Leighton Denny Crystal Nail File.

I know what you're thinking, 'is she reviewing a nail file?' Just give me a chance here.

This is something I have been wanting to get for the majority of the last year. But I do that thing where I find other things to buy, that are usually limited edition so never got round to buying this.

I broke a nail about a week ago and had to file it down with a refular nail file and it made me want to be sick. If there's one thing I hate, it's nail filing. The sound, the feeling. It just grates on me. I do not like it one bit. That and the fact my nails were looking a bit raggedy, so I finally ordered on Wednesday and it came today.

It also comes with a lifetime guarantee, which means I just spent £12 on a nail file I will be using for the rest of my life.

I had to use it right away but of course, knew I wanted to blog about the results.

My nails look super dry but I'd just taken my polish off right before I did this so that's probably why.



What www.leightondenny.com says:
The 'Rolls Royce' of Nail Files. Simply turns the nails to dust, makes filing fast and easy!

I completely agree with this. It really does turn the nail to dust. I tried photographing this but none of them came out right, typical.

It might be difficult to tell from the photos but the surface of the nail file is completely smooth, unlike normal nail files. Lead crystal is also a lot finer then glass. I know Nails Inc. do a glass nail file for £15. It's easy to clean, the dust washes right off under running water.

I know there isn't a massive difference between the before and after shots but they're all the same length and shape now and I'm happy with that.

Going back to why I dislike regular nail files. This is smooth and feels pleasant when you're filing your nails. Whereas I find with a normal file it can be extremely rough. I used a mixture of filing from the outside into the middle and filing back and forth (you can do that with this nail file!) to get the end result. It also doesn't sound like you're rubbing your fingernails on sand paper. The noise is very subtle and hardly noticeable.

I'm glad I finally made this investment! I'm more then happy with the results.

Would you make an investment into your nails like that, knowing you had a lifetime guarantee? Or do you think that regular nail files are more then fine? Let me know.
