Sephora Crystal Nail File
« on: November 15, 2013, 12:28:31 AM »
I just purchased my second one of these little jewels and thought I should make sure everyone knows how great they are!  I have had my first one at least five years and it was still fine...until I dropped it on my ceramic tile floor and broke it. :cry:  Otherwise I would not have needed a new one still.  This type of file is so much more gentle than an emery board.  It leaves the edges very smooth and I find they don't split or crack as easily.  When the file gets dusty I just wash it off and it's good to go.

There have been some improvements made since I bought my first one -- there is a case, for one thing -- and both sides of the file are meant to be used.  My old one was smooth on one surface, which seemed a bit silly.  Of course, the price went up a little, to $10, but the case is nice and I got 20% off besides.  They also have mini, travel-sized ones for $8.  Both sizes come in pink or purple with the coordinated case.

I decided I did not need a mini, as I already have a D-I-Y version.  That can go in my makeup bag.

I especially recommend this for you who have soft, peeling nails, that crack easily.  This file will give them a smooth finish to your manicure without damage.  One reviewer even stated it could double as a weapon!  Now there's multi-tasking for you! :nail:+ :bat:

I have the old-style one-sided one, too. I love it. Thanks for letting us know it's been improved! I may just have to pick up a new one ...

Glad I could help!  If I hadn't dropped mine I wouldn't know they had changed.

You know, I've been meaning to tell Sue not to change her sense of humor any while she's improving everything else in her life.  Think she will get the message?
