Beauty Bargain Alert: Glass Nail files at Big Lots

This week we made a stop at Big Lots.  I enjoy the adventure of shopping there because you just never know what you might find!

I have wanted to get my hands on a glass nail file after I heard that they are better for your nails.  How are they better?  They create a nice smooth edge to the nail without the pulling or snagging that weakens the nail.  My nails are pretty hard, but once they get a bit passed my finger, they tend to rip and snag very easily and it drives me nuts!

This package was labeled “Trendy Tools” and came with two glass nail files in different colors.  Both have a protective plastic cover.

I found these in the makeup/cosmetics section.  And the best part??

The price!

Only $2.80 for TWO!!  Cant’ beat that!!

I’ve already used these on my nails and I have to say that I can definitely tell a difference.  My nails feel much smoother along the edge.  I don’t think I will ever be a long nail kinda gal, but I’m really hoping that this will help keep my nails from ripping and snagging as they grow.

Each Big Lots location seems to have slightly different things in stock, so I’m not sure if you will find these in your area.  But if you’re like me and enjoy the thrill of the hunt, it’s worth a stop to look.  🙂

Happy shopping!


Beauty Bargain Alert! Cos Bar Tweezers at Target!


A good set of tweezers are always good to have around.

I wanted to let everyone know about the great deal I found at Target yesterday!  I found these Green Leopard Cos Bar Tweezers on clearance yesterday at Target!

These tweezers are a good size, not at all flimsy.   They have a very nice slant edge tip that does a great job of grabbing stray hairs.

The green leopard print is fun and will make them easy to find in my drawer!

The retail price of these is only $4.00 – a great price for a great set of tweezers.  But the clearance price was only $2.80!

I found these on an end cap in the Baby Department of Target that had a lot of various clearance items on it, including other items from the Cos Bar Collection.

Clearance items and prices can vary a lot by region, so I’m not sure if these will be at your local Target, but if you’re in the market for a new set of tweezers it doesn’t hurt to check!

What is your most recent beauty bargain??
