I was provided the Emjoi Micro-Nail to review. As always, I am simply sharing my thoughts and opinions about my experience.
Emjoi Micro-Nail Review
These days I tend to do my manicures more at home than in the salon because I rarely have the time to spend just sitting there, and I really like having the option to change up my nail looks on a whim, versus feeling like I need to keep the same look until my polish begins to chip. So this weekend as I was preparing to do my weekly manicure, I added a new step to the process with the Micro-Nail. It’s a handy dandy little gadget that smooths and buffs nails to a pretty shine in far less time than traditional nail buffers.
The Micro-Nail comes with two micro-smooth rollers for smoothing out nail ridges, two micro-shine rollers for smoothing and shining nails, and a little bag to store them in when you aren’t using the unit.
Here are my nails before using the Micro-Nail. They are definitely on the dull side and I have always struggled with minor ridges. I recently read the ridges become more prominent with aging – Nice. Guess it’s great I now have something to combat them with in far less time!
The process itself is very simple. Use the white rollers to smooth your nail, for only a couple of seconds with each one. It took me a nail or two to get the hang of it, but then I was off and going and had each hand completed in no time flat. Once I was finished smoothing out each nail, I switched to the grey rollers and started the shining process, which was exactly the same as the previous step.
Sooo shiny! My nails looked just like I had applied a clear protective top coat when I was finished and they felt great. When I applied polish later it went on evenly, although, my nails looked so pretty I was tempted to just go without. Overall, I was thrilled with the results, liked how easy it was to use, thought the unit was sturdy, and enjoyed how comfortable it felt in my hands.
