Being selfish about wanting to go to the shops I wanted to go to and see the museums that I wanted to go to, I ventured out by myself on a cold winters day. Amsterdam was very easy to walk around.

I've heard so much about Koh nail polish and a few years ago I was obsessed about getting some (this was of course when I still lived in America). When I went into Douglas, the Koh display was so dusty and not cleaned and it looked as cheap as some of the drugstore displays. I didn't get any polishes. They were beautiful, but it just wasn't worth the hefty price tag.
Crystal Nail File from Koh
Still very expensive at 27 euros, but I realised that it is something that I will use constantly that isn't a tacky souvenirs that every tourist gets. The quality the crystal file is amazing. It is heavy, and beautifully made; however, it makes an awful noise on my nails that reminds me of when someone runs their nails on a chalkboard. The key is to file slowly and take your time. For that reason, I give this a 7 out of 10. I didn't realise that a crystal nail file would make that noise on my nails. If I would have known, I wouldn't have purchased this, but at least it's a beautiful item for me to have and use and will always remind me of my trip to Amsterdam.
