The best nail file for perfect nails #a to z Challenge

I’m participating with over 1000 bloggers in the 7th  A to Z Challenge  and will be blImage for Nogging the whole of April about the ‘ Things around My House’, from A to Z.  My Nail file is my pride and joy.

Do visit the A to Z Challenge posts on Facebook.

A well groomed person will always have well kept nails and many men and women go for regular manicures and pedicures. However, I’ve never been a mani-pedi type and didn’t bother with my nails till I received a KOH crystal Nail File.Image for Nail File
I was puzzled as I looked at it. What do I do with it?  However, G looked at me expectantly, waiting to hear the OOOHS and AAAHS so I quickly converted my gasp of surprise into one of appreciation  saying “Oh My God! Just what I wanted! What an unusual gift!”
 G looked suitably happy.
“I’m so glad you liked it,” she trilled, ” I didn’t know what to get someone I didn’t know.”
Well, that was a strange gift and she took a big gamble, I thought, as I tucked it away in my cupboard before it smashed into a million bits. And it stayed there till one day till curiosity got the better of me and I decided to give it a try. Rather gingerly I took it out of the velvet lined box and filed my nails. Fine dust flew around and when I touched the nails, I was shocked at how smooth the edges were and groomed my nails looked! Obviously G wasn’t the Blonde Bimbo she seemed to be. The KOH Crystal Nail file is really good value for money because you can have perfect nails in your own home!

    Since I always keep my nail short, never got a reason to file them. Cool gift though 🙂

    A nail filer is something you will find in every house. I like to keep my nails long. I mean they grow and I hate cutting them. But when they’re too long, then I have to chop them off!
    Painted and well filed make the hands look so gorgeous!

    I don’t think I’ve filed my nails since I was a teenager. I just like to keep my nails short so they look clean. I don’t like long nails around food and since I cook everyday, it’s short nails for me.

    I’m visiting from the A to Z Challenge.

      I use this file to keep my nails short. I do t have long nails either as I also cook everyday and handle grand children.

    I am not a Manicure-Pedicure woman, but a Nail File is a must in my bag. May be that’s because of the brittle nails that I have which chip easily.
