Knife-Like Nail Files

NCLA's 'Femme Fatale' Glass Nail File is Branded as a "Secret Weapon"

— September 2, 2017 — Fashion
There are plenty of glass nail files on the market to choose from that are decorated with eye-catching designs, but NCLA's 'Femme Fatale' sets itself apart with a weaponry-inspired design.

The glass nail file boasts an illustrative detail that depicts a simple line drawing of a knife, making it look as though one is wickedly sharpening one's nails on a blade. As such, the branding for the nail care product is touted as a "secret weapon for killer nails."

Glass nail files set themselves apart from others because they are long-lasting, help to prevent nail splits, plus they are washable and may easily be disinfected after use. The dynamic nail file designs from NCLA are offered in both red and black shades to suit one's color preference.

3. Color Preference Customization - Customizable nail file designs in various color options allow consumers to personalize their nail care routine, representing a growth opportunity for brands to meet individual preferences.
Industry Implications

3. Manufacturing and Design - Manufacturing and design industries have the opportunity to collaborate with nail care brands to create new and improved glass nail file materials, designs, and customization options, driving innovation in this niche market.
