Since I started blogging, my world has opened up to knowledge that I really would have never stumbled upon. From all the blog posts that I have read, one thing has really stuck with me. Not the, to tone or not to tone debate. Something far more important.
That was use a glass or crystal nail file. Why? It stops your nails from braking and you can file in both directions (yay!). On of the shapes that I am a huge fan of its the perfect square nail. However for myself, a normal nail file stops short of perfection. My nails will look oh so perfect till they grow out and boom nail brake! This happens far too often!
For that reason alone I needed to get my hands on the must have item. Not as easy I first thought. For one these baby's usually don't come cheap unless you want to risk it on eBay.
One day a couple of weeks back I saw a bunch of these glass nail files hanging on a Tiger store wall. In typical fashion, my eyes lit up with excitement hunting for a a purple file. How much did this bad boy cost? €2....yes two!
The file is made up of both glass and plastic. Frosted glass makes up the point of the file, while a tinted purple plastic helps to create an eye appealing and lightweight nail file.
But is it any good? I have to say it is. You really can't beat it, even on the value for money alone! I have been able to grow my nails out with no brakes, I have to say it is a nice change. Filing is now a lot faster, I was surprised at how fast and easy it was for my to file one hand!
Do you have a glass nail file? Do you fine its benefits are huge?
