“ Brand: Asda / Skin type: dry skin and for all types / Type: Emery Boards „
For my job I work as a care assistant and as such my nails must be smooth as a tiny little bit of contact between my nails and a resident can have their frail skin tearing very easily. At home I use a proper long life nail file but I like to carry around emery boards in my bag and car for when my nails chip or break. I picked the last packet of emery boards up from Asda, I never actually run emery boards out as I always lose them so I am not going to spend a lot of money on them. The Asda Smartprice emery boards cost 46p for a packet containing 12 boards which is fantastic value. The emery boards are packaged in a see through plastic wrapper which simply has the Asda Smartprice logo on it, the packet is very easy to open and is suitable for keeping the boards in which are not in use. The boards are basically a lolly stick shape and have a coating of rough material on either side very like fine sandpaper. The emery boards are coloured fawn and nearly red but the colour doesn't make any difference to how good they are so doesn't really matter. The emery boards are great and they file down my little snags on my nails easily and when I have snapped a nail they smooth the edges off nicely without too much effort. I find each file can be used a couple of times before the rough material smoothes out and they need to go in the bin so they really are fantastic value. These little sticks are great value and do the job just as well as more expensive branded ones so these score 5 stars out of 5 with me.
