Application April 16, 1949, Serial No. 88,011

1 Claim. 1

This invention relates to a nail polish bottle stand with a magnifying glass.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a manicure stand with a magnifyin glass wherein the stand itself has a series of openings for receiving a magnifying glass which can be extended over a base having a groove in which the finger is located for efiecting the coating of the fingernail.

Other objects of the present invention are to provide a manicure stand with an adjustable magnifying glass which is of simple construction, inexpensive to manufacture, has a minimum number of parts, and is compact and convenient to use.

For other objects and for a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view of thenail polish bottle stand with the magnifying glass and embodyin the features of the present invention.

Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1

Referring now to the figures, l represents a base having a top surface II with a groove l2 therein adapted to receive a finger in the manner illustrated in Fig. 2. At one side of the base there is an upright portion [3 having an opening l4 for receiving a bottle I5 of nail polish. This bottle is of the usual size and shape and has a cap I6 thereon with a brush l1 fixed to it. The bottle projects above the portion 13 sufficiently so that it can be grasped by the thumb and finger of one hand while the top of the bottle is being removed therefrom or connected thereto. The upright portion l3 has on the side facing the groove I2 a thickened portion I8 with openings 19, 20 and 21 of different elevation. Each of these openings is adapted to receive a tapered end 22 of a rod 23 having a ring 24 thereon with a magnifying glass 25 within the ring.

The base I0 and the portion l3 are preferably integral with one another and can be made of plastic or any other suitable moldable material. The finger is rested in the groove l2 underneath the glass 25 and can be observed while using the brush I I. The magnifying glass can be placed at any one of the three locations on the upright portion.

The bottle loosely fits into the opening in the upright portion and can be refilled or replaced when empty. The openings in the upright portion are'tapered in order to receive the tapered portion 22.

This arrangement is inexpensive, makes nail polishing easier and heater, prevents spilling of the nail polish bottle and with the magnifying glass adjustable it can be adapted for the different persons using the stand. The arrangement can be used either in the home or professionally.

While various changes may be made in the detail construction, it shall be understood that such changes shall be within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claim.

Having thus set forth and disclosed the nature of my invention, what is claimed is:

A finger rest for applying nail polish to a finger, said finger rest having a base portion and an upright portion, said base portion having a groove therein for receiving the finger, and a magnifying glass extending from the upright portion over the groove by which the finger can be observed when applying the nail polish to the nail thereof, said magnifying glass having a rod portion, said upright portion having a plurality of vertically spaced openings, said upright portion removably receiving the rod portion of the magnifying glass in any single one of the vertically spaced openings.
