Nail buffing

Any tips for buffing your finger/toe nails to a nice, glossy shine? I almost never wear nail polish, but like my nails to look good. I've noticed that brand-new buffers make my nails really, really shiny, but after a couple uses, not so much.

So, any tips on how to get that mirror shine?

    I used to get good results with a chamois buffer and buffing cream. The kind of buffers that smooth out ridges make your nails weaker in the long run because you're buffing off the top layer of your nail.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    Here is another vote for the Buffing Cream and Chamois buffer. I get a really nice shine when I decide to let my toes breathe a little.
    Do you know why they call it "PMS"? Because "Mad Cow Disease" was taken.
