As I already wrote I wanted to do gifts for my girls – personalized nail files with their initials, so I tried to buy some on ebay.

Item: two violet (not my favorite color) glass nail files with cases. The texture is not really good, these tend to brush off quite fast also they are too ruff on the nails, so it its a miss. I couldn’t use them as gifts – so I bought better ones locally. Also why put that barcode on the case? looks horrible and also not fit for a gift. I use one in one of my purses, just because I have it extra and it does the job in extreme situations, but I still dislike the texture.
Its next to the one I ought locally in the shop, you might see that the orange one is much smoother and you just have to trust me that is also better.
Ebay vs. Reality
Ebay gets one cookie for the fact that I still can use it for the purpose even though I prefer not to. Reality strikes with ugly color, misplaced barcode (that you cant take off easily, I tried – you end up with sticky place), texture and the fact I couldn’t use it as intended and bought for.
