You might remember Tom Pellereau. He won The Apprentice last year and the prize was going into business with Lord Sugar. I once had a dream about snogging Lord Sugar. That’s a bit weird isn’t it? It’s ok, I know it’s weird. It was one of those dreams that I couldn’t shake for days! Anyway, I digress.
Lets talk about the Stylfile. There are three in the range. The S-File, the S-Buffer and the Emergency File which is a combination of the file and buffer for on the go. I have both the S-File and the S-Buffer and have been having a play for a few weeks now. Before I tell you how I got on, lets take a look at what makes them different.
Okay starting with the S-file. It’s just not working for me, I think I’m far too set in my ways. I’ve tried and tried and it just feels clumsy in my hands and I can’t get the hang of it. The file itself is great, not too harsh and just fine, for me, the S-shape did’t work. lets talk about the S-Buffer though, that’s a whole other story. Love it! I’m not sure why its so different, but I think because you use the flat of the buffer on the flat of your nail it just works, ergonomically it’s comfortable and natural, it also produces a fab high shine.
Until very recently my nails were in awful condition and I often wore them naked except for buffing so this got a thorough testing. Very impressed! Now I’ve got acrylics on and I can get a great shine on those too.
So for me a mixed review, no for the file and yes yes yes for the buffer. There’s nothing wrong with the file, I just couldn’t really get to grips with it. Literally whereas the buffer feels completely natural in the hand and on the nail.
You can’t complain about the prices of these either. The S-File is £4.49 and the S-Buffer is £4.99 with the Emergency File retailing for £4.49. I particularly recommend the Buffer!
As for availability, the Stylfiles are available now in selected Sainsbury’s, Sally Beauty and Amazon and will be coming soon to Boots, Lloyds Pharmacy and local Pharmacies.
