips 35. These finger"nail tips.35 are: colored with a particular shade. The set'of fingernail tips 35 may be. easily slipped outfrom the'grooves '34 and replaced with similar tips of a difierent shade. A. water reservoir 30 is provided in the 'form .30 for dipping. one -fingers in the reservoir so asto soften the cuticles before the cuticles'are l p flr 1 The operation of the device is as follows:

e.hand is placed upon the form 30 so that The the wrist is supported'in the groove 32.".

' pended'iclaimsin which-the various novel feao5 engage beneath the finger nail tips 35 at the front of thefinger'recesses j33. 'Iheflnger nails will be located beneath the finger nail tips 35' so that one may view the appearance of. ones hand with the particular shadeof polish on'the finger nail; tips 35; These tips may be exchanged. .for

other tip displaying different shades, until the right shade is selected.

The display device for determining the shade of fingernail polish, according to this invention,

to the connection of the fingertips of a set by means of the flexible strand I3, all of the fingertips may be lifted from the form 10.

Another set of fingertips having a. different as embodied in Figs. to 9 proposes the construc- 5 color nail polish applied thereto is then engaged tion of a form [0 having a recess ll into which with the form in and the above procedure is the palm and fingers of ones hand may be enrepeated.
