The folks at Lipton Publicity recently sent me a courtesy sample of the Emjoi Micro-Nail to test and feature on the blog. This past summer, I reviewed the Emjoi Micro-Pedi and adored it. At the time I agreed to try the Micro-Nail, I couldn't possibly imagine I'd like it nearly as much as the Micro-Pedi. Then, I tried it...
This woman indulges in a home mani weekly--with several nail polish changes taking place throughout the week. I always thought my nails looked pretty good once they'd been polished. Testing this product, though, made me realize my nails should look good even without polish. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case. The truth is my bare fingernails were discolored, ridged, dull and even cracked in places (Yes, the photo above was taken before I used the Emjoi Micro-Nail).
The Micro-Nail was super-easy to assemble and use. After cutting my nails and washing/drying my hands, I used one of the two Micro-Smooth Rollers (gray) to address my nails' imperfections.
Without applying pressure, I let the roller glide over each nail for a few seconds. The photo below was taken immediately afterwards...
Next I switched out the gray roller for one of the two Micro-Shine Rollers (white). Thereafter, I repeated the process...
The photo directly above displays my nails immediately after using the Emjoi Micro-Nail. Post use, my nails were noticeably smoother, shinier and even less discolored. They felt great to the touch, too (gone was the roughness!).
MY ASSESSMENT: My nails look MUCH better both with and without polish following my very first use of the Emjoi Micro-Nail. What's truly fascinating is that the polish seemed to glide on more smoothly and evenly after using the Micro-Nail. Amazingly, they even felt smoother and still looked shiny a couple of days later when I removed the old polish.
I first tried out my Emjoi Micro-Nail last week. Since then, I've used it three times (every time I've changed polish colors). Given that it appears to be improving the condition of my nails each time I use it, it's now going to be a permanent part of my nail care regimen.
The Emjoi Micro-Nail is sold at the Emjoi website and through QVC (.com). In my opinion, it would make the perfect gift for you or someone you know (man or woman!).
Joy & hugs, T.
