According to the fashion crowd, the latest trend on the street is bare nails. Slightly unfortunate for me as my nail polish collection is looking pretty strong at the moment, but if the likes of Stella McCartney and Tom Ford are fans then who can argue?
To aid the bare nail process, a new product called MICRO Nail* has been launched exclusively to Boots to buff and shine your nails into perfection so you can rock the look with pride. The system is battery powered with two rollers - one for buffing (grey) and one for shining (white). The rollers which rotate up to 1800 times per minute leave your nails salon smooth in minutes and very much take the hard work out of buffing.
The buffing roller helps to eliminate any ridges or stains on the nail, whilst the shine roller works instantly to leave nails with a beautiful natural shine, which in my opinion gives the illusion of a glossy top coat. The system is super light and easy to use, I just move the roller around the base of the nail and then quickly smooth it over the tips - it feels totally non abrasive and gentle on the skin. This acts as a base coat in a manicure so for those not wanting to bare their nails, it helps nail polish to glide on effortlessly.
I really like this product- it's like a mini manicure at home, helping to improve the look of your nails with only a minute or two of work. Would I recommend you run out and buy it? That really depends. If you're looking for something to cut down your need for manicures, this would be a great part-time replacement. If you're not in the market for it, you could probably survive without it. This costs £39.99 and comes with spare rollers and batteries so whilst it's not the cheapest system in the world, it's fairly good value for money.
