How to Use
Bona Fide Beauty Czech Glass Files are easy to use: simply file your nails with a light touch, in any direction, along the nail's edge.
Unlike emery boards and metal files, glass files file in both directions! The fine grit permanently etched abrasive surface feels gentle on nails & allows precision filing, expertly shape nails for professional results.
Bona Fide Beauty's Czech Glass Files are designed for regular, long-term use. They feature a gentle fine to medium grit double-sided etched filing surface which is gentle on natural nails.
Reusable & easy to clean
Bona Fide Beauty glass files are hygienic, reusable and designed for multiple use.
Their non-porous glass surface does not absorb water, which prevents the growth of unhealthy bacteria & fungus. They are easy to clean: simply rinse abrasive surface under running water, avoiding decorated handle.
A gentle anti-bacterial spray can be applied to the abrasive surface to disinfect the file. Finally, let your file dry out on a soft towel before storing it safely in it's case.
When washing or disinfecting your file focus on the abrasive surface and avoid the decorated handle. Avoid exposing files to solvents, harsh disinfectants and high temperatures since the decoration may deteriorate in such conditions.
You may notice a light, white residue covering your file after you file your nails. This is nail dust residue and can be easily removed by rinsing the file under water or wiping the file with a damp towel.
Czech Glass Files can be used on Artificial Nails. We recommend dipping your file in water between filing for best results.
Working with different nail types
While Bona Fide Beauty glass nail files are suited to most nail types, everyone’s nails are different. Some people have thick, strong nails while others may have thin, sensitive nails.
If you find them too rough on your nails, try dipping the file in water between filing to help soften or dull the abrasive surface. Alternative, give yourself a short hand soak to soften the nails. Instead of filing your nails in one go, take it slow: file and shape nails gently in regular short sessions over a few days. With regular, long-term use your nails will strengthen and become less sensitive to the filing experience.
If you find they are too fine grit or gentle for your nails, we recommend using them alongside other nail care tools, such as nail clippers. Use your clippers to remove the bulk of the nail. Follow-up with your BFB Glass Nail File to expertly shape and smooth the nail's edge.
Be patient, give yourself time to adjust to this unique nail care tool.
