Why Glass Nail Files
There are two ways that glass nail files are manufactured, first tiny glass filings are adhered to a glass stick using a super-glue like substance combined with heat, we call these fake files as they do not last. The “fake files” as we call them are readily available at most local retailers, and Amazon has a wide selection of fakes. Your highest quality glass files are manufactured from the second method of manufacturing, which is to cut from actual pre-treated sheets of thick glass. The surface of the crystal is treated using an acid process to roughen it, creating the filing surface. This method, patented and used in the Czech Republic, where we import our blanks for painting. There is a way to spot the fakes and will be sharing that information with you later on. The glass nail file glides over the nail tip. It doesn’t tear the nail like the emery board or metal file so that you can file in both directions, and it smooths out the nail tip as it files. No jagged edges to smooth out. When you file your nails with a glass file, you’ll notice how smooth the nail tip is. The glass file closes the nail tip and seals it, preventing water and debris from leaching into your nail. After using a crystal nail file for about one month, users report a noticeable difference in their nails being stronger, and they “don’t chip, crack, and peel as much.” Glass is non-porous and very hygienic. No bacteria or debris can grow on the filing surface or get trapped in the roughened surface of the crystal file. The same is true for the crystal pumice file (Spa Bar), which can be left right in the bathtub without fear of mold, mildew, fungus, or bacteria growing in it or on it! There are no varying grits of a glass file, except for the Spa Bar. The Spa Bar is made with a coarser surface and can be used for calluses, dry skin, toenails, fingernails, artificial nails, pet nails, and hair removal. Glass nail files meet all of the sanitization requirements of the FDA. They can be sanitized in alcohol, under UV light, and baked in an autoclave. Because of their hygienic nature, glass files are perfect for diabetics – especially the Spa Bar. You don’t have to worry about cutting yourself while you’re taking care of your feet, the way diabetics do. Glass nail files will last years, if not a lifetime. The glass nail file scores high on the “green-o-meter” because its made from recycled materials, and several factories use lead-free, environmentally safe dyes. They last for such a long time that landfills will not be impacted by constant consumption as they are recyclable!
