Hi my dear readers! Today I have something different for you. Not the regular nail polish/nail art post. A lot of people have been asking me what kind of nail care products I use, and while I don't have time yet to put together a post on my nail care regimen, I want to share with you an important part of it today.
I actually don't spend a lot of time taking care my cuticles or using a lot of different products, but I do take time to shape and file my nails. I think the shape of my nails is a huge part of how my swatches look, and it's really the canvas for nail art, so I like to take the time to make sure I do my best. Now, I'm no pro at taking care of my nails, but I did spend a lot of time reading other people's reviews and experiences with different products. I've read that glass nail files are supposed to be less harmful to your nails and can reduce splitting, so when first I came across some glass nail files at Sephora, I just thought I'd try out something new and give it a shot. And that was how I got hooked. Even thought I still remember that weird sensation I got when I first started using it. It gave me goosebumps haha! Anyone know what I'm talking about? Anyway, I was delighted I could try out some different ones when I was given the opportunity to try out these glass nail files from Mont Bleu.
The pair of beautiful glass nail files came in a pretty pink box in black velvet sleeves. There was a longer one, which I keep on my desk for when I do my nail routine, and a shorter one that I keep in my purse. I've found it super convenient to have a short one in my purse because I tend to find myself with chipped nails that need a quick filing during the day. I've been using these for a couple of months now, and they still work great even though I haven't cleaned them yet. I've read that you're supposed to wash them with water to restore the grittiness every now and then, but I haven't found the need to do that yet and they're doing a great job keeping my nails nicely shaped.
These are the two sizes that I received, medium (135mm) and small (90mm). They also offer glass files in large size, which is 195mm.
I just LOVE the rhinestones on the nail files. It's so much prettier than the Sephora one I have haha! All of Mont Bleu's nail files are made with tempered glass and all the rhinestones are Swarovski crystals, and they're definitely high quality products. Mont Bleu also offer a range of designs for the nail files, which I think are great for personal use, and also as small gifts to friends! :)
Check out Mont Bleu's website for more information on these beautiful nail files and other accessories they offer. A set of these glass nail files retails for $21. They also offer free shipping to the US on orders over $82.
