Budget tip: Glass Nail File from Ebay

I recently bought a glass nail file on Ebay. I know that you can buy nail files at every drugstore, but I just wanted to try one on Ebay since it's inexpensive ^__^. It comes in many colors and I received a yellow one from the seller. I've tried many different kinds of nail files before, like nail files made of emery paper, ceramic, metal et cetera, but we all know that glass nail files are the best for our nails.
Glass nail file advantages
One of the top advantages associated with this product is the life span in which it can be used. You can use it over and over again and it can be easily cleaned and washed. It's suitable for natural and acrylic nails. Nail files made of steel typically cause the nail to chip or to crack because they are too rough on the nail. Glass nail files, on the other hand, help reduce the amount of chipping, splitting and peeling! Also, it won't become worn down that easily like emery board and metal nail files and it creates and leaves a soft and smooth finish.

Price
I bought it on Ebay for $0.99 (€0,70) from seller Edeal8 and the shipping is FREE. It even includes a sleeve to keep the file protected.

Appearance
It has a rough surface on both sides much like regular files. The yellow part doesn't have a rough surface which makes it more comfortable to hold while filing your nails.
EDIT:
It remains good longer than a cheap nail file which isn't made of glass. However, this one from Ebay aint that good after all. It's worn down quickly (probably a month). You can better invest in a more expensive one, than this one from Ebay

  1. Lol, ik had er ook zo eentje een keer gekocht. Ging ik er per ongeluk op zitten en brak ie doormidden. Hahaha. Maar een euro is niet veel voor zo'n glasvijl. Ik ben er alleen te lui voor om mijn nagels te vijlen, knip ze veel liever.

  4. Ik heb er pasgeleden ook een aantal glasvijlen besteld die zo goedkoop waren. Ik heb een wat duurdere glasvijl van Herome, maar ik raak die soms wel eens even kwijt. Daarom leek het me handig om een aantal back-ups te bestellen via Ebay! :P

  8. I would recommend not to buy such cheap glass nail files, they would disappoint you comparing to Czech made glass nail files, looking at the surface of the file I can say it WILL NOT last forever, which is the main reason when you buy glass nail file.

  9. Haha it looks like you're advertising on my blog right now ;). I agree that it won't last forever, but it does last longer than nail files made of steel or emery boards.  Besides, it's way better for our nails. However, i can't compare it with "Czech made glass nail files" since i've never tried one before ;) so i can't judge about those. Would love to compare it though, can you send me an email about it:    memorabledaysx3@gmail.com
