When I opened the box from Amazon I found a reusable plastic pouch with a sliding closure inside. I opened that bag up and found:
1. The nail kit
2. The nail clippers
3. The toe spacers
Arbitrary as it may seem, my favorite part about the clippers is that they have a smiley face design cut into the metal. So cheery!
The toe spacers are not the foamy kind you normally think of for using when painting your nails. They are the type that go fully around each toe, and actually give your toe muscles a nice stretch. Our feet get crammed into weird shapes all day in our shoes, especially if the shoes have maybe a narrow or pointy shape, or if you have one toe that is a little extra long and it gets smashed every day... So it's good to put spacers like these on while you're relaxing to give your feet a good stretch and some relief, help them to get to where they should be more naturally.
Finally,the HealthyWiser nail care tool. The packaging was plastic, but easy to open! Not the kind that you have to use scissors and then you get cut on the thick plastic. No, I actually pulled it open with my bare hands. (Im strong like that.. just kidding..) So the tool... It has a cap at the bottom for inserting and removing batteries. It's nice that the batteries actually came with this item! There are three inserts for the tool, and make sure they are packaged in the correct order in your package.
Step One: Use the dark blue, coarse grit to file the edge of your nails
Step Two: Use the light blue insert to buff the surface of your nail, the entire flat part of your nail
Step Three: Use the white insert to shine up the entire surface of your nail!
There are products out there that are a multi-sided tool, this is basically the same only it adds power to that. So you can just hold it to your nail and move a little bit, instead of moving vigorously with the other tools.
As with any new tool, there is a learning curve to getting the most out of it. With this one, I think the vibration is so strong that you need to learn the right amount of pressure to use. If you apply too much pressure, it will stop moving. So you need to learn how to use it and in that way and precision is a little challenging due to the strong vibration. I wish the other attachments could be stored somehow in the body of this tool rather than being loose. I know they gave you a big plastic bag you could store it in, but it would be even more convenient if it was built in. Like those pencils that have a bunch of tips inside and when one goes flat you shove it up the bottom of the pencil and a new tip comes out... Okay, so not exactly like that, but just the idea of being stored within would be great!
I've never tried another product similar to this that I can compare this to, but overall I like it. A couple areas I mentioned above that I suggest for improvement or tips for use, but at the end of the day, it definitely has the ability to perform its task, shaping and shining your nails which is great if you're not that into nail polish, but you still want to have a nice and healthy shine.
I received this kit for free to test and review and opinions/ experience using it are my own!
