The name of the concept the inventor has chosen is Nail Polish Corrector, although she is open to the possibility of a name change and reserves final approval regarding the official name.   Branding is important, of course, but the concept is the official foundation for the invention and any forthcoming applications of the invention.

 The concepts Ms. Drummy has envisioned includes several variations that all represent an improvement over the corrective pens currently available on the market.  In order to prevent making more mistakes when using a corrective pen, Ms. Drummy’s pens have tight, neat tips, so users can be more precise when removing excess polish from the skin around the nails.  A further, more detailed explanation of the functionality of this invention will be elaborated upon in the following segment.


Nail Polish Corrector 3d image 2Ms. Drummy has been designing and documenting this concept for quite some time.  She has several “mock-up” drawings of the invention, which have provided the inventor with a sense of how the concept will appear once brought into production.  This is beneficial for making any necessary modifications and revisions for improvements; thus promoting a more satisfactory and overall accommodating product.

As currently designed in the technical drawings and 3-D models, the invention has unique features not presently available in the marketplace.  Although the system has not yet been engineered and is still in the 3-D developmental stages, an explanation of possible functionality is as follows:

 These new Nail Polish Correctors fall into three categories, all with fine tips to make it easier to be precise when removing excess nail polish from the skin and cuticles around the nails.  There are two styles of disposable corrector sticks.  The dry sticks are designed to be dipped into a bottle of polish remover, returning frequently or for one time use to keep the tip moist enough to remove the unwanted polish.  An alternative disposable sticks would be pre-moistened and available in a sealed package which keeps the tips moist until they are used.  Both of these are designed to be used one time and then discarded.  Corrective sticks are designed to be used with bottled nail polish remover.  One version attaches to the underside of the cap on a bottle of nail polish, and the other is designed to be dipped into the bottle.  This second one would come with replacement tips, so the tip can be changed when it becomes discolored by old nail polish.   For those who like using conventional corrective pens, Ms. Drummy has designs for improved versions.  Her pens would have a clicker or button that can be pushed to release more polish into the tip when it is needed.  The pen could also be designed to have part of it that could turn clockwise to release more nail polish remover.  This eliminates trying to remove polish with a tip that is too dry to do the job.  When the clicker, turning mechanism on the top or the button near the tip is pushed, a small amount of remover would be released to moisten the tip.  All of these new Nail Polish Correctors would have the same tight, neat tip, making is easier to be precise when removing the excess nail polish.

The unique features of this invention will provide the following benefits for consumers everywhere:

  • Re-designed tips for nail polish correctors which are trim and tight, so excess nail polish on the skin around the nail can be removed neatly

  • Different versions, disposable and reusable, will be available so consumers have a choice 

  • All are designed to eliminate having to use correctors with bulky tips or tips that are not moist enough 

  • Provide precision correction and will erase polish smudges from fingertips and cuticles easily

  • Easier and more precise to use than a cotton swab, with handles long enough so these will not be lost inside a bottle of polish remover
