Doe anyone use the Valentino Beauty Pure???
#1
I am in search of a new Dust Collection System. I currently use the Sunflower and it's just not cutting the dust anymore. Was wondering if anyone has the Valentino Beauty Pure and how you like it. I see about 10-12 clients per day and need something that really works. Or if you have any other suggestions.

I was asking my self the same question? ah!.

I have the Luraco partigon I like it a lot, but my hand wrist hurts after a while :roll:

I read somewhere that somebody sold her valentino because she said her back and neck hurts after a while due to the position?, so it will be awesome if somebody share some honest experience.

Hubby is thinking in building me something with a commercial vacuum system, I love to do nails but boy I hate the dust. :lol:

I have one. I don't use it. After months of trouble shooting and working different ways to get the position issue to work, i stopped using it for several reasons: It is noisy. My client and I can't talk over it when it is running. It is restrictive in the way the client's hand is positioned. It works fine for their right hand, but the left hand is awkward (I am right handed). And finally, it is definately too high for me to work with comfortably. I am somewhat short, plus I wear bifocals. The Valentino puts the work focus too close for my eyes to focus properly, making me lean my head back to focus. That opened up a whole new can of issues.

I think the Valentino is an awesome product in theory. However, until I can either fabricate a table top to accomodate the machine flush with my work surface, or they make it shorter, I won't be able to incorporate it into my work space. And this is a real shame. I spent a LOT of money on this machine for it to be collecting dust in my back room. It was a sacrifice to purchase the unit. I am sorry I didn't wait till more people weighed in on it before I purchased.

Final synopsis: I am disappointed. I love the power of the vacuum it creates. But it is not practical for my use. Think carefully before you invest. Their return policy is not very practical...24 hours.

Thank so much for the input!!! I don't think I will invest. I'm going to look into a desk mounted, the one that vents through the table,,,,it's going to cost more, but it wll be worth it in end!

ParkNails....don't get me wrong, my sunflower works, but it really only works well on one side. So when I switch to the clients other hand, i'm having to pull it way over to get under the sunflower. (this is due to my nail station being longer than average) It's just kind of bulky if I mount it on the side of the station and too far away if I mount it on the end. And it seems the filter really needs to be cleaned about every 3 clients to get the maximum suction power (depending on how much filing I do). I am seriously considering the Medicool unit. Good Luck in your search also!!!

I had the sunflower which left me covered in dust & the partigone which was bulky & the piece that sit on my station never was in 'the right place', I've tried those little table top vents which are worthless so I bought the Valentino which has worked better than anything, even my clients comment on how well it works, I also think it works better on one hand than the other & I wish the vent was a little longer because when I hand file my hand blocks it, I went to Ikea & bought a table top desk, cut a hole in it, secured a basket underneath & put the Valentino in it & now it's much much better, only thing is I had to buy more carts to store my stuff since it was a regular table top desk Smile

I love my Valentino. It's only about 4 or 5 inches tall. I use a small cushion to keep the clients arms level and comfortable.

Also, about the noise. The new units have variable speed control, so you can keep it on low during product application and then turn it up as needed during filing.

If you really want to see how it works check out my video on Youtube. They have a great deal going right now too! Let me know if you have any questions.

I have one and me and my clients love it. I agree that initially it was a little awkard, but after some minor adjustments, it's awesome.

*I'm short, so it was a little tall for me. I started sitting on a pillow to fix that.

*Like Jesse said, I fold a towel to support the clients' arm.

* I don't have a problem carrying on conversation, I rarely have to use it on high anyway. It sucks plenty on lower levels too.

These issues were no big deal to make (for me). The amount of dust the Valentino collects and keeps out of my lungs, off my table, floor, and me and my clients' clothing is worth it.

I know there may be less expensive options, but this works for me....

Thank you so much for sharing. Smile
