Review: Messy Mansion Glass Nail Files

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!


We all know the first step to an awesome mani is using the right tools to care for our nails. And for me, glass nail files are a must-have nail tool.


I tend to struggle with the nails on my right hand (ironically, I'm left-handed), especially my index and middle nails--they split, chip, and break like crazy. Back in the day when I used to wear acrylic nails, those nails would actually wear down at a noticeably fast rate, so I suppose it's no surprise that now that I wear natural nails, they'd take quite a beating.


The only thing that works to keep them in any sort of decent shape involves two things--a rebuilding base coat (I prefer Barielle's), and glass nail files. When I use both of these together, I can actually manage to get natural length out of even those two problem nails. And my favorite glass nail files are from Messy Mansion:

Why are they my favorite? Three reasons. First, they're excellent quality. I've been using my set for months, and they perform well, are effective but gentle on my nails, and still look brand new. I'm extremely impressed.


Second, you get two files, one the perfect size for your purse. I absolutely have to have a nail file with me whenever I leave the house--many nail owies have been saved from being complete nail disasters by a strategic application of my file to prevent a complete break.


Finally, I love the cases they come with. Other glass files I've had come with a little fabric sleeve, and my file slips right out of it in my purse. These close well, and keep your file from scratching up everything else you carry with you:

What can I say--I love these files and hope to never be separated from them! If you haven't yet tried a glass nail file, get one asap--they do so much less damage to your nails while still getting the job done effectively and quickly.


You can find these beauties in the Messy Mansion store.


Happy filing!
