Iridesi “Scarlet Edition” Etched Glass Fine Grit Nail Files, Set of 2

 

I do my own nails on a semi-regular basis, because it’s one of those little things I can do for myself that doesn’t take a lot of time, and I like taking care of myself from time to time. Part of any good at-home manicure is nail maintenance, and part of good nail maintenance is using good tools, like these nifty Iridesi Etched Glas Nail Files. I think I’ve found the new gold standard in nail files!

Different from normal abrasive file sticks, with glued on substances like aluminum oxide, these Iridesi files are one solid piece of acid-etched glass with no glued-on abrasives, and better than a harsh metal file that can leave your nails rough. These Iridesi files will never need to be replaced (unless I’m not careful with them) and will last for many, many years. They’re hypoallergenic and so incredibly easy to keep clean as well, just brush the nail dust off and dip them in rubbing alcohol and you’re as good as new! There’s so many benefits to these, with the only drawback being that because they are glass, you need to handle them with a little bit more care than the usual disposable ones. That means no dropping them on hard surfaces, or just tossing them in your purse and going. But Iridesi thought ahead and anticipated a gal’s need to be on the move and provided you with sturdy plastic cases that keep the nail files (and your purse’s contents as well!) safe from harm. So, they’re function, beautiful, and when you consider that they’ll outlive traditional files by a number of years, so affordable I can’t see any reason to not pick up a set!

Sometimes things only seem pricier at first, until you do some math and realize that a file that never gets dull is better than buying and replacing nail files all the time. And, there’ really no harm in a functional tool looking fabulous too, and Iridesi made sure their files look like a million bucks while keeping your nails looking like a million bucks themselves! I’m sold on etched glass nail files, and I think when you try them you will be too!

HouseParty: TLC Love, Lust or Run Premiere Party #LoveLustRunParty

 

IMAG2207

 

The new year means new shows and on January 23rd, we started off with the Premiere Party for TLC’s new show, Love, Lust or Run. The show is hosted by Stacy London and as always, she is helping someone from a fashion disaster, or better described like someone who is a repeat offender and commits a fashion felony on an everyday basis! Stacy London revamps a person in each episode, and this is not just to pick a better cut of jeans, this is a top to bottom re-do. Make-up, hair, shoes, you name it…..Stacy fixes it.

TLC provided all the fixin’s to get us started and celebrating Love, Lust or Run, because you can’t talk about others when you are not shining yourself. The party kit included:

  • Love, Lust or Run paddles
  • Love, Lust or Run large handheld mirror
  • Love, Lust or Run Nail Polishes in a gorgeous silver color
  • Love, Lust or Run Nail files and buffers
  • Love, Lust or Run Hair Make-up remover
  • Love, Lust or Run Hair bands

Of course gamming it up takes energy and time, so I made little finger cookies with the “TLC” logo. I figured we’d party with homemade alfajores, which I cut into heart shapes, filled with dulce de leche and dusted with unsweetened coconut. Hey, we are still dieting over here! Alfajores are cookies that are traditional to Spain and resemble a shortbread in both taste and texture.

TLC’s Love, Lust or Run party was very fun to watch and keeps us in line. Even though none of us suffer as badly as some of the guests on the show, it sure opened the door to point out certain fashion faux pas! Tune in on Fridays at 9:00 PM (CST) and have a few laughs, plus with Stacy London, you always learn a thing or two with every episode!
