Hi friends, I have something new and wonderful to show you today. I was fortunate enough to have been invited to try out and review a wonderful glass nail file from Monte Bleu Shop & Their Wholesaler: Monte Bleu Design (for purchases in the USA: Glass Fuzion).
Now my questions and concerns with these nail files. Are they sturdy? What about sharpness? Will they last a long time? How well do they work? Once I saw the wide and varied choices that you could choose from, well what can I say, I just had to take them up on the offer for a review and giveaway of their beautiful nail files. They have everything in glass nail files from regular sized to mini, from hand painted to jeweled to blinged with Swarovski Crystals! And anyway isn’t that what I am here for? To test out things just like this and answer those very questions that I found I was asking myself? Obviously I said yes to the chance to review one of these beauties.
My nail file was sent to me very securely packaged for shipment, honestly I don’t know if they are all wrapped the same way my package was, simply because, sometimes it’s the representative of the company that sends out a sample of their products to test and not their usual shipping department. However, in our correspondence, they did indicate that they were sending my information to their logistics department to have them ship to me. I did need to use a knife to open the packaging, it was taped up so well that I believe the packing was waterproof! And that is a good thing as this was shipped out all the way from the Czech Republic! Oh and Yes folks this is a World Wide Giveaway… for 5 winners! Woot! Riah’s first World Wide Giveaway and for 5 winners? Wow!
Ok so I skipped far ahead of myself here, and as you can see I am so excited to offer our friends from all over the world this wonderful giveaway “and now back to our regularly scheduled program.”… errr umm I mean “regularly scheduled review, then the giveaway.” lol
I received my nail file in a lovely box and the file is so beautiful I want to show it off everywhere I go! This nail file is not only made of clear glass (they have black glass files as well) but it is blinged out with Swarovski Crystals! The design I received has the name “Bubbles” which you see below, the name is so perfect, don’t you think? I sure wish these pictures did the files justice, trust me, there is nothing like seeing these in person!
The thickness of the glass file is nice, the weight is nice and the nail file seems very sturdy. The edges of the file are nice and smooth, so as for cutting yourself, I wouldn’t worry about it unless you break it, and I am a clutz and although I did drop it once it hasn’t broken nor shown signs of cracks or damage. As far as longevity of the file, well now that I’ve had it in my hands and used it several times, I’ve discovered it’s easy to remove the nail filing dust off the file area and it shows no sign of wearing out yet. If you think about traditional nail files, you will remember that all they are is sand or sand like substance glued onto the backing… these nail files are glass that is possibly sand blasted to get that rough filing edge. Of course this will last! 🙂 The grain on my file feels like a medium coarseness and the opposite side feels just a slight bit finer.
I tried to take pictures of this lovely glass nail file that I received and the best I could get is the one below. I need to learn more about settings on digital cameras so I can capture the beauty of bling on things I receive and not have the sparkle & shine take over the picture in a glowing mass that messes up any focus on the item. lol
While looking once more at their websites, I found myself drooling over all these lovely nail files, each one is a piece of art in itself and they really should be displayed… but remember to display in your home/beauty shop or what have you, groupings of 3 is a must. lol Yes really! 🙂 And I plan on going to go there to order 2 more someday soon… and I’ll tell you what else, they now have Bling on there Hair brushes… ahhhh, yes, yet another one that I must have! 🙂
All-told, I believe that if your into beauty tools and Bling then Mont-Bleu is for you and their websites are a must see. And don’t forget those people on your gift lists that would go nuts over these beautiful nail files. I love to find unique gifts like these for the holidays, *nudge nudge wink wink* (yes I am giving a gift hint to family and friends!)
I wish to thank the folks at Monte Bleu for entrusting me, for being so very wonderful in offering me this product to review. I am so SOLD on these nail files, and I will be replacing all my normal stick files with yours. Besides they look so beautiful that they are a lovely accent on makeshift beauty vanity in my cute little “dressing room”… they distract from the mess that is currently all around in that small room. I cannot help but smile every time I sit there!
