Design Glassware by Mont Bleu

For the past year or so I have really taken to looking after my nails properly; treating them, cutting and ensuring the nail edges are neat and tidy. Emery-boards are what many people use to file their nails, but they actually do more damage than good! From time to time I kept hearing that using glass nail files were a lot better for the nails but I never really took much notice. However I was a little curious and started doing a bit of researching and they are infact pretty good (my nails no longer split!). I have seen and purchased a glass nail file which does the job, but lacks design, until Mont Bleu caught my attention.

''Mont Bleu Ltd Company is one of the world leading suppliers of glass nail files. Our glass nail files are made of high quality Czech glass; they are decorated by patterns, or by Swarovski crystals. At present our company is growing, and we became one of the main producers of the accessories decorated with original Swarovski crystals in Europe.''
(Mont Bleu, 2013)

I had never heard of this company but the designs on the products are just beautiful. Not only are they beautiful, but some of them are even covered in Swarovski crystals which are just gorgeous (especially when the light catches the crystals). I have a selection of products which I will briefly blog about today.

Crystal Swarovski nail file 'Comet'* and Crystal Swarovski travel nail file 'Comet Clear Fuschia'*

First impressions of these nails file  . . WOW. The quality of them both is absolutely amazing. They are very sturdy, durable for constant use and are both very elegant in design with swarovski crystals. I opted for two files of varying size because sometimes carrying the normal size nail file is sometimes not practical especially for travelling where the mini file is much more suitable. Both nail files come with its own velvet pouch to protect from damage. The RRP for the ordinary sized nail file is 10,00 € (approximately £8.61) and the travel nail file is 8,00 € (approximately £6.89) which to be honest they are incredibly reasonable for such good quality nail files.

Tweezers 'Black Simple II Purple'*

I have had numerous tweezers and although they do the job ok, some of them I find tend to loose their 'grip' after a while. This sometimes results in you having to redo the area numerous times to ensure you have caught the hair you're trying to pluck. These tweezers from Mont Bleu I found to be really good; they're sharp, and catch hairs really good. Not only that there is a rubber button which gives you a comfortable grip and better eyebrow shaping. And of course the tweezers are etched with crystals for that chic and 'bling' look, without being too tacky. The RRP 15,00 € (approximately £12.92) which may seem a little steep to some, but they are a fab pair of tweezers with extras that many tweezers don't have.

Cube shaped 'Aurora Boreale' Crystal Stud Earrings*

I am usually very particular with my jewellery; majority being 9ct+ gold pieces and that's it! However these earrings caught my attention straight away. The Aurora Boreale cube earrings are 6mm in size and are just absolutely stunning especially in the natural light. The earrings are covered in a hypo allergic metal and are free from harmful metals. I am quite sensitive when it comes to the type of material used to make earrings, but these didn't irritate my ears at all which is a great. The backs of the earrings are very secure with 'clutch' backings. The RRP is 8,00 € (approximately £6.89) which is really reasonable considering how expensive they look.

From the selection of products I have reviewed above, I am very impressed with the quality of Mont Bleu products. They are unique, with a wide variety and are affordable. Mont Bleu are based in Czech Republic, shipping worldwide.
