salon-worthy nails, Emjoi Micro-Nail Buff and Shine Manicure Kit, Review, tips to stronger nails

Exclusively available at QVC ($49.95, kit + 8 rollers or $43, kit + 4 rollers), Emjoi Micro-Nail Buff and Shine Manicure Kit is the ideal gift to someone who’s either into nail stuff or who seems to have everything. Because let’s face it, this is not the type of gift you often see anywhere else. In a nutshell, this gadget rotates 360 degrees to smoothen ridges and adds glossy-shine to nails.

Operating this gadget only requires one thing: common sense. But seriously, just some quick reading. Put the batteries in, switch up to start, switch down to turn off, use gray roller to buff, replace with white to shine. Since it’s battery-operated, you can take it anywhere and probably engage in a new hobby, buff and polish while killing time, haha!

Photos speak a thousand words. Except for trimming my nails in the after-photo, you can see my nail beds looking shiny and more presentable, and that’s without topcoat or photo alteration! Interestingly, the shine lingered for three days, considering that I wash and sanitize my hands heavily (I deal with patients that’s why). I am convinced and impressed, I think even my nail-art loving niece would love to have this as holiday present!

Have you tried something similar?

    I think Emjoi makes some terrific gadgets. A million years ago, my dad gave me a similar device and it definitely worked. I could use the Emjoi Mic ro Nail even more now

    How funny, I just won this exact product and was thinking about giving it away because I didn't think it'd be useful to me, but it made your nails look SO much more healthy.. so I think I need to open it up and try it!

    I thought about this because it's just terrific but I don't do my own nails.

    I got an Emjoi manicure kit as a GWP from LookFantastic last Christmas but haven't gone near it because the attachments looked scary. This version looks less scarier but I think I'll hunt mine out and give it a (nervous and wary) try.

    I love a freshly buffed nail as much as I love a freshly painted one, and this looks like the easiest way to get there. Need it!

    I seriously need this! My nails are so sad right now.
