Elisabeth ordered this nail file a few months ago and accidentally ended up getting two. The lovely person she is, she gave her extra one to me. I was skeptical. I grew up using the burnt orange emery boards you find at the grocery store. Why would a $7 crystal file be any better than what I use? But, I was willing to give it a try because Elisabeth had done research and determined this file was legit good.
She was right. I like it. It glides so smoothly against my nails, I couldn’t believe it. I’ve been won over. The file has grated against my nails a few times like the classic nail files so there may not be getting away from that completely. It’s also possible I just haven’t figured out how to use it well enough yet. With that said, because the file is fairly thick, it can’t get into the space on the side of your nail so there is one mark against it. Otherwise, it’s a gem and I enjoy using it. I feel so fancy and professional. And sometimes, it’s worth your mental health to do some self-care that makes you feel fancy and professional.
