A few years ago a good friend of mine had the scare of her life when she contracted a fungal disease after receiving a mani-pedi. She went to a very reputable salon, but the instruments weren’t properly cleaned, and it took her months to recover. Since then, I’ve shied away from nail salons entirely and have been taking care of my nails at home. But, it’s not always easy! My hands really take a beating — between helping out with the girls’ horses, gardening and (of course!) cleaning, my hands don’t always look too pretty! So, anything that makes my hands and nails look better is a welcome addition to my beauty arsenal. And recently, I discovered that you can buy glass nail files from Mont Bleu.
Why glass, you ask? First, nail files created from Mont Bleu’s Czech hardened-glass can be easily sanitized using rubbing alcohol or peroxide. Unlike metal (which can rust) and porous emery or pumice, glass mail files are completely hygienic.
Next, glass nail files make your nails look great! The file’s surface is very fine, so you can shape your nails easily with no chipping, cracking or peeling. Plus, the files’ polishing surface actually has a lifetime guarantee.
And finally, they are just so pretty! Choose from Mont Bleu’s rainbow of hues, or select files embellished with sparkling Swarovski crystals (pictured). They make this beauty routine less of a chore and quite a bit more pleasant!
Mont Bleu was founded in Prague, by Akop Nikogosyan, a designer with 30 years of experience in glass manufacturing. In addition to these gorgeous nail files, the Mont Bleu firm also produces a wide variety of luxury beauty tools like exquisite manicure sets, perfume bottles, makeup brushes and even hair accessories. Plus, Mont Bleu carries a full line of lovely crystal jewelry – from earrings, to brooches, to rings and bracelets and more. Mont Bleu’s sister company, SiS, is a luxury glass fashion brand that includes home accessories like stunning glass tiles and bath accessories.
These glass nail files would also make a wonderful gift and (hint, hint) don’t forget that Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Available at fine retailers nationwide.
I give these glass nail files from Mont Bleu an enthusiastic (and well manicured) “thumbs up!”
