1 Nair. BUFFER.

I 1 tp n eon filedniivember 11, 1926. Serial No. 147,775.

This invent-ion! relates, to naiL buffers or polisherstand comprehends, a buffer which includes ,a reservoir or magaz ne andan applicator-{forpowdered nail polish a ,Amongitsobjects the; invention conteln" plates an ilnprovedanail buffer prov dlngw'ln addition to,the,bufi'er elen1jent aanagazine' sec ion adapted toco'ntalnasupply of powdered nail polish together with means-for facilitating the application -ofthe polishto= the, nails. '1 1 The invention furthermore comprehends a combined buffer, polish magazine and applicator which is simple and compact in construction, inexpensive to manufacture and which is highly eflicient in its purpose.

lVith the above recited and other objects in View, reference is had to the following specification and accompanying drawings in which there is exhibited one example or embodiment of the invention which is in no way intended as a limitation upon the scope of the appended claims as it is to be clearly understood thatvariations and modifications which properly fall within the scope of said claims may be resorted to when found expedient.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a side view of a buffer;

Figure 2 is a transverse sectional view therethrough taken approximately -on the line 22 of Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a longitudinal sectional view taken approximately on the line 33 of Figure 2. Y

Referring to the drawings by characters of reference 10 designates generally'thebuffer section which includes a base -11, padding 12 enclosed by a suitable covering13, and a cap or head 14 which is ofa size to snugly receive the base with the padded portion .of the cover 13 exposed. The cap or head is provided with an outwardly projecting marginal flange 15 and arranged over the cover- 4 ing 13, and the head is the usual chamois polishing or buffing covering 16 which is held in place by a retaining 'member17. On its rear face the cap or head 14 is provided with a projecting boss 18. The magazine 5 and [applicator sectionor unit designated generally by the reference character 19 is'in the nature of a hollow body conforming approximately in size andv shape to the buffer or polishing element, the rear wall 20 thereof having an aperture or filling opening ,21' of asize to snugly receive the boss 18 whereby sections and 19 are frictionally connected, thesection 10 serving to close the filling opening. vzThe outer face or wall 22 of the section 19 is formed with' a plurality of outlet or discharge openings. 23, while the rear wall'21has a marginal: projecting flange 24. A polish applicator'cloth 25 is stretched and maintained over the face 22 and. side wall 26'of the section 19..by means ofretaining element 27 LA covering'section 28 of a size and shape to snugly fit either of the sections 10 and 19 is provided and said covering section is formed with a manipulating handle 29.

In practice the covering section 28 is normally engaged or fitted over the magazine and applicator section 19 so that the powdered polish which sifts through the opening 23 and on the face of the applicator cloth 25 is housed and protected. When the user desires to apply polish to the nails the covering section 28 is removed and placed over the buffer sections 10. After the desired amount of polish has been deposited to expose the buffer section for the buffing or polishing operation. 'When it is desired to fill the magazine or applicator section 19 the section 10 r is detached from the section '19 to uncover the filling opening 21.

From the foregoing it will thus be seen use and which is highly efficient in its purpose.

What I claim is:

1.'A magazine bufier and applicator including a buffer section, a magazine applicator section and a covering element having a handle adapted to selectively cover one of the sections when the other is being used.

2. A magazine buffer and applicator ineluding a buffer section, a magazine appli-' cator section and a covering element having a handle adapted to selectively cover one of the sections when the other is being used, the magazine section comprising a hollow body having outletsin its face, a filling opening and a porous covering thereover through which the contents are dispensed and by means of which said contents are applied.

3. A magazine buffer and applicator in eluding a bufit'er section, a magazine appli- 'upon the nails the covering section 28 is again posltioned over the applicator section cator section and a covering element having a handle adapted to selectively cover one of the sections when the other is being used, the magazine section comprising a hollow body having outlets in its face, a filling opening and a porous covering thereover through which the contents are dispensed and by means of which said contents are applied, the said sections being detachably associated whereby the magazine section filling opening is exposed for the introduction of the contents when the sections are separated, and whereby the same is covered when the sections are associated.

4. A combined magazine applicator and buffer including detachably connected butter and applicator sections, the latter comprising a hollow body having a filling opening on the inner face and discharge openings on the outer face, a porous applicator covering on said outer face and a covering element having a handle adapted to selectively cover one of the sections when the other is being used.

5. A combined magazine applicator and buffer including detachably connected butter and applicator sections, the latter comprising a hollow body having a filling opening on the inner face and discharge openings on the outer face, a porous applicator covering on said outer face and a covering element having a handle adapted to selectively cover one of the sections when the other is being used, the buffer section hiwing a boss frictionally engaging within the filler opening of the applicator section to constitute the detachable connection between the sections and to close the filling opening when the sections are attached.
