Splish Splash...

Your files need a bath.

Have you notice your crystal nail file is not filing like it used to? Or what if it starts to look like this:
Czech crystal nail file

...then, it's time to give them a little tender love and care. It's pretty easy to get a file into a "like new" state.

Step 1: Moisten the nail file.
Get wet.

Step 2: Dip an old toothbrush in some soap and lather up your file.
Lather
Step 3: Rinse.
Rinse


Step 4: Admire your handy work.
Beauuutiful!
Step 5: Pat dry with a towel OR pat file with a cotton ball soaked with acetone to completely remove colored polish residue embedded in the nail file.

Ta da!
Did I just make a really simple procedure long and drawn out? I'm a visual learner, so sue me. Follow these steps and your nail file will be rejuvenated and your nails will file/feel better!

Note: If your nail file does not file very well even after this procedure, it is possible it is of lower quality and standard, i.e. made in China. To make sure it is of the highest quality, make sure it is made in the Czech Republic. Click here for a related post on crystal nail files.
