Values are important to us. In our products and in the methods we use to produce them. We have been manufacturing in Switzerland for over 60 years. With experienced and skilled employees, many of whom have remained true to our company for years. Very much in the tradition of Swiss precision mechanics, we manufacture precise and elegant products, every detail of which is made to last. All of our manicure implements are made by hand - and, in a final step, tested individually under a magnifying glass. Only products that pass this test receive the “Rubis. Made in Switzerland” seal of quality.
For us, design isn’t just a matter of form. It is our promise that we do everything possible so that our products retain their convincing shape and perfect function for many years to come. And since it hasn’t gone unnoticed that we take this promise seriously, our tweezers and scissors have been honored internationally with numerous renowned awards for their outstanding design. Simple, bold forms are a feature of all Rubis products – embodying the concept of “less is more”.
The glass nail file was designed by Fides Baldesberger.
How to Use
Using glass nail files helps you keep your nails healthy. Rubis glass nail files have a microfine, almost satiny filing surface that is very gentle on your nails. Nails are protected as they are filed, leaving not a trace of a split at the nail edge. Filing your nails with a Rubis glass nail file provides a smoother finish than conventional emery boards or metal nail files. Glass nail files are extremely low maintenance: simply rinse under running water after use. Nail varnish residue is easy to remove with a fine brush and mild detergent. The files can also be disinfected and sterilized without a problem. Their high quality means that they lose none of their original functionality. They will last a lifetime if used carefully. Please remember that these files are made of glass: they may break if dropped. Damaged nail files should not be used.
Tips for perfect finger nails
Soft skin is easier to care for. If you don’t like using a nail bath to soak your nails and don’t have any manicure lotion to hand, the best time to manicure your nails is right after showering.
Brushing helps clean dirty finger nails. But not only that. It also improves blood flow and encourages healthy nail growth. So it’s a good idea to brush your nails now and then. Incidentally, brittle nails are often a consequence of poor diet. If your diet is healthy, your finger nails will be healthy too.
Soft skin feels nice, and this goes for your hands too. Use an exfoliating scrub or a body brush once a week to soften your hands. It really helps.
Cutting is not necessarily best for your cuticles – pushing is better. Only the little pieces of skin that stick out and could cause the cuticle to tear should be cut – don’t forget to use specially designed cuticle scissors. One of the implements you could use to push your cuticles is our special cuticle pusher. And use a little nail oil from time to time – your cuticles will appreciate it.
Nail clippers are primarily intended for toe nails. However, when in doubt, we would advise you to use our special nail scissors to trim your toe nails. They are more precise and gentler on the nails. We would not recommend using clippers on your finger nails, which are more sensitive. Finger nails respond better to gentler treatment with specially curved nail scissors and glass nail files.
Filing is the best thing for your finger nails. And the best nail files are glass files. Using them ensures that the sensitive nail does not become damaged. Glass nail files are gentle enough to avoid any risk of splitting. You should file your nails from the outside toward the middle.
Nails grow. About two to three millimeters a month. Remember to trim your nails before they become too long.
Dry air dries out cuticles too. So don’t forget your cuticles when applying hand cream. The best creams to use are those that are unscented and do not irritate your skin. If you like the natural approach, you could use a rich oil like olive, almond or jojoba instead. Simply apply a little oil and massage gently into the nail, including the nail bed. The best time to moisturize is just before going to bed – the oil can then soak in overnight.
When applying hand cream, why not give your hands a mini-massage as well? Just rub your hands together as if you were giving them a really good wash. Then work the fingers and thumb of your other hand up and down each finger individually. And give your hands a good shake-down at the end.
Between the thumb and index finger are helpful acupressure points. Simply apply a little more pressure there while massaging your hands and you’ll soon see how good it feels
Our glass nail files are made of premium-quality hardened glass. A complex special method is used to bond the filing surface with its microfine glass particles to the outer glass.
