Let’s find out why: Please visit our website, Glass nail file: Please visit our website, Glass nail file Glass nail file systems consists of a glass nail file, soft plastic scissors, a glass cuticle cleaner and other tools for cleaning under nails. A large range of sizes and shapes are available and they can be purchased online for as little as $30 for an entire kit. Both metal file kits and glass nail file kits will contain the same tools. The only difference is that glass nail file kits are made entirely of glass. Glass nail files are made entirely of glass which is usually etched to roughen it. The etched surface is used to shape the nails. According to salon specialists who have used the glass nail file, they state that the files are much easier to use. The glass nail file scrapes away at the surface at the nail quickly and shapes the nail efficiently. The glass nail file is also easier to clean and sterilize after every use. Metal files on the other hand tend to corrode over time as they are sterilized. Glass nail files are also available in a variety of grits by which nails can be shaped. As a result, there is very little chance of your nails having frayed ends. This is not true with metal files. Metal files are usually serrated on side. This creates a rough metallic surface which actually grates away at your nails. Metal files create a rough nail end which is more likely to chip and fray. Most salon owners now prefer to use glass nail file systems which will ensure a smooth nail edge and a better nail finish.
