You may have noticed... I love nails and nailart! I started this blog initially to share my love of nails, and then it grew into other things. I've learned a lot about nail care along the way, and one of the most important tools for having nice nails is a good nail file!
My natural nails are very thin, and they bend and peel easily. In addition to keeping them moisturized, filing the nails is so important to avoiding damage. If you're still using metal nail files, I hope I can change your mind and get you to switch to crystal. Metal drags on the nail, and leaves the edge damaged, and more likely to peel. Rough files of any kind are all bad for my delicate nails.
It's widely known that the best crystal nail files are made in the Czech Republic, so when Aveniro, a Czech company, asked me if I wanted to try their nail files, I jumped at the chance! I received a travel nail file and a regular nail file with gradient colored handles and plastic sleeves, a rhinestone-studded nail file in a velvet sleeve, and a glass double-sided manicure tool in a plastic storage tube.
Erika's blog, Notes From My Dressing Table, that you can tell by looking at the base of the file if it's etched like these Aveniro files. In the picture above, you can see that the file is beveled from the handle. Aveniro uses chemical etching
The manicure stick is so nice, with a lovely heft to it. I have been using plastic manicure sticks for awhile, and I couldn't believe how much cuticle came off my nail with this tool. It was so easy to use, and I love the pointed end for cleaning up under the nail.
I also thought it was pretty neat that Aveniro is working with their community to support several initiatives with children and the handicapped, including a music program and a camp.
Right now, Aveniro's website isn't set up for direct ordering, and they are geared towards larger, custom orders. If you contact them, via their website, or Facebook, they can help you find a retailer in your area! ETA: You can buy their files directly from Classy Nail Files!
Have you discovered the joy of using a well-made crystal nail file?
