Ready in a Rush for Valentine’s Date Night

While I love getting dressed up for date nights with hubby – it never seems like I have enough time to get properly glammed up. I’m always looking for shortcuts to help me get ready faster – from curling my hair the night before (and sleeping with it in a bun) to streamlining my makeup routine down to the essentials and choosing a classic outfit that works for both day and night.

Prepping my nails is yet another time-consuming beauty ritual. While I want my nails to look groomed and tidy, the whole manicure process can take quite a lot of time. From cleaning up my cuticles, to filing my nails, applying nail polish, and waiting for my polish to dry – I need to block out at least an hour. One shortcut I do, is to paint my nails right before I go to bed – that way at least I can skip out on the drying time and not worrying about smudging the polish on my nails. This doesn’t always work out for me though – if I’m exhausted at bedtime, the last thing I want to do is carefully paint my nails!

That’s why I was excited to try out the Amopé™ Pedi Perfect ™ Electronic Nail Care System. It saves time in two ways – firstly – it grooms your nails quickly, and secondly – it shines your nails and allows you to embrace your natural nails and skip the polish!

This little tool is an electronic nail file with three interchangeable heads.

  • Step 1 / FILE – the first head files your nail to your desired look. I was impressed by how easy it was to file – no back and forth motion required, just press it against your nail and it quickly shapes it. And unlike manual filing, you don’t have to worry about rough edges, the sides of my nails felt SO smooth!
  • Step 2 / BUFF – buffing your nails help smooth away ridges in your nails. Carefully apply this head to the surface of your nail.
  • Step 3 / SHINE – this is the step that allows you to skip nail polish, as this head will polish your nail surface and bring out a natural shine – without the need for clear nail polish!

I was most impressed with the FILING head – I usually find filing my nails to be a tedious process – but I loved how this shaped and smoothed my nails in no time!

    Ha! Yes, getting ready for date night always ends up being a little extra time consuming and a little extra stressful! I always want to do a few extra things (like false eyelashes) that end up taking a little longer than I expected. Glad you found a good nail grooming option and I love your glam date night outfit with the cape!Gina || On the Daily Express

      Gina – I know you'd understand me LOL…False eyelashes are so hit and miss for me – I need to devote a LOT of extra time for that ha ha! Curling hair takes so long too!

    Yes! I struggle these days because I like to make certain that we have enough time and proper lighting to take blog pictures ( which really only takes about 10 min ) but it's hard to plan around. I like taking pics in the areas that I'm familiar with, and sometimes we have to take pictures the day before we actually go out. But overall, I've got my routine down. I choose what to wear that week so I don't have to try things on. I also decide my makeup look days in advance. I'm weird!

      It's not weird – all that planning is great! That way you make the best use of the time you have. We've gotten really quick about taking photos (because it's freezing out LOL!) but it's hard to fit a time in to take them, especially when it gets dark so early here.
