Is it time to ditch your emery board? I have and here’s why!
Firstly you are unable to sanitise an emery board and should dispose after each use to avoid fungal or nail infections – they then become a single use product that cannot be recycled due to the glue they use.
Secondly they are extremely harsh causing damage by ripping and tearing the tips of your nails.
The Lavinia sandstone nail file is handmade using 100% natural Orsa sandstone from Sweden. The unique stone is is over 360 million years old.
The natural grain is fine but effective making it a perfect material to file nails without causing damage. It’s also gentle enough to use on cuticles and to smooth any grooves on your nails.
Comes housed in a cute cork pouch easy for you to store in your handbag.
If you are looking at eliminating plastic from your bathroom, Lavinia and Toockies Fairtrade is a great brand to start your swaps!
