OPI Crystal File Review

Thursday, February 17, 2011
Hello Reader!
I tricked you a little. I titled this post as a 'review' but it's not really because I couldn't properly use this file.
I love crystal files and last month when I lost my beloved Essie file, I panicked and went out and bought the first file I could find. That ended up being OPI's Crystal File. It was $5ish at CosmoProf.
At first glance, I thought that this file was identical to Essie's. As soon as I pulled out of the protective sleeve, I could tell it was much lighter and thinner than the Essie version. I didn't even get a chance to file my nails- I gently tested the file against one finger (not really a lot of pressure or anything, honest) and it snapped.
I was really disappointed. I used the shards of it, and it did file well (really smooth grit!) but honestly I would NOT recommend this crystal file just because it is just so darn fragile.
Yeah. No thank you. I'll be going back to Essie now.

Do you have a favorite crystal file? Have you tried one yet? (If you haven't, I strongly urge you to).
Product was purchased by me, for my own use.
