Rated 5 out of 5 by amkap Great for Delicate Nails
I have thin, peeling nails, but thanks to T.I.P.S. nail file, I am able to file my nails & not have the splitting nails. The file leaves my nails smooth....... Love this nail file. I could never use any other nail file, because my nails would keep splitting. With this file along with their nail conditioner, I am able to have healthy nails. In my younger years, my nails would break & chip & it looked like I bit my nails. But with T.I.P.S., I have beautiful nails in my golden years. It's never too late to start treating your nails & bring them back to healthy looking nails. The file last for years, but you need to replace them periodically, like you need to replace any other nail file.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lassie Ramp up time, but it works
This is not your regular fingernail file, it is just better. Yes, there is some ramp up time to learn what area of the file does what, but once you get the hang of it, you will want one in every room. I love using the tip for the underside of my nails to clean out all the filings and to smooth the underside of my nail. The inside is my favorite. My nails always need smoothing on the top and sides. If you take the time to learn how to use it, you will love it. One tip from the ladies at TIPS - always clip your nails, never file them down, clip them to the length your want. Then use the file to create the perfect look.

Just seems like too much of a hassle to try and remember the instructions just to file a
fingernail. I'll stick with regular nail files that do an adequate job.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Suzy-O Awesome functional unique effective
Genius design. No better file on the market. Works every time. Love these!

I got these quite some time ago and put one in my car and one in the manicure kit. When I go to use them I can't remember what each of the many surfaces is supposed to accomplish and just take a guess, which doesn't seem to accomplish much. They don't seem to do much except smooth a little no matter which surface I use. I would not recommend these as a gift unless the gift givee has them on their wish list for some reason.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Big T and Lil S Difficult to use
Too many instructions, use this side for this and that side for that... Blah blah blah, I'm way to busy to get out the instruction booklet every time I need to file a nail. Back these go. A waste of money and time.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Catlady555 Great nail files
My nails are usually in terrible condition. They break, they won't grow and my cuticles are just as bad. I have been using these nail files off-and-on for several years. When I remember to use them, my nails are nicely shaped and actually start to grow. I just have to remember to take care of my cuticles!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rooster89 These work great.
They may look different but they work well. Not too rough or hard to use.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Tretter dont last
Likeked at first but they quickly lost theit finish, making them useless.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ElsieM Wouldn't be without this file
I have been using this file for years. I have very fragile, soft, peeling and brittle nails. I have tried just about every nail file on the market and end up with ragged edges no matter how carefully I trim and file. Once I started using the TIPS contour files I definitely saw a difference. The rounded tips fit perfectly under my nail tips and removes the ragged leftovers from filing. I especially like having the ability to run the large end over the top of my nail and take off roughness without thinning my nail tips.
The contour shape makes it easy to hold and file rather then trying to hold a long file. I have severe arthritis and the file fits over my index finger making it so easy to file and shape my nails along the side of the file.
I would only like the files to last longer. I use them until there isn't an area left to file anymore and then order another set.
Rated 5 out of 5 by annnacat I recommend these to everyone!!!!!
I take lots of medication and it really impacts my nails. When I can't take proper care of them they break and scratch me in my sleep. Even if all I can do is trim them I use these to shape them and smooth the tips. I plan to buy a second set of 2 sometime in the future so I can have them everywhere I need them.
One thing I think needs to be emphasized. These are for shaping and smoothing not filing down length, and what they do they do better than anything else I have tried and I have tried everything. I can't afford the TIPS all the time but these last.
