Stylfile S-File & S-Buffer

I've seen snippets of The Apprentice, I'm aware of the concept and think it's a great inspiration but I have to admit, I've never really sat down to watch it (I guess you can say I'm more into gypsy weddings or babies being born every minute!). However, when I was told that this years winner was the inventor of a unique nail file I was quite intrigued. 

Tom Pellereau, the creator of the Stylfile collection, explains how one day he was watching his sister file her nails and he instantly came up with the idea of a curved file. The S-file is designed to follow the natural shape of the nail, making it much more easy to control and use. One side has a surface to shape the nail, and the other has a softer surface to smooth over them and with a specially selected abrasive finish, the S-file is supposed to last for 12 months.

The second product in the range is the 4-step S-buffer. I love the glossy shine a buffer creates on the nail almost giving the impression you're wearing a clear coat of polish. This is a similar design to the file in the way that it's shape follows the natural nail bed curve, much easier to work with than the regular buffing blocks which usually leave me with hand cramp! 

Finally, there is the Emergency file, a miniature version of the S-file and the S-buffer put together. It comes protected in a pink spiral casing, to ensure it doesn't get damaged but also making sure it doesn't scratch anything else. It's attached onto a keyring so great to have for on the go and a general handbag necessity!

Result - healthy, shiny, shaped, natural nails!

I think these are great ideas, so much more practical and they have definitely become a part of my nail care routine, out go the regular straight files and hand-crippling buffing blocks! The only downside I would say is that they are only available to buy in Sainsbury's supermarkets. I hope in the near future you will be able to buy them online or more accessibly in Boots or Superdrug stores. The S-file is priced at £4.49, the S-buffer at £4.99 and the Emergency file at £4.49 and can be viewed online HERE
