Oh it’s Nail Thursday, of that there’s no doubt. So, I thought I’d share with you a new passion – glass nail files. I blimmin’ love these feckers. A suspicious sort, me, I’d been given one ages ago and passed it onto Aphrodite, because I just hated the thought of raking glass across my nails – I’m a bit squeamish about emery boards, too.
But like Lynnie, I had my nails done by varnisher-supreme, Leighton Denny, recently, and he used one on me, explaining that they’re an excellent tool to have in your arsenal because they can be used in any direction, unlike emery. Plus, unlike cutting, which leaves the top of the nail open, leading to weakness in the tip, the friction caused by a glass file will actually seal the nail. So over time, you get stronger, healthier nails.
What more excuse do you need, eh? Keen to buy? I recommend Leighton’s own Crystal Nail File set, €40 for a large and small file, from beautydevil.ie.
