Glass Nail Files

Do glass files have any benefits over emery boards?

"Glass files, also known as crystal files, regardless of how they are used, seal the keratin layers together at the edge of the nail, preventing peeling and chipping.  Glass files can be sanitized and sterilized. And they're great for professional use.

How do you clean a glass file?

"Soap and water, and I use a scrub brush to remove any nail debris that may be on it. Spray with antiseptic spray. Once a month, you can put your files in the dishwasher. Just keep them separate from your metal utensils, as they could break the files. The high water temperature removes any buildup on the files and makes them look new."

Do you need to do anything special to store it?

"Store them in their original sleeve to prevent breakage. They'll last a year or more if taken care of properly."
