Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files Polymer Clay Project Idea

Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files - Polymer Clay TutorVideo #691: The Swarovski Crystals were so pretty… that I had a difficult time bringing myself to cover them up with cane slices.

In this video I review the Glass Nail Files which the Mont Bleu company recently sent to me from the Czech Republic.

I will also share with you a neat idea for using polymer clay to give your nail files a unique decorative look.

I have seen glass fingernail files covered with polymer clay, and have always wanted to make some for myself. So when the opportunity came up to review these Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files, naturally I was interested.

Well, the files they sent were stunning! Painted in a lovely blue to pink gradient with pretty swirls of Pink and Purple hand decorated genuine Swarovski Crystals. My plan was to originally add polymer clay to several of the sample files. But quite honestly, the Swarovski crystal embellishments were so pretty, I could only bring myself to covering just one of the files… using Polyform’s Sculpey Souffle polymer clay.

Perhaps in the future Mont Bleu will send me some of their plain glass files, so I can do a more in depth step-by-step, polymer clay tutorial. I just don’t want to cover up any more of those beautiful Swarovski Crystals ;-)

The Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files are sold at the Design Glassware website (see direct link just below the video), and are shipped internationally from the Czech Republic. They currently offer free shipping for orders over a certain amount. I am not totally sure to which countries they extend that offer to, but you can find that out by going to their site.

The company graciously offered a coupon code for everyone viewing today’s review video. It will give you a full 20% Discount… which is a great deal since their prices are already quite reasonable!

The Discount coupon code is… VLOG

In the remainder of the video I give tips and tricks for covering any glass nail file with polymer clay… as well as tips for adding your cane slices. Important baking information is also covered, so that you can make beautifully handmade polymer clay glass nail files too!

Do you have any suggestions for videos on tips, techniques or products you would like to learn more about? Let me know in the comments section below!

My goal is to help you to learn quicker and easier ways to bring up the professionalism in your polymer clay art.

    For those interested, Mont Blue sells nail files that are not embellished with crystals, too. Yay!

    Hi Cindy, beautiful nail files so glad you were able to show us this product.
    I ordered some using the 20% off code and it basically takes care of the shipping charges which is a huge help. For the quality, the price is very low which really surprised me. The nice thing about these files is that not only will they make a terrific gift but also will last a lot longer than the traditional files you buy at Wal-mart or drug stores. Mont Bleu is well known for it’s superior quality. I have owned several of their other products.

    Hi Cindy,
    Thanks for the fun tutorial on glass files. What a neat idea! I bought one at a craft show with a plastic design; yours are so much nicer and make great gifts. My one question: Since you tested the files in the oven before applying clay and baking, is it necessary for me to also test them beforehand? Thanks for your help.

  6. Cindy Lietz, 06 September, 2015

    Hi Laurie, if you are buying your Glass Files from Mont Bleu than I wouldn’t worry about testing them yourself, since I am convinced their quality of glass throughout their lines will handle the baking. But if you are buying them anywhere else, I would go ahead and test them just in case.

    Hello, can I purchase from you crystal nail files? Vaga and MontBleu appear to have reviews as being the best and authentic.

    If so where in London are you? Or do I order online

    Thank you for your attention to my request

    Hi Lyn, the link to where you can buy the MontBleu Glass files is just under the video box above. There’s a coupon code there as well (though I am not sure it will still work since this post is 5 years old, but it wouldn’t hurt to try!)
