SALON QUALITY MANICURE AT HOME WITH SCHOLL COMPACT MANI SET




By now we all know I'm not the person to go to when it comes to complicated and fancy nail-related stuff. It will always be a mystery to me how girls manage to have intricate and detailed designs on such a small canvas, I find it to be just brilliant. I'm not going to deny though, no matter how many times I claim to be a lazy girl when it comes to manicures, I do like to keep my hands looking presentable - at least most of the time! 

When I was asked to review this Scholl Manicure Set* and the package arrived I was terrified to say the least. There were lots of little bits to play with and being an inexperienced gal with professional looking tools I had to kind of sit down and figure out how to work it. I'm almost embarrassed to admit how easy it is and how effortless the whole process was. I basically panicked for no reason. 

What's the deal? You get nine attachment tools that you have to stick to the main guy - the manicure pen. The pen needs to get charged every 9 weeks (in my experience, could be less for others depending on how often you use it; personally I use this once a week). 


Those nine different attachments are:
  1. Sapphire shaping disc to gently shape and file nails
  2. Fine grained sapphire disc to file thicker nails and shape them perfectly
  3. Course grained sapphire disc to shorten thicker toe nails
  4. Sapphire cone to remove dry skin or calluses from the soles of the feet and heels
  5. Felt polishing cone to smooth and buff nails for a high shine finish
  6. Flame stone to help remove difficult edges and ingrowing nails
  7. Rounded stone to gently remove corns and calluses with soft repeated touches
  8. Cylindrical stone to smooth the nail surface and remove dead skin around the nails - ideal for the regular surface of toe nails
  9. Polishing cone to smooth and polish the edge of the nail after filing as well as the nail surface.
It is recommended to use the flame stone and the rounded stone on the lower settings. Do not worry - all the instructions are on the clear guide you get inside in a variety of languages, this is not me being the know-it-all. My mum "borrowed" the guide in italian the other day and tried this for the first time. It then disappeared somehow, probably to become her permanent possession. We'll see about that...

My final thoughts: I have taken this amazing little travel-friendly package with me on holiday and I showed it to everyone - my girlfriends, family, even a random girl I talked to in Boots who ended up following my blog (hey Sarah! - if you're reading). I think it's great quality at a great price (£34.90) and definitely something every gal should have in her pamper routine on a sunday before kicking off the week! 


Have you ever tried this set before? What do you use for your manicure routine?

XOXO

  3. This looks great and the price is very reasonable too. I always get acrylics done at the nail salon and dispite owning way too many nail polishes and files, I never used them so something like this would be of no use to me! x

  5. This sounds great, I wouldn't have a manicure because I wouldn't want someone else touching my nails but I quite like the idea of doing it myself.x

  10. I didn't even know such a thing existed! This is perfect for a lazy person like me. I always do my own nails but sometimes I get really lazy and walk around with ugly feet and hands. It's cringe worthy!
    Will definitely be giving this a look online after reading this. :)
