Booking weekly manicures at a beauty salon sounds like a great idea, but let’s get real – no one has the time for that! I don't have the patience to file my nails with an emery board and clipping the nail causes it to split, so I've always had to embrace short nails. Which is why I was beyond excited when the Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System landed on my desk.
The Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System is one device that electronically files, buffs and polishes the nails – why has no one thought of this sooner?
The device is unique to the at-home market; an electronic beauty tool which comes with three detachable nail care heads to:
- File: Used to shorten your nails or create a desired nail shape.
- Buff: Used to even out irregularities and create a smooth surface on the nail bed.
- Polish: Used to create a natural shine on the nail bed.
The three step routine of the Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System works together to create a flawless base for your nail colour or allows you to embrace the natural nail trend. The heads can be easily fitted onto the device and operated at two speeds to evenly file, buff and polish your nails into a manicure or pedicure that you’ll want to flaunt this summer.
However, using the device does require patience and is not a speedy process. While this device is more convenient than booking an appointment at your beautician, taking your time and using the lowest speed will provide the best results.
The device (with one set of heads) retails for $59.99 while the refill heads are available for $19.99 a set. The only negative comment I have about this device is the cost of the refills and how often they need to be replaced. I have been using the nail care system frequently for the past two months and I have had to replace the heads twice. If you want to use the device frequently, I would recommend having a set of heads for your manicure and a separate set to use for your pedicure.
The Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System is an essential for your at-home beauty routine to ensure you boast a flawless pedicure and manicure all summer long!
The Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System is now available in all good pharmacies and supermarkets.
