I once mentioned that I only use glass nail files when I do my nails, and ever since many of my readers have been asking questions about them.
I got my first (and only, until recently) glass nail file from my best friend about five or six years ago for my birthday. It was encrusted with Swarovski crystals, and she told be that now I should file my nails in public more often, so that other people can see the crystals and think of me as chic and glamorous.
And I got hooked right away! So what are the advantages of using a glass nail file?
- Glass files are not as harsh as regular sandpaper or metal nail files. They will minimize chipping and peeling of your nails.
- Glass files are forever! By that I mean that they are permanently etched and will never become worn down. You can’t say that about “regular” files, can you? (I’ve been using the glass file my friend gave me daily ever since I got it!)
- They are easy to clean. You can wash a glass file with soap and water or even sterilize it with heat or alcohol.
The crystal glass file I got from my friend was made by the company called Mont Bleu, and last week they provided me with a new file for testing! Needless to say, it was as good as my first one.
