Near to where I work in London, there is a street of high end beauty shops. Their selling tactic is controversial – give you a sample as you’re walking past and then practically drag you into the shop and sell you an overpriced product that you don’t really need…and that’s how I became the (now proud) owner of a Sakare nail kit.
To be fair, although he was a good salesman, I would never have bought the kit if I didn’t honestly like it. The results are just too good to ignore!
The main focus of the kit is the nail buffer. Now let me set one thing straight, this is no normal nail buffer! It has different sides to prep the surface and buff away any ridges and then the white side gives it shine. It’s difficult for me to actually put into words how good this leaves your nails – you’re left with nails that look either coated with clear nail varnish or acrylic nails. SO shiny, SO smooth and just amazing! The pictures below definitely don’t do it justice!
Apparently, the reason the white side on the buffer gets your nails so shiny, is because it pulls out the natural oils in your nails – now, I’m not quite sure how much of this I believe, but I just cannot argue with the results!
In the nail kit you also get a standard nail file to shape your nails, cuticle oil to lock in the moisture and keep your cuticles healthy, and hand and body lotion to moisture your hands after!
The kit retails for £45 online, however I purchased it for £30! I honestly think that is such a bargain considering how good it leaves your nails looking! The salesman also chucked me in a ‘lifetime’ offer – if I take my receipt back with my buffer, they will give me new strips for it for free, whenever I want!
After using the nail kit for a few weeks, I can honestly say it has improved my nails so much. Not only do you get the instant results of shine and being smooth, but over time I’ve found my nail are much stronger. They don’t break as easily and I’m pretty sure the tips of my nails have got whiter, too!
