Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.
The other day one of my homegirls asked me which I preferred; emery boards or crystal nail files. While I have both, I lean more towards one than the other. Know which one that is?
I am team crystal nail files all the way! Aside from being greener and re-usable, they leave my nails in such better condition than emery boards. And while I know crystal nail files can be a bit on the pricey side ($8 for the one from Sephora), they last for quite some time. The only down side about these kids is that they break on a dime. Exhibit A.
Yeah, whoever said they didn’t lied. The good news is, you can still use them even if they break. Now if they shatter on the floor in the middle of a Macy’s, that’s another story. I still keep emery boards (especially cute Hello Kitty ones) around for alternatives.
Here is an excellent article about the pros and cons of emery boards and crystal nail files.
