I feel like Ruby Stones have gotten harder and harder to find. The last 3 Sally’s beauty Supply stores I have been to no longer carry the item.; even thought it is still available on their website .
I had two Ruby Stone nail files, but one ran away and the other broke!
I didn’t even know they could be broken, but the file met a fatal fall from off my kitchen counter and never came back to life. I still use it, but it is much more difficult than normal.
I tried replacing Ruby Stone with another crystal/glass file found at Sally’s ASP Crystal File. The file looks very nice & is comfortable to hold, but is of a lesser quality than the Ruby Stone.
The ASP Crystal file was dull after just a few uses and wore out quickly like many glass files. I even had to return it to store because the texture just rubbed off with me touching it! Essentially this file is a waste of money.
No substituting the original.
