Review: Rexall Glass Nail File
So a few weeks ago I was with someone who was purchasing a rather expensive 'glass file'. Til that day I had never heard of or used such a thing. Really, glass? So after their praise that such a product can change your usage of nail filers, and throwing out emery boards... made me want to try this out myself.
Ironically, I had broken nails during the day and left my emergency nail file in my other purse. So I went searching for a cheaper alternative (I love looking for cheaper items lol). Behold I found a local drugstore selling it. It was on sale (20%off) so a little under $5.
I thought I would cut myself on the 'glass'
Would this glass break in my bag?
it can file on both sides :)
The test: After 8 strokes
I didn't have to do as many stroaks as I would on a regualar nail file. Usually with a regular nail file I'd also end up having uneven, ridges under my nail. BOOO! But this none of that at all.
The only down side (if you're sensitive to 'touch'), if you move it the wrong way (ie. back) it feels like you're dragging your nails on a chalk board.
