OK...the only time in my life I had decent nails was while pregnant. (And no, it wasn't the prenatal vitamins, I've take boatloads of those over the years.) To complicate matters, I cannot use nail polish on my fingernails...yes, even three- or five-free...toes are OK, it's my eyes that are sensitive, and I don't get my toes up by my eyes. :-)So I've battled very peely nails that snag on everything in sight; filing with anything just seemed to make it worse! (When I tried a popular Japanese nail buffing kit years ago, it took over a year to fix the damage; my nails wouldn't get beyond the tips of my fingers, they were so thin.) And clipping usually left my nail tips so sharp they were weapons! When I saw the reviews here, at first I thought, Eh, I've tried fancy files from Sally's before, not much different than usual. But recently I needed a couple of cheaper items for a Sephora order to get free shipping, and remembered I wanted to try this (it's never in stock at my store). So I've had it about 10 days now...revolutionary. Really. My nail tips are smooth, they've been growing out, have had to touch up TWICE (on ONE nail each time) since the initial filing. Just wow. Am keeping in case when not in use, trying NOT to break it.

If i could only have one glass file for the rest of my life, it would be this. Great product overall. Very effective and is very easy to chizzel your nails into the perfect shape. Les pressure contributes to a better end result.

Amazing. Took me over a year to wear this puppy out and I use a nail file every day to touch up. Doesn't ever snag or catch and can still munch through nail really quickly if you're trying to shorten your nails significantly depending on how much pressure you use.Good stuff.

An amazing filer! Even though I saw at my nails, this never made my nails tear or crumble. You could really do a single swipe to tidy up your nails. I will not repurchase this filer because it is glass. I dropped it on my tile-floor and it broke into over a dozen pieces. With cats and being clumsy, I cannot buy again. Although it is $10, I feel that is is worth it. Easy to clean and easy to use. Just DON'T drop it!

I love these! I have one in my purse, one in my kitchen, one in my bed table and one in my car. It does a great job smoothing my nails, and I have noticed far less peeling of my nails since I ditched the emory boards.

Way better and smoother than emery boards, lasts longer too. Can't believe how long it took me to find out about these!

You'll like this, especially if your nails are prone to breakage and splitting at the ends when filing. This tool also files much faster than an emery board. In fact, I liked it so much I bought the small version for my travel kit. Not sure how long they last, but they're not too expensive and the nice case they come with ensures they won't wear down before their time. Only cons: The tip isn't really point enough to be particularly useful, and I wish the "active" part of the file was a little larger, but it's not a big deal. Keep in mind, these are only useful for filing your actual nail. I still keep emery boards on hand for roughing up shellac top coats prior to removal with an acetone soak.

It's a good file that really smooths the edges of my nail.The case is cheap plastic but I have yet to break it,it's a good file for a decent price considering it won't wear down so quickly

I'm totally in love with this file! It's super-cute and amazingly effective, with a perfect case to keep it clean and safe and portable. The price isn't that bad, especially since this isn't a disposable item. I used this for a couple of weeks and had to run back to buy the purse-sized one so I always have one with me.What really won my heart was how I can FILE MY NAIL WHILE POLISHED. No, it's not something I recommend or plan to do, but you know how you can break a nail when you try to open your car door and your hand slips? (No? Maybe it's just me...) Anyhoo, I had a fresh manicure and I was able to even out my nail shape without disturbing the polish. Incredible, and not something you can successfully do with those paper emery boards!

Wonderful! I’ve been using this for years and recently bought a cheap pack of regular sand paper-y nail files so I could keep them at work, in my purse, etc. I can’t use them! The texture makes my skin crawl, and they take forever to achieve what this file does in a few seconds. I have SUPER strong nails, and it only takes a few swipes to shape them. I also like that the texture doesn’t make me shudder as much as an emery board or metal nail file. I’m quite clumsy and after years of owning, transporting, and not using the plastic case it comes with, I still have yet to break it.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
