Nail Must Have: Revlon Crazy Shine Nail Buffer

Sometimes I like to wear my nails bare with nothing but a high gloss shine on them. When I’m in that kind of mood, I turn to my favorite kind of nail product… the nail buffer. Most of them have at least 3 steps, the usual file, buff and polish routine but that can be hard on your nails. My favorite nail buffer of the moment is Revlon’s Crazy Shine. It does just that, gives my nails crazy, glossy shine as if I had a coat of clear polish on.

One of the things I like about this nail buffer is the shape, it makes a bit easier to get to the sides of the nail. With the OPI square buffer I used before this one, the little gap between the product surface and the little bit of square edge wouldn’t get in close enough so I like that don’t have that problem with Revlon’s. The other side of the product is also much gentler than 4-way nail buffers, there’s no harsh grit that files off half your nail bed here. It just smooths things out a bit in preparation for the shine frenzy that is about to begin. Best of all, it does its job for about $3, much cheaper than the OPI nail buffer I was using and with the same results. I think I have a new favorite buffer.

On a side note, the great Product Girl break of 2011 has come to an end. The week I decided to take a break was a pretty difficult one for me. I received some bad news on a project I was hoping I would be a part of that really affected me and it caused me to question what I was doing. I took the news pretty hard but thankfully I had some friends who were there for me with some good advice to help me see things in a new light and that has really helped.

During this last week, I found myself wanting to share things with all of you. I kept it off the blog but I didn’t keep it off Twitter. That helped me realize that I can’t stay away and that this is indeed what I need to keep doing because I love it so much. I really can’t imagine myself not wanting to know what is the latest and greatest in beauty and not wanting to talk about it with someone. Some of the same frustrations are still there but I’m going to try and just let it roll of my back and focus on what I love.

With that in mind, I want to hear from you! If you have any feedback for me on what you would like to see from Product Girl, I would love to know.

  1. I’m so glad you’re back! I swear I almost cried (no joke), then I thought it must be an early April Fool’s joke. You’re one of the best blogs out there and I read every chance I get. I love your content, your honest assessments and I love hearing what all three of you have to say. I think the key to any great blog is consistency and you are one of the few that has that. I can always look forward to a post from you guys! I wouldn’t change a thing about the site, I’ve read every single post and will continue to do so. Thanks so much for your hard work and dedication.

  2. So glad you are back! Glad you were able to work through a tough time!! Can’t wait to get this nail buffer!

  3. I’m a new reader and I was so sad that you may not be coming back! I’m so happy you’ve returned!! I really want to try this buffer, the ones I’m getting from the beauty supply store are just so-so. Everyone seems to really be liking the Revlon buffer!

  4. I have never really commented before but I wanted you to know that I have read your blog for several years now. I was so sad to read your post earlier in the week and realize that Im one of those silent readers that you dont even know appreciate your thoughts and beauty news every week. I’m glad that you were able to sort through the disappointment, but things always change and the opportunity that wasnt this week might come with better results the next time around- so dont take it to heart. I started a new diet plan recently too and have lost about 28 pounds thus far so i’m rooting for you knowing how hard it is to change habits, especially when everyone around you continues to keep their old habits. I look forward to your updates and cant wait for you to post a full-body pic of your skinny hotness. Keep your chin up- there’s lots of us out here you might never talk to rooting for you :)
