How do you choose the best electric nail drill for you? If you’re curious about the answer to this question, keep reading to learn everything you need to know to choose the right one.
Here is the checklist:
1. Rotational speed
If you plan to use the drill primarily on natural nails, a model up to 15,000 RPM is usually sufficient. However, if you plan to use it for acrylic nails or natural and acrylic nails, go for a drill that can handle at least 25,000 RPM.
2. Light handpiece
If it’s too heavy, you won’t be able to work quickly and you won’t feel comfortable. Hands and wrists will be sore after a long day’s work with such a handpiece.
3.Choose a low vibration nail machine
One of the most important factors to look for when choosing a nail machine is its vibration power. The lower their vibration,the less damage to the client’s nails. Moreover, vibration can reduce customer satisfaction.
4.Corded or cordless
A corded model will always be plugged in so it won’t stop in the middle of the manicure, whereas a cordless model (portable nail drill) might only last for an hour. Batteries also make them more expensive and heavier to hold, which can impact your comfort level while holding the device.
5. Forward/backward mode
Doing top-ups and manicures is going to mean having to work both forwards and backwards. This allows you to work in a variety of different directions without having to hold your hand in really twisted positions.
