Just over a year after the Scholl Electronic Foot File (review here), there’s now a new toy on shelves – the Scholl Electronic Nail File, R489.
Before I received my review unit I saw the ads on TV in Australia and I was intrigued to put it mildly. I couldn’t grasp how this gadget was not going to file my nails and cuticles to shreds, and buff them to within an inch of their lives.
Turns out my worries were unfounded as the Scholl Electronic Nail File is super gentle – so much so that buffing requires a little more patience than I had imagined. The file comes with three interchangeable heads – one for shaping and two for buffing. They’re numbered so there’s no chance of getting things wrong, so you simply file and shape with head number one and buff and shine with numbers two and three.
I’ve always been super lazy with nail buffing so I love that I can just glide the heads over my nail surface without having to put in any actual effort. I find the ritual pretty calming, and my only criticism would be that I would have liked an additional buffing head that’s a little coarser than number two, but not as coarse as the filing head (number one). I’ve partially sorted this problem out by dulling a number one head reasonably well in a marathon nail filing session, so it might be worth hanging onto your used ones too.
Before and after shots below. They’re not perfect, but I did them as accurately as I could in changing light.
If you’d like to try one of these gadgets for yourself, you’ve come to the right place. There’s a Scholl Electronic Nail File Hamper up for grabs – we’re talking a file, a set of replacement heads, cuticle oil, moisture cream, serum and a R600 ALDO voucher which adds up to a value of R1700.
