If there is one thing which makes me cringe, grimace and grind my teeth is filing my nails. For me, filing my nails is as uncomfortable as your teeth getting accidentally in contact with foil paper or hearing a piece of chalk squeaking on an old fashioned board. I hate it and when my nails are too long, I've been known to get a small pair of scissors and cut the excess before resorting to a nail file. Using nail clippers make me cringe even more. When someone uses one, I find it so unbearable, I want to leave the room.
After reading a review on a posh (read: more than £10) crystal nail file from Lipglossiping.com, I've been asking myself if opting for a crystal file would make the whole filing process less unbearable. I was a bit hesitant about forking out £8 in this crystal nail from Tesco, raging inside that I had never paid as much for a nail file in my entire life but I am so glad I've made the investment.
I still grimace, especially when I miss the nail but the whole filing process is 100% easier, quicker and fuss free all around. I was so scared before: The nail file looks so sharp, almost like a blade, I was scared that it would be too abrasive but it's perfect and it's just what I needed all along. I am a bit cross with myself for not having made the plunge sooner.
The world needs to know about brilliant and revolutionary crystal nail files are. Go and invest in one, you won't regret it. Even Jacie, from You’ve Got Nail.com swears by them. I've seen a cute 'normal' glass nail file from Revlon whilst browsing Superdrug, which only cost £4.99. I might get it as a spare. It’s a miracle I’ve not lost my Tesco one!
Why do nail technicians still keep using traditional nail files?
Have you got a crystal or glass nail file yourself?
