I heard a lot of talk of glass nail files on the nail board and that was all new to me. I'm just begining to do my own nails again and skipping the salons. With salons, they use boards and drills (I had acrylics). Wow, since doing my own natural nails w/ this glass file, I'm amazed of how gentle it is! I noticed with the boards, they literally sawed my nails and made them look even more rough. This glass file is expensive but it is worth it. Plus, it will last a lot longer than those $2.00 cheap boards.
I love this nail file. I will never buy another emery board again. I cannot believe that I didn't try this sooner. I read about it on one of the boards and saw it when I was out browsing at Sephora. It does such a great job of filing with precision and without tearing your nail's edge. When it gets dull you are supposed to rinse it with water and it is supposed to be like new again. I haven't had to do that yet. I am fearful of dropping it though so I store it carefully in its plastic case when I am finished with it. I may purchase two more for work and my car because I cannot stand a chipped nail.
Yipee! I got this on sale for 10 QAR each. (around $4). Which made it cheaper than the other glass files I've seen around here, and it works pretty well. I even bought a backup, in case I break it. But this seems like a "buy once, use forever" product, which I like. :)
I did not find superior to a regular plastic file. I guess it should have been obvious (it is called glass) but I did not expect it to shatter into a million pieces when I accidentally dropped it- face it, you are not super graceful when you are picking things up with freshly manicured nails
A very nice nail file. Tired of regularly buying emery boards, I splurged on this file today and am very happy with how smooth it has made my nails. It doesn't require much effort to use, and seems very durable.
i had another glass file previous to this one (la crosse, from sally) and it was alright. i never got why it was supposedly *so* much better than a metal file. i have sorta crappy nails after biting them for 24 years of my life, but finally, they're pretty healthy. the la crosse glass file didn't seem to help lessen the breaking or the peeling for me like it did for some, so i was about ready to give up.
when i was in sephora for my birthday i saw their glass file. i was away from home, so i actually needed a file either way, so i decided to go ahead and splurge the $8 to get this one. let me tell you, my expectations weren't all that high, but WOW. i was amazed at how much better the sephora glass file was vs. the la crosse glass file. even though i go to NB nearly every day, i seriously thought that all glass files were the same. i stand corrected. sephora's glass file really is all that and a bag of chips. next time i order online or i'm in store i will definitely get a second one to go into my bag. LOVE THIS.
After learning that glass nail files would cause less breakage in my nails i never looked back. The glass nail file by Sephora is amazing makes my nails look fabulous!
Love this! I use to go through a few nail files a year but I've had this for over a year and it still works just as well as the day I bought it. Also it's not too grainy, is that the word, it doesn't tear up my nails like some low quality ones do
I love this nail file. I have really thick, hard nails, so I run through disposable nail files pretty quickly. I love that I can use this one over and over, simply by washing it. It never seems to get dull, either, and I've had mine for a year or so, now. Even if I have to replace it in a few years I won't mind.
It's really nice and gentle, but sturdy. One thing I despise about traditional nail files is that to file down nails quickly you need to use a coarser grain, which can crack and split nails. This one files down quickly, but leaves nails smoothed, and polished looking. There's no need for a fine grain file in addition to this one.
I think this is a great investment, that will actually save you money in the end, since you only have to buy this once. I don't think I'll ever use anything but glass nail files from now on.
Love, love this nail file. Files immaculately, is washable, and is surprisingly durable given it is made of glass. I've misplaced mine grrrr but will have to replace for sure.
