What Wikipedia says about glass nail files:

The main features of the Glass nail file are its curative and preventive properties. The unique surface of this type of nail file provides the best care without damaging the nail plate. When used regularly, nails may become much stronger and healthier, no longer split or break, and possibly avoid other common nail illnesses.

When I first got my VLCC nail file, I knew there is no going back to the metal ones, I need these in my life and migh as well stock up,well I just have two, might as well keep one in my bag for emergencies to file my nails so I am not tempted to peel them off or chop them, a file in time save nine 😛

When I ordered them I had no idea they will be exactly same, there was another brand called Panache and chances are they are all importing from the same place and naming and pricing them according to brand, and hence the cost difference, VLCC one is 349!!! This one is 200 and I think the third one is the same as well.MOre or less, you need one and hence I picked the expensive one thinking it will go a long time , but this one from Basicare turned out the same 🙂 So I thought, for starters you all can try this one instead of spending 349 at one go, as such this will last you till the time it breaks.

I have been looking for excuses to file my nails, a little here a bit there, and I have filed my toe nails straight across and my hand nails are now an oval, after a long time, because I used to keep them squaval all the time due to laziness to shape and file.

This file is hardened glass and has no metal to it so you can imagine how gentle and smoother the process of filing the nails will be, you will not get that squeaky sound that makes you go eek, no rough edges and the nails are filed and shaped in half the time as with metal filers, I don’t cut my nails, I just file them with this and done!

I will carry this everywhere for those sudden ridges and cracks and chips you find on the go, the file comes with a case which is good to protect the file from falling down and shattering, I think it will shatter when it falls, so be careful.

The main difference between VLCC and this one is that VLCC one comes with a velvet pouch which is indeed great for protection, this one comes with a simple plastic covering, which is fine to store but not to protect it from falls, so if you really have butter fingers, then get the black pouch one from VLCC.

It looks all white and powdery after the deed is done, you wash under water, clean it dry and it looks as good as new, I am so impressed with this, I have never like metal files, I own a dozen but find them very harsh and ineffective and filing nails. I try to file in one direction though I am tempted to saw my nails as well filing in one direction is good for your nails.

Why I HIGHLY recommend you switch to a glass nail file:

  • Faster than metal ones.
  • No squeaky sounds.
  • Better results and stronger nails.
  • As good as new when you wash it and clean with a cloth.
  • Does not wear out, will last you ages unless you drop it.
  • Very gentle on delicate nails.

I will never be able to use a metal file again, this is super effective and my nails love it, it is also super pretty to look at, the shaded purple and white.One very important thing i feel which applies to this and any nail file is that, if you have soft nails that bend, you wont be able to file them, you need hard nails, as in not even soft after the shower nails, your nails have to be dry and hard for the file to work.

Last word:

Just get rid of the metal ones like I did, get any one of these, or may be two for your hand bag as well, you will never be able to use any other nail file. Choose whether you want this simple or the thick velvet pouch from VLCC, the glass files from both are essentially the same.
