Salon Owner Aids in Turtle Rescue Using NSI Products


Last week we received an email from a Salon Owner in Israel about a truly unique encounter she was involved in. Shiri Keinan owner of Shiri Nails and Beauty Salon used her 15 years of professional nail experience to save a turtle’s life using NSI Attraction acrylic.

It all started when Shiri received an urgent phone call from her local veterinarian Dr. Ziv Dikman. Dr. Dikman explained that a 12 year old turtle had been run over by a car and its shell was badly crushed in several places. “Dr. Dikman knew I deal with all kinds of glues and acrylics and brilliantly thought that I might be helpful saving the turtle,” Shiri explains. At first she offered the vet nail glue to help repair the broken portions of shell but then she thought, “why not try NSI Acrylic? I remember reading an article about a nail technician who once helped a parrot with repairing his broken beak using acrylics.” Shiri took her NSI Attraction acrylic liquid and powder, a brush a nail forms and headed over to the vet.

When Shiri arrived at Dr. Dikman’s practice the sight was heart breaking. The small turtle had a large piece of shell completely missing and you could actually see its lung. “This poor turtle was a mess” Shiri explained, “I could actually hear for the first time in my life a turtle crying.” Shiri immediately jumped into action. She couldn’t use a nail primer because of the danger to the turtle’s exposed organ so she built an acrylic patch on a nail form to cover the area missing the shell. “I didn’t wait for full drying so I was able to bend it to the right angel,” She explained. Shiri attached the acrylic patch to the turtle shell using glue and fast drying spray. She then filled in all the other cracks on the shell and even belly with acrylic.

In total Shiri and Dr. Dikman worked on the turtle for 45 minutes. “The whole time I was thinking how my mom would be proud now that I was finally able to fulfill my childhood dream to become a vet,” Shiri said. “This is a real life Ninja Turtle, I think he now has the best shield in the world!”

The turtle was given antibiotics and a day later was doing much better. Shiri hopes with her help, the turtle will make a full recovery.
