Advantages: Cheap, nail dryer, a few good accessories
Disadvantages: Dryer a little weak, set a bit flimsy, doesn't do anything a buffer / file wouldn't take care of
As someone who regularly looks after my nails, I often receive nail related products for Christmas and birthday presents. The latest was a manicure set from Champneys. Without wanting to sound ungrateful (!), I often find that products I receive are often gimmicky, and I would much prefer a decent bottle of nail varnish, so I inwardly groaned upon receipt of this compact manicure set!
I decided to give it a try, I had nothing to lose, however I didn't hold out much hope, that it would be any more effective than the current system of nail buffing, filing, etc that I was using beforehand.
One of the main benefits of this compact is the built in nail dryer. I try to paint my nails when I know I have time to let them dry naturally, and I can sit and do nothing. There is the odd occasion however when I am in a rush, and my nail varnish is chipped and needs sorting. This is when I have found the benefit of having the nail dryer. I have used them in the past, and to be honest haven't had great experiences with them (the previous one that was bought also as a present for me, involved me keeping my hand pressed on a plate to work the fan!). The fan isn't particularly strong and only gently fans the nails, but it is better than nothing.
The accessories that come with the set include: rough and fine shaping disk, skin remover, polishing disk, thick and thin sharp point, ball head point, fine grain cone, brush, automatic cuticle lifter and hoof stick. Instructions included tell you what each of the tools are for, however I only use a few of them. The set is also for use on feet, I probably get more use out of it for this than I do nails.
The manicure / pedicure set comes in a handy compact with all the tools kept inside. It stores easily, and doesn't take up much room. It isn't the best quality though and doesn't feel particularly durable. For a cheap compact set, I guess its okay, I just would have expected better quality from Champneys.
Comes with a manufacturers 2 year guarantee.
It is currently available at thehut.co.uk for £11.99 with a saving of £28.
