Although the name of this product makes it sound like some kind of miracle pill that you swallow to give you beautifully manicured nails, it is actually a fizzy blue tablet that dissolves in water to make a good pre-manicure soak for nails. Each tablet is relatively large and thick, and is scored down the middle to enable it to be easily broken in half. The directions state you should dissolve one half in water to soak one hand, then dissolve the second half for soaking the other hand. However, if Iím feeling lazy or short on time, the whole tablet can be dissolved quite easily to soak both hands at once. Also, when I have been running low on manicure pills, I have sometimes used only half a pill to soak both hands, which doesnít seem to make a huge difference to the results you get with the product. When you first drop the pill into a bowl of water, it fizzes for a few seconds before it dissolves to make the water turn a bright shade of blue. Donít be put off by this though, the colour does not transfer onto hands or nails, and if anything, makes nails brighter and whiter. The soak smells good too, with a lovely herbal scent that also helps to relax you whilst you are waiting the stated five minutes. I like to soak my hands before using cuticle remover, and this pill makes cuticles nice and soft to help with pushing them back. It also makes nails feel very clean and does not leave any residue, so it is suitable for use before using nail polish. The pills come in a pack of six, and are wrapped in foil, so each one can be removed separately without letting the air get to the remaining pills (preventing them from becoming soft and crumbly). The foil pack is contained in a slim cardboard sleeve with the instructions of use printed clearly on the back. This is a good product and one of my staple manicure tools, so I will be repurchasing.
