I have not used another type nail file, since getting this one as a bonus item with a bundle purchase. In addition, OPI is the best crystal nail file I have found. The others I have tried, since, do not have a good surface area, nor are they 2 sided. Of course it will break if you drop it, it is glass after all; I keep mine in the tube. It would be nice if the tube were a bit sturdier or better looking; but my original tube (and file) has lasted for 6 years and is still going strong. I have since purchased 3 more: upstairs, downstairs, work, purse. Greatest thing since sliced bread, flush toilets, air conditioning, tampons...you get the idea.
The glass nail file is gorgeous. It worked well, smooth filing, no ragged edges. However, it is fragile. After only having it a couple of weeks, I dropped it and it broke in half, right at the point where the file abuts the handle. It should be manufactured to withstand everyday impacts.

I only had wished I bought this sooner. It is also a good gift for someone who enjoys giving themselves a manicures

This is the best nail file I have found. It does not leave jagged edges.

I have a GERMANIKURE crystal nail file, but it doesn't compare to the O.P.I one. I use it after I clip my nails so they are not jagged and the possibly of them getting caught or torn, it leaves them smooth and does a great job.

So far this is working incredibly well. I am wondering how long it can last, but right now I love how quick and easy it is to shape my nails. The feel of it takes a little getting used to, but it is actually so much better than the big files I have been using. I try to only use it while sitting on the couch or something as I have heard that it will shatter if dropped on tile or granite. I will be buying more of them to give as gifts!

This is a good nail file. My only issues is when I'm filing I get the sensation of nails-on-a-chalkboard. My fault for not thinking about this when purchasing. Overall this is a good product and would recommend despite my own personal issue lol.

this file is sturdy and reliable, and remains sharp and great for shaping both natural and polygel nails. keep the case it comes in for storage to be extra careful, because it will break if dropped (it is crystal after all). if you clean it after use and store it to prevent drops, you will have an always sharp, always ready file to use for whatever nail needs you have.

I saw a video describing how your nails gets one's you used a regular file compare with the cristal file and I really love it
SeriphNox from Vermont
Yes, it is slightly costly, but think about how many less files you'll need for the rest of your life. I hands down love mine. It blew me away with how efficiently and quickly it files my fingernails. I really got sick of how quickly I go through standard files, got fed up, and bought this. Soooooo worth it. I keep mine in my purse in the little tube it came in for sanitary reasons. Just buy it, please.

DO NOT DROP THIS FILE. IT WILL SHATTER. I am rebuying because this is the best file for my nails.

Really surprised with how well this nail file performs. It's the best I've ever owned and gets the job done in less time with less effort.

I've tried different nail filers and none of them were as good as this. Opi's Crystal nail file gets the job done in fewer strokes and creates a smooth edge on my nails. Almost like it's shaping and budding the edges in one stroke. I love it so much. It's made the job much easier!

No need for those cheap nail files that feel like sandpaper & need to be tossed cause the go dull, this is truly the only file you'll ever need! Files my nails to perfection SO quickly!
Ily from Los Angeles, CA
I love this file. My nails are thin and tend to get ragged with most files. This one left my natural nails so smooth and perfect, and worked great for shaping acrylics as well.
It is fragile because glass, duh, but I have already dropped it and it survived, so it's sturdier than my last one!

I bought this on a lark, not expecting it to be much different from paper emery boards. But it is different -- files my nails much smoother and faster. It can break (because glass, duh) so you have to be a little careful with it, but it's still pretty durable. I rinse it off, let it air dry and store it in the plastic container.

I have always struggled with achieving even results while filing my nails. emery boards left them with a chewed up appearance, uneven and rough. I've used this just once so far and I'm very pleased. I am storing it in it's original packaging to prevent breakage.
Katie Cutie from Metairie, LA
I love this nail file. It makes filing my nails a pleasure. So far, it has never dulled. It files nails quickly and leaves them smooth, not to mention it is very pretty & feels luxurious to use. I was surprised by the size; it is smaller than I expected. You could easily carry it in your purse, although I understand that crystal nail files are fragile.
NaNa from Northport
My nails are very weak, thin, fragile recovering from gel and acrylics artificial nails.
Angie from Northern Cali
I just got into taking care of my nails and cuticles. I got this on a recommendation from a friend of mine and after weeks of having this, I have to say that I love it. I am never going back from crystal files after this one. I was nervous it would break or I would drop it based some of the reviews here, but I've been storing/keeping it in the packaging it arrived in and my file has been in great condition since I got it in the mail. I live in a house with mainly marble tile floors and am clumsy but haven't dropped this baby.
I definitely recommend this and doubly recommend storing it in the original packaging tube when not in use.
