Keep your nails in tip-top shape with these reusable, professional grade glass nail files by Base Coat.
Glass nail files are better for your nails and better for the environment! Glass files (sometimes called crystal files) seal the keratin layers together at the edge of the nail, leaving a thicker edge and preventing peeling and chipping. They also last much longer than traditional files. They don’t shred or wear down as quickly which prevents waste and saves you money in the long run.
About the maker
When Tran Wills, Base Coat Founder, was pregnant with her fourth child, she swung by her local salon for a pedicure. While waiting for her treatment, she became nauseous from the harsh chemicals and her nose started bleeding. She immediately walked out, reflecting on everything that was wrong with the nail industry.
Having grown up in nail salons, she witnessed her own family working in conditions that were hazardous to their health, while also being unfairly compensated. She understood that her family’s experience wasn’t unique—it was the industry standard.
In her gut, Tran knew it was time for a better option: a salon that supported the health and well-being of everyone, customers and staff alike.
That’s why in 2013 she founded Base Coat, the first non-toxic nail salon in Denver and one of only a few in the entire country.
