Here at Protein Formula, we believe healthy nails and the greatest manicures start with the best nail prep. When it comes to filing and shaping the nails, most of us would usually reach for an emery board or even a metal file to shape natural nails but perhaps it’s time to start considering the unsung hero of nail care – the crystal nail file.
While often seen as the more luxurious option, glass or crystal files have more benefits than you may initially think. Not yet convinced? Let’s delve into just some of the benefits crystal nail files offer over the grit file.
1. Gentle precision Crystal nail files are very gentle on the nails, which makes them suitable for frequent use and can help prevent splitting and peeling. They will not rip or tear the free edge like metal or emery files and are so fine, they file the free edge to a fine dust. This allows for more control which stops you from filing too much away.
2. Hygiene Unlike files made of paper or metal, glass files are non-porous and can be sterilised easily with a rinse under warm water or a wipe with disinfectant. Protein Formula Crystal Glass Nail Files are dishwasher safe, making it even easier to keep them bacteria free!
3. Durability Crafted from tempered glass, crystal files are exceptionally durable and longer lasting than metal counterparts. They do not wear down over time and this longevity makes them a much more sustainable option. You won’t need to repurchase as often and with the right care, a glass nail file can last you a lifetime!
4. Say Goodbye to Snags We’ve all experienced the annoyance of a snagged nail, which can lead to painful tears and breakage. Glass nail files prevent snags by sealing the nail edge as it’s filed, creating a smooth surface. This feature not only enhances the overall nail health but also keeps your manicure looking flawless for longer.
5. Versatility Glass files can come in all shapes and sizes, meaning they can cater to a wider range of aesthetic preferences. Protein Formula Crystal Nail Files come in two sizes – Mini and Medium – so you can keep your nails fresh at home and on the go. We also offer a Crystal Tool Trio which includes both size files and also comes with a stylish crystal cuticle tool packaged in a sleek leather pouch - the perfect stylish addition to your nail prep routine!.
The benefits of glass nail files are as clear as the pristine glass they are made from. Eco-friendly, gentle and durable whilst also being the more hygienic option. Crystal nail files are the ideal tools to add to your nail care routine to keep your nails healthier for longer. Shop our Crystal Glass Nail Files.
