Me And Nail Files – From Age 10 To TodayFashion, Opinions · May 27, 2014, Tuesday · 3 comments
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mont Bleu. All opinions are 100% mine.
I was 10 when a classmate told me I have nicely round nails.
I looked at my hands and observed my fingers — yes, she could be right, they looked okay with the round shape of my digits.
“But I don’t want to wear polish,” I said with a pout.
“No need to use polish,” my classmate added, “just a good nail file to make them beautiful and cared for.”
I haven’t seen that classmate in years and I don’t even recall her name, but she was right– I didn’t need nail polish, just a good bunch of nail files I could use to shape my nails and keep them healthy and sound. 🙂 It was great!
When I turned 14, one of my aunts bought me a manicure set that contained two aluminum nail files. They were shiny and beautiful, but they got rusty over the years and several washes done wrong, so I had to throw them away. 🙁
So now I got for either of the two remaining options:
- plastic nail files (they cost a few cents at the Chinese store down town)
- files that are half plastic, half glass, or entirely glass
I like plastic nail files, but they tend to break easily. Sure, they’re so cheap that I could buy a thousand of them and still stay within budget, but why take so much disturb? Nah. They can break the right moment you need them and the shop nearby has closed already. Not fun.
Glass nail files are totally another story. They are sturdy in comparison with plastic and it makes for longer lasting nail files you only have to keep clean and shiny. 😉 You can save a lot of money like that.
For example, look at these glass nail files I found at Design-Glassware.com. They use pretty luxurious crystals — SWAROVSKI® ELEMENTS — and the glass comes from the Czech Republic. They’re manufactured by Mont Bleu and they’re all hand work. How wonderful, right? 😀
