Rated 5 out of 5 by bokchoy best nail file ever
this is my second nail file. I accidently dropped my last one on a tile floor & it broke. I have hade it for several years. I love the file it works perfect on your nails.

I have owned this nail file for many years and will never be without it. I have purchased other brands but never found another file that I like as well as this crystal file. It leaves my nails smooth and without rough edges. These files will break if you drop them but are so worth the price. I use this file along with the Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat and the Perfect Formula Top Coat and love how strong my nails are and how they look. Even though I use this file on my toe nails, I would love a larger file for my toe nails from Perfect Formula.

I really like this nail file (but I hate the Perfect Formula gel coat). Helps keep my peeling nails smooth.
Rated 5 out of 5 by StillWishesOnStars I sought this brand out ... luv it!
I read the other two negative reviews, but I am so very happy with this 'Perfect Formula' Crystal Nail file that I sought it out and was apprehensive to try the other brands, even though they were highly rated. I had this file for at least two years (maybe three?) when I foolishly broke it (my bad! not intended to open stubborn packages from the Q - LOL!) I first purchased a file ($8) at a beauty store ... omg ... it was abrasive. I did my nails with it that night and lost 1/2 my nail length!! Well, after that experience and reading some of the reviews for other files here on Q ... I came to the conclusion that my nails must be on the thin side and I *need* a crystal file like the one I broke because my nails cannot handle a less abrasive file. This file is sooo smooth and almost glass-like ... it does a beautiful job on my thinner, more delicate nails. If you have thicker nails, I would guess this file may not be the one for you and to try one of the other highly-rated ones that have more grit to them. But if you're like me with thinner nails that file-down really easily, this file has your name on it. It does come with a plastic 'cover' and only one side is for filing ... but before I foolishly broke my old one, I had it for years and it was going strong! And if you need a good nail strengthener, try one of the 'Perfect Formula' nail products (A12826 or A80642.) (btw ... I am using the Rev. file for my tootsies since it's so abrasive!) Hope this review helps someone with thin nails who needs a gentle crystal file ... this is the keeper! : )

I purchased this item a couple years ago and just spotted it while looking to purchase a second set of 3 crystal nail files I bought sometime this last year (H13914-Mark V Set of 3 Colored Crystal Nail Files) because they worked so well. This item however is what came up instead and I recognized immediately as the file I just threw out because it just doesn't work. I would file and file and nothing seems to happen. It's only abrasive on one side as well and a little too thick to work around corners too. I'll wait until QVC brings back the Mark V set of 3 - they are fantastic.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Grandma of 4 Not what I expected
I bought a set of three crystal files before from QVC and I love them. I broke my 5 1/2 inch one and needed to replace it. I thought it was a bit pricey, but I purchased it. It came today. It is only textured on one side - the other side is perfectly smooth - not like the ones I have! Cheap plastic case, not a nice velvet one.
Bottom line, it is going back. Not worth the $12.00 + Nah, I wouldn't recommend it.
