I’ve always been a massive fan of nail buffers. Not the most glamourous sentence I’ve ever written I have to admit, but if you don’t use one as part of your at-home mani routine then I would really recommend it. They are especially wonderful if your nails have been damaged by rough gel nail removal (like mine recently… I fall in and out of love with gel nails all the time as they really don’t leave my nails in a good way… but that’s another story!)
JML got in touch last month and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing their new Bare Nails gadget. Having been a fan of their Ped Egg exfoliator in the past, I was intrigued to try this new gadget and even more so when I found out it was an electrical nail buffer!
It’s a battery powered device with interchangeable heads that let you file your nails, remove dead skin and buff and shine your nails. The device itself is quite compact and ergonomic, so it’s easy to handle and use. It works at one speed in a spinning motion and the heads are foam so really easily interchangeable. I found the filing head a little tricky to use at first, especially as I prefer my nails in a square shape, but after a couple of nails I got the hang of it and really like filing my nails with this now. I’ve also tried out the Callus head as well for dead skin on my feet and without going into too much detail (gross!) it really does work! Of course, being the buffer fanatic that I am, the smoothing and shine heads were the ones I was most interested in, and they really didn’t disappoint. They make buffing my nails not only quicker, but also work more effectively than a traditional nail buffer.
If you’ve never buffed your nails before and don’t know how much of a difference it makes, it basically makes your natural nails super smooth and shiny. It can also make the tips of your nails appear whiter and generally makes your nails look a lot healthier and cleaner. I actually used my mums nails for these pictures to show you a proper before and after. As I buff my nails fairly frequently (and have also to been thoroughly testing out this gadget before agreeing to review it) you don’t see as much of a difference on my nails as they are already in pretty good condition! My mums nails however, were in need of a little TLC and I think you’ll agree the difference it makes in just 5 minutes is really noticeable! She loved it anyway, and that’s saying something from a total non-believer when it comes to nail care!
Overall I’ve been so impressed with this little gadget, and definitely think it’s worth the £14.99 price tag. You can pick it up from the JML website (here) and selected Boots stores.
Do you guys use a nail buffer at the moment? What do you think of electrical ones?!
