I’ve been using Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files since October of 2012 when the company first reached out to me and I’ve been hooked ever since. I actually still have and use the original one I received way back then and it still works like new. I’ve since purchased another one to keep (I misplace things a lot) and a mini one to keep in my purse. Every Sunday I have a routine – file my nails with my Mont Bleu Glass File, Mani Bomb, Cuticle Oil and Hand Cream.

Mont Bleu reached out to me again recently and asked if they could send me a few more products to feature and I was happy to. I was thrilled when the package arrived and it contained a normal glass nail file, a mini glass file and a toe nail file. I was DOUBLY thrilled when I saw they included a second set to give away to one of my readers!

Want to see what I received and what one reader will win? Let’s look!


The large file at the top is perfect for toe nails, the middle is a mini that is perfect to travel with, and the bottom one is a normal sized glass file. All 3 have a beautiful light pink to sky blue gradient with a clear and pink Swarovski crystal pattern on the top. They arrived in black velvet like pouches to protect the files.

The file itself is etched glass. This may have you wondering why that matters. Simple, etched glass lasts longer. A lot of similar files I’ve seen on the market are coated with a fine grit which will wear off over time. As you file it breaks the grit off or wears it down and over time (which is a short time span if you file as much as I do) and becomes unusable.

Since Mont Bleu‘s files are laser etched, it doesn’t wear down or wear off. As I said, I still use my original file from October of 2012 – that’s long lasting and pretty impressive. The only reason I would need to really replace it is if I drop it (and somehow I haven’t done that yet)

Unlike traditional emery boards, crystal nail files can be cleaned and sanitized.  After I use mine, I run them under warm water and let it dry, then pop it back in it’s case. Easy.


The design I received for myself (and to giveaway) is beautiful and I feel some nail art coming on this weekend when I have more time!



How beautiful is that? Not just beautiful but affordable, practical and they WORK.

Want another reason to switch to Mont Bleu? How about the fact that traditional emery boards as well as grit blasted glass files can actually do more damage to nails than you anticipate? A lot of times they have to be used in one direction and can leave a rougher edge on your nail. That can lead to the nail catching and tearing on clothing or other items. usually after filing you need to go over the edge with a buffing block for complete smoothness. Not good! Mont Bleu Glass Files leave a smooth, fine finish and can be used in a back and forth motion.

In nail groups, whenever someone asks for nail file recommendations – I always recommend Mont Bleu. Hands down. You can’t beat it! Yes, initially it’s slightly higher priced than a normal nail file – but the lasting power is cheaper considering you won’t have to replace it time and time again. Have you met someone who hated their Mont Bleu? Yeah, me either!

Mont Bleu has several options for your files as well. You can get them plain, with a solid colored handle, with a gradient handle, with a logo or printed design, or with an assortment of Swarovski Crystal designs.

Price: $9.99 – $12.99 Depending On Design Or Set

  1. I actually have a mini glass nail file, but do not know the brand as I got it as a gift. However, definitely immediately saw the superiority of glass files and won’t go back. I’ve heard great things about Mont Bleu, though.

  2. I read nothing but raves about this brand of glass file. I have an OPI glass file that I love. I won’t use anything but a glass file on my nails.

  3. These are very pretty! I have never used a glass file before…and I read what you said about the rough edges after filing your nails (uggh, I hate that feeling!)…nice to know there is another option. Thank you so much for the giveaway!!

    I get so lazy and find myself reaching for an emery board a lot more often than I should. I just lost my glass file (I was carrying it in my purse…yea, DUH. I know), and even though it was glass, it wasn’t a whole lot more impressive than the board. I really would like to try these out!

  6. I have not tried these files. I have tried other glass files and I wasn’t impressed. These look much nicer though.

  7. I have have not tried Mont Bleu, but have wanted to. I have heard nothing but great things about them.
