I’ve been wanting to try a crystal glass nail file for ages and finally I’ve got one last month. The ‘last drop’ was the advice from Helen from Just Nice Things in the latest edition of Makeup4all Magazine. I knew that I had to get it!
I did not want to get anything very expensive at first just to see how I would like it. So I’ve picked a Bohemia nail file with no crystals or prints. I should have written down the price as I don’t remember how much I’ve got it for now. It was less than €10 I believe.
Here is how it looks like
I have been using it for less than a month but I am already converted. It is brilliant and is a pleasure to use, it files the nails so much faster and it’s easy to get the exact shape you want. But at the same time it is gentle and not harsh at all.
In fact, I’ve asked some of my close friends to try it, and they were impressed, too.
It is said that crystal glass nail file, when used regularly, prevents the nails from chipping and splitting. I can’t wait to see if it is true. I’ve also read that crystal nail file fights skin infections as ‘glass does not attract bacteria like metal and paper. Sounds great, wonder if it’s true.
A good quality crystal glass nail file is almost impossible to wear off. A lot of people recommended me a Leigton Denny’s one, which has a life time guarantee! I should probably get one soon.
The only thing I regret is that I did not get a crystal glass nail file sooner. Trust me, once you’ve tried it, most likely you will never want to use anything else. I am definitely getting these as a present for my Mum and some girlfriends. The cool thing is that you can get them in colour and with crystals, too.
