Help me design a nail file? Please pick your favourite!

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 25 - 2014

The guys over at Mont Bleu have invited me to take part in a little design competition for their range of luxury crystal nail files.  The eventual winner will see their nail file design incorporated into the Mont Bleu catalogue, they will also receive a whole bunch of newly-designed files to giveaway on their blog, and a mosaic picture from crystals. It’s all about those bragging rights!

I’ve designed three nail file motifs, each of which completely addled my talent-free brain. I’ve kept the backgrounds transparent simply because I preferred the clean look – each time I added a gradient or colour, it all got a bit too busy for my tastes.

I don’t think the designs really need any indepth description, they don’t hold secret meaning… I just played around until I liked what I saw.

None of these designs have been named yet, infact… that’s where you come in…

Please vote for your favourite design (the winner from YOUR votes gets entered into the competition) and if you wish, leave a potential name for the design in the comments.  I will choose one of your suggestions to name the winning design before submitting it to Mont Bleu for consideration by their design team.  All in all, a joint blog/reader effort!

Which nail file design is your favourite?

Mother’s Day: Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 10 - 2011

If there’s one thing I associate with the Czech Republic (other than beer), it’s the country’s long and distinguished history of working with glass.  Czech glass is world renowned for it’s quality and craftsmanship.

I took delivery of a sample nail file a few weeks ago from Mont Bleu, a company based on the outskirts of Prague who produce tempered glass nail files by hand.

It arrived in a substantial leatherette mock-croc gifting box.

The nail file itself is tucked inside, housed in a velvet pouch and arrived with an authenticity card.  All these little extra touches really single a product out as being gift-worthy!

I received the Red Medium Nail File with Swarovski Crystals in a ‘marbles’ design which you can view online here.

It’s a well-made product as one might expect and is comparable to my Leighton Denny file in both size and quality.  I’ve used it daily to give it a thorough wear test and so far, the surface has remained as pristine as the day it arrived.

My one distinction in the quality between them would be that the Mont Bleu file feels ever so slightly “grittier” when filing than the Leighton Denny.  I’m not 100% sure on this and have been wavering and asking everyone who visits to weigh in with an opinion.  It’s divided everyone!

The Mont Bleu files are available in a variety of designs and can be bought online in the UK through their distributor BestCrystalNailFiles.

Priced at £10.99 for a medium size, it’s a lovely gift choice for Mothers everywhere this Mother’s Day.
