Living in a tiny apartment, I have to admit the nail steamer takes up some counter space, which is a con for me, but it’s not cumbersome and I found an easily-accessible home for it (and the acetone) in my hallway closet, right beside my actual steamer. Of course, a Stream Pro is a frontend investment. However, I see it as a saving over time. Now I don’t need to book a salon appointment just to have my gels removed, thus breaking the cycle of dependency. Plus, I feel empowered to improve my at-home manicure skills in general.
