An Analysis of Correlation between Hands and Feet Satisfaction and the Recognition on Nail-Care of Female University Students
Hyo-Jin Bang
This study looked into the relationship between the satisfaction of hands, feet, and nails and nail care among female four-year-University students in Daejeon. The results were as follows. The sample of students showed 89.9% and 53.5% of manicure and pedicure necessity, respectively. The shape, size, and ratio of hands were perceived more satisfactory than those of feet, and the satisfaction of surface state and the ratio of nails was higher than that of toenails. The study showed that the lower your satisfaction of hands’ shape, size, and ratio and of nails’ surface state, thickness, elasticity, and ratio are, the higher the necessity the frequency of manicure. Also, the higher your satisfaction of toes’ ratio and of toenails’ surface state, ratio, thickness, and elasticity are, the more often you get pedicure, and the higher your satisfaction of feet’ shape, of toes’ ratio, and surface state are, the higher the necessity of pedicure. In conclusion, the results of this study indicate that the female university students who are less satisfied with their hands and finger nails are more willing to have a frequent manicure to cover it, while female university students who are generally satisfied with their feet and toenails are more willing to have a frequent pedicure to emphasize their beauty. It appears that this phenomenon derives from the seasonal effects where hands and feet are more exposed in some seasons than others.
