=?> :jiggy: I am so excited about this product that im writing about today. its a manicure centre by oriflame yeeeeyyy it’s a super unique product that I was lusting about since six months.this mostly comes out on offer in the flyers that oriflame offers and I have ordered this thrice only to be disappointed ☹ the this may I found a consultant at my parents place in himachal and asked her whether this was available.she asked some other consultant and guess what she had this in stock just lying at her home☺ I was elated . Oriflame used to offer this at 1290 I believe but in the flyers it sells around 400 – 500 rs.
What the product is : This centre is a one in all place for your manicure that has compartments to hold long nail files, nailpaints, a box to contain cotton buds, cotton wool etc etc. this is made in three parts, the side one to mainly hold paints, the back compartments to hold longer stuff like cuticle pushers may be, nail buffers etc.The centre of the centre has a rectangular box with storage and a lid to keep smaller items may be a nail brush etc. The lid has groves built in for placing fingers at the time of apliction of polish ,or say while doing intricate nail art or pushing and trimming cuticles back. then the third section to the left has bigger sections to hold the bottles as well. Basically you may have seen many holders for nail paints, lipsticks etc, this one is all about nail related items for manicure.
The quality :
The quality of this manicure centre is superb so to say and it is made in Taiwan. It is shiny thick durable plastic that I may have dropped a couple of times but haven’t seen any cracks so far. The compartments are varied in size so that it can incorporate various shapes of bottles and filers. The best Part about this is the lid of the box in the centre which has finger shaped grooves on which to rest fingers while application of polish .I always used to have trouble resting my fingers on the leg, table, clothes, bedsheet, and often I have dropped nail paints drops on sheets and clothes. 🙁 I always wanted something stiff n stable for the purpose as I tend to get very impatient while applying polishes an if it is messy I just remove the whole thing out and start fresh with some other color:) this has made life easier for me as I can access all my files and buffers and brushes form this very box and also use the compartments to place a bottle of polish im using.
The catch: The only problem and a major one is that I have way too many nail polishes like may be a 60 or so and such a small centre cant hold may be more than ten. Also, its more convenient to hold oriflame nail expert bottles only because of their slim shape. The oriflame regular polishes which say quick dry are too round to fit into these. 🙁 Also, avon simply pretty ones settle very well in this but the latest rectangular neons and speed dry don’t really fit well.the colorbar ones are too square too fit into it. I don’t really know which ones to keep in these and which ones to avoid,I don’t wanna be partial to any brand (heheh)and not to forget maybellines…I wish this manicure centre was triple its size to accommodate all my nail polishes 😉
The other problem is that this is not permanent with oriflame anymore.Tt comes out only with offers sometimes. If you do wish to get some containers like these try shopper’s stop as I recently saw some lipstick holders and dual sided mirrors and nail paint holders there which retail for around 400 to 900rs. But none of these had compartments like this one!
