Hi beautiful ladies and gentlemen, grab yourself a leaf blower so we can get all the tumbleweeds out of here! Boy it’s been a while, hasn’t it?
I wasn’t kidding when I said I’d be back soon, I’ve been head down getting things back to normal (just for you!). I have been reviewing some lovely products from Mont Bleu, namely their sparkly glass nail files. This was my very first introduction to glass files, and as hype would have it, they’re pretty darn awesome.
What they say: Durable, re-usable, genuine crystal glass nail files made from Czech tempered glass.
What I love about the nail files:
You never – ever – have to worry about replacing your file for loosing it’s ‘grit’. If you have the talons of a bald eagle, well, I can’t make you any promises but you get where I’m going with this. I’ve thrown away so many files over the years, they just don’t last. So I’m happy to report there is a solution.
The texture of the file is perfectly abrasive without being too over the top. Each file features two-sided textures, for heavy-duty and smooth filing. The choice is yours, baby. And to make you feel extra fancy, each file comes with its own velvet slip cover and crystallized Swarovski elements. Now you can bling while you buff (I KNOW you’ve always wanted to do that).
The one thing I don’t like:
There is one tiny down side. You see, I have nightmares about nails scratching down a blackboard, and occasionally, I buff my nails in the wrong way which gives the same sensation. I just had a massive attack of goosebumps writing that. But besides this, I give them a 10/10 for functionality and style. Trust me when I say they are beautiful and sturdy.
