Mont Bleu Designer Glassware| File Your Nails in Style!

Howdy Divas & Gents!

I know it has been quite a while but I received mail all of the way from Czech Republic and had to share it with you! I received two custom glass nail files, custom tweezers and Swarovski element studded earrings which I'm delighted to blog to you about! Nail files are essential to every woman whether you have prefer long or short chic nails. I've been using these glass nail files for about a month now and I have so many positive things to say about them.

Mont Bleu creates all types of design glassware and is the only place where you can buy genuine glass nail files. They also carry compact mirrors, jewelry, key rings, and all types of personalized gifts. All of the original Czech glass nail files are made of genuine tempered glass and come in a dozen colors, styles, sizes, and designs. I couldn't even name all of the various types of variety that they create. I was amazed when I looked at the website and you will be amazed as well!

So nicely crafted :)

The first file I received is a red travel sized classic glass nail file. It is made of hardened glass and works very well. I've found that glass files are much more gentle on the nail and provide a very smooth finish whereas my regular file sometimes leaves snags and tears causing my nails to get brittle. I highly recommend having a file of this type in your nail collection.

I love it! 

The next file provides the same function except it comes from their Crystal Line and has BLING on it! I absolutely love bling and adornments so this was right up my alley. It is one of their bestsellers and is adorned in genuine Swarovski crystals.

Look at that bling shining! 

They were also kind enough to include green Swarovski crystal tweezers which are made out of high quality stainless steel and have slanted tips which makes it easier to pluck those stray hairs! Check out the bling on it!

Lastly, they included a dainty pair of Swarovski crystal element studded earrings which I can't wait to rock!

The Packaging
I can't end this review without talking about the packaging. Everything came in a nice sturdy, white box and the glass nail files and tweezers were in black pouches and also wrapped extremely well in bubble wrap ensuring that everything arrived securely. They even included some literature about the company which always adds a nice touch!
Part of the Packaging --so nicely secured! 

Mont Bleu Literature that came in package!

Also, check them out on their website and buy a glass nail file of your own!

I definitely recommend these glass nail files. They are very durable and provide many uses such as manicures, pedicures, and removing hard/dead skin. They are also very healthy for the nail and their polishing surface has a lifelong guarantee and hygienic features. Last, but not least, they provide awesome and unique gifts for those you love!

Disclaimer: These products were sent to me for review, and I absolutely love them! These are my honest opinions.

My DermStore Shopping Experience!

Hello Divas & Gents,

Top of the day to you! I've been meaning to write this blog for a few weeks now but I wanted to make sure to have some great pictures for you. As some of you may know, I won a $100 gift certificate from DermStore! This Facebook giveaway was sponsored by a great blogger community that I am a part of called iFabbo. Make sure and check them out if you haven't already. They have tons of great tips for bloggers and it is a great way to meet other bloggers :-) Dinah from iFabbo has been anxious to hear about my experience so hopefully she tunes in!

For those of you who are not familiar with DermStore, they carry a wide variety of dermatologist recommended makeup, beauty, and skin care products. They have tons of brands on their website and it took me a long time to make up my mind! The prices are a bit steep but you should expect that when you are getting top of the line products, and I definitely don't mind if has to do with my face (particularly tools for my face). They have "more ways to shop" for indecisive people such as myself. This section of the website is broken up into deals, new arrivals, award winners, shopper's choice, top 10 lists, and more! I really appreciate that particular tool because it helped to narrow down my choices. Not only that but they have weekly deals and you get 10% off of items that you add to your favorites list. If you carefully play everything out, you can get the most bang for your buck!

Now let's cut to the chase and see what I got! I tried to get a wide variety of products so that I could show you the range of products that they carry. You can also view my YouTube Video where I unbox all of the products!

Nails - Essie Spring Collection 2012
These colors are perfect for spring! Nice pastel colors and then a few pops of color. I've already tried Ole Caliente and got tons of compliments. I'll let you know what I think of the rest of them :-)

Packaging -- Really Cute Color Cube!
Packaging + Polishes

Teeth - SuperSmile Whitening Toothpaste Set
So far, I've only tried out a couple of flavors and I definitely feel like my teeth get the extra polish without the harsh chemicals. This is a product that I would have to use continually to give you an accurate review. So far, so good!

Skin/Face - iSkin intelligent Microdermabrasion System
I'm really excited to use this tool! I have a Clarisonic which I LOVE and ADORE but I just wanted that added edge. I think this tool will really aid in the occasional buffing that I need.

Tips & Toes - Burt's Bees Tips & Toes Kit
I absolutely love Burt's Bees skincare products so I figured this would be the perfect chance to try their  hand and foot products! I have tried the Lip Balm before and it is very soothing. I will be divulging in the creams very soon!

Face - Beauty Blender (Pack of 2)
Last but not least, is the BEAUTY BLENDER!!! Everyone always talks about how great this is for applying foundation so I had to finally get it! I got the pack of 2 so that I can have a back up (just in case I fall in love with it too ;)) I can't wait to try this out! 

I hope you all enjoyed my mini DermStore haul! Let me know if you want any in-depth reviews on anything that I've shown. Also, check out the site and let me know what you think of it! Have you shopped at DermStore before?
