Looking Buff…

2 Minute Manicure with MICRO Nail

I always wear nail polish.  I change my colour three times a week and have never been seen without it.  Surprising to most, I very rarely have a professional manicure unless it’s a birthday, or a treat, as I consider it a necessity over a luxury, and use the money saved towards buying a new nail colour.

I do think it would be nice to go polishless sometimes, as au naturel lets your nails breathe, but the truth is, I would feel naked without it. However, now that I have discovered MICRO Nail by Emjoi I’m consider wearing clean natural nails for the rest of my life!

Makers of the award winning MICRO Pedi (which I also use) have launched a new revolutionary nail care product which I think is a game changer in home manicures.  Unlike any other product in the nail care market, the device’s pioneering micro mineral technology guarantees fast, salon smooth and hassle-free results in an instant all from the comfort of your own home.

It basically does all the hard work for you so no more arm ache, or hours spent buffing and polishing, this handy little electronic device gives you beautiful and natural shiny nails in seconds.

It’s super easy to use as it comes with the batteries required which go into the bottom, as well as the rollers which can be easily added and removed.  The grey roller ‘MICRO Smooth’ is designed to buff away ridges, reduce staining and help improve the appearance of dryness.  The white roller ‘MICRO Shine’ works in seconds to leave nails with a beautiful, natural shine. 
There is a separate pouch for the rollers, and the fuss free, light packaging is so convenient to keep in the handbag, or on your desk, or dresser for any last minute touch (buff) ups. 

When I first used Micro Nail I was afraid.  The rollers spin faster than I had expected (Rotating at 360 degrees up to 1800 times per minute) and they are really powerful.  Fear not, the sound and fast action is deceiving because it is actually really gentle on the nails, as well as on the skin around the cuticles.  Avoid staying in one area too long.  The most effective way of using the product is by moving fast (2 seconds per nail) and forming a ‘U’ shape over the nail bed.
The results are fast and amazingly effective.  I couldn’t believe how shiny my nails were, they looked like they had clear nail polish on them, it was unbelievable.  It definitely improved the appearance of my natural nails, and they looked smooth and healthy.  After a few months use, I would feel confident and comfortable to go out with natural nails.  For now, I will continue to wear polish because this product has really helped it glide on easier, as well as helping it to last longer as it acts like a primer.
(I know my natural nails look gross before and after, but you can see that 
the after nails look smoother and in slightly better condition)
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who loves painting their own nails at home, or loves to have shiny natural nails.  It really is a fast and effective way of keeping nails healthy, and looking great.
Unfortunately, I over did the buffing (with the grey roller) as I was making a video for my instagram page.  It left me with raw, over buffed, painful, and sensitive nails.  It was so painful, I had to dip my nails into cold water before going to bed.  Don’t let this stop you from purchasing it.  MICRO Nail is an amazing product, just don’t get over excited and wear your nails down like I did condition nails with a good moisturiser or nail oil after use.
Enjoy… and btw… 3 weeks later, they’re still shiny!
