Nail File With A Difference

 

My fingernails are not long and I seldom wear polish, but I do like them to look cared for.  Over the years I have swapped between using a steel nail file and emery boards when manicuring my nails, but recently I heard of a glass nail file.

An online search discovered “crystal glass” nail files for sale at several outlets, so this morning I purchased one.  It even has its own little case to keep it in.




Like any new toy, I have now tried it out!  There was no problem with the filing and it left a nice smooth edge to the nails.  A white powder (nail dust?) accumulated on the file, but this was easy to brush off.  The instructions say it can be washed in warm water as well.

The one thing I have found unusual is that it has left my smooth rounded nails very sharp – excellent for scratching anyone if I ever felt so inclined!

Stay happy 😊

Margaret.

  4. How strange that the new file left your nails sharp. My own nails are looking pretty bad after a season of gardening. Hopefully winter will give them time to grow out.

  5. Wow. For once Germany was faster! 😉
    My Mum presented me with one (she passed 2011) - I love and use only this one.
    You get them at pharmacies here.
    Enjoy and have a nice day! x

  7. Are you a Game of Thrones fan? Maybe it is made from dragon glass and can have a dual purpose!

  8. Maybe I should convince F to get one for my 'nails'. Sharp and good for scratching right up my alley. xxx Mr T

  10. I too have never heard of a glass nail file, sounds intriguing. I have recently lost my metal nail file which I have had for over 30 years, it is my house somewhere and I am waiting for it to turn up! Maybe I need to get a glass one while I wait....
