Just returned it!

By Sun Lover

from Toronto

Silver Reviewer

I just received this new file today and it's already in the mail being returned!!! I have one from years ago that works fine but I wanted a back-up - the new one is so smooth it doesn't file at all! Is anyone checking these - if so quality control people should be fired!!! WHAT A WASTE OF TIME & MONEY.


Just an ok file

By Acadia

from Winnipeg (Manitoba)

Silver Reviewer

I have 2 of these files, both were part of kits that I had bought years and years ago. The file feels awkward to use and it's not great for shaping your nail. I still use an emery board and use this file to clean things up when I'm done.

What I do like about this file is the top of the narrow end for getting rid of the rough spots under the nail after filing, and the uncerneath of the wide end for smoothing the rough edges on the tip of the nail.

The rest of the file is really pointless.


Great nail file

This is my second file I have purchased from TIPS.
It is great.

I purchased this file years ago and loved it . I am a little disappointed with the new file because it doesn't seem to be as nice as my old file. The new file is to smooth and takes twice as long to shape my nails.

Quality Varies

By Debbie

from Halifax, Nova Scotia

I have purchased three files over the years. The first two seem to be worn out because they do not work as well as the third one I purchased which seems to be rougher and actually files the nail. I love the concept and if I could get another one like the last one I purchased I would definitely order more to give as gifts or to keep in several different places (home, work, car, etc.). If you can get a good one, I would definitely recommend it.

I was waiting so long to receive this file but to my surprise got absolutely different product which I did not order. I don't know if people from TSC are reading the reviews (they should but I doubt) but I should say customer service definitely went down

Best Nail File!

By Jinx

from Toronto, ON

Gold Reviewer

Bought this about 6 years ago and loved it so much that I got another one for my mum who loves it also.

I like the fact that you can file above and below the nail so there are no sharp edges and grooves to cause snagging or chipping of the nail. Plus it smoothen out the ridges on top of my nail. I like the fact that it is very gentle... The oil is fabulous too, but that's another product! :)

Wow!! Wow!!!

By Marnie


Top 10 Reviewer

I thought this was a not so great nail file until I saw Karen telling us how to use it!!
Now that I know how to use it, I am so glad because it is the best thing for rough edged nails or a nail with a ragged edge. I just smooth my nail against the file and because the file has such a gentle surface, it smooths out my nail without whittling down the length.
As Karen described there are two different ways to hold your nail against the file for round or square shaped nails--once I got the hang of it, it does do a fantastic job!!
This file is not made of heavy metal-and once I got used to the concept of it, I feel it is easy to handle and one of those must have beauty tools!

Not sure

By Sheila

from Ottawa

All Star Reviewer

I love Tips for nails especially the polish remover not crazy about the nail polish colors. But this file, I do not like it. I bought this file a while back and it sits in my bathroom cabinet, unused. It doesn't do a good job filing my nails at all and I find it cumbersome. Maybe I'm not using it right but I don't think so. I watched the host each time she was on TSC to see her demo to make sure that I am using it properly, but it still does not work for me. I really don't want to give this a bad rating because it may be just me knowing how to use the product.


I like it



All Star Reviewer

I like it as = super "tool" working with precision.
