This GERmanikure crystal glass pedicure bar is handcrafted in the Czech Republic from 5mm thick Bohemian glass that is specially formulated and tempered against breaking. Unlike imitation glass tools where the texture may eventually scrape or even peel off like a sticker, the texture on this pedicure bar is chemically etched directly into the block of thick glass and is impossible to wear off. Chemical etching gently removes a portion of the surface of the glass, leaving behind random, yet evenly placed rounded peaks. As a result, this file can actually be used either wet or dry, in both directions.
Philosophy behind GERmanikure glass nail files
Buying crystal glass nail files and spotting fakes
One side of the foot bar is formed in waves and ripples to add to the coarseness and more easily remove stubborn calluses. The opposite side is etched as well to make a fine flat filing surface providing an excellent smoothing action for finishing. This crystal glass pedicure bar isn’t just for smoothing heels and removing calluses. The etched flat side makes it a good choice for filing and finishing toenails as well. The etched texture reduces the risk of nail bed cracking and delamination. Don’t sand those nails, seal them.
Hygienic and Sterilizable
Glass itself has natural antibacterial/anti-fungal qualities, cleans up easily with simple soap and water, and is durable enough to hold up to a chemical bath or steam sterilizer (up to 170 degrees Celsius). Unlike cheaper metal and glass pedicure tools there are no microscopic crevices and cracks in the surface of this crystal glass file that will harbor fungus, bacteria, or dead skin particles.
Use Wet or Dry
The GERmanikure glass pedicure bar works well both wet and dry, as well as does a fantastic job of sealing and shaping natural nails, SNS, and acrylics. Whatever callus you want to remove and smooth, or type of nail you want to file, these glass files are strong and durable enough to do the job.
Unlike “lemon zester” type pedicure files that gouge and dig into the callused skin surface, the crystal glass pedicure bar gently removes dead skin cells layer by layer, without gouging. This minimizes the risk of damage to the living tissue underneath the callus. After filing with a crystal glass pedicure bar and examined at many times magnification, the freshly filed surface is smooth and clean; calluses that are filed with a “lemon zester” type surface have visible gouge lines and frayed bits of tissue.
Tough and Durable
GERmanikure crystal glass pedicure bars aren’t as fragile as you might think. These callus files are crafted of 5mm thick authentic Bohemian glass which is chemically hardened and tempered to resist breaking. This special glass treatment not only enhances the clarity and sparkle of the glass, but also adds resiliency. While breakage is possible with all glass, dropping a GERmanikure crystal glass pedicure bar from a short distance (such as counter height to floor) will, in most cases, not break it.
Leather Protective Case
Even though this thick bohemian glass pedicure bar is crafted of the finest hardened Czech glass and designed to last for decades, GERmanikure goes a step further. This file comes complete with a custom fitted leather sleeve to provide additional protection. Leather is naturally cushioning and dehumidifying. The case will prevent damage to the file when it is not in use as well as additional shock absorption in case the file is accidentally dropped when not in use.
Optional Vegan Protective Case
Due to popular request for animal-friendly vegan options, this pedicure bar may optionally come with a custom fitted vegan pvc protective sleeve. Specify vegan case in the comment field during checkout (step 4). If no indication is received, your pedicure bar will ship with a leather case.
