The use of grained nail files

In beauty salons and nail salons and others, we find a certain type of files called grain files. This type of professional nail files is available in several models with grains of different sizes to meet all needs and adapt to the structure of clients’ nails. The grit for this type of file varies between 80 and 240 and there are even double-grit files.

Nail file 80 or 100

Very rough, 80 or 100 grits are mainly used to file gel, acrylic or resin nail coverings, or to shape them to the extent that they are more or less thick. The 80 grit is mainly used to file the surface of the nail to remove false nails while the 100 grit is used to file the overlaps during application to make the nail smooth and perfect its shape.

Nail file 150 or 180

Moderately rough, 150 or 180 grit is mainly used for filing toenails and to make coverings more transparent. Natural nails can also be filed with this type of grit if they are thick, otherwise 240 grit is most recommended for natural nails.

Nail file 240

Among the grit nail files, those with a 240 grit are the softest and perfect for contouring natural nails or for the top of the nail to finish a covering. By proceeding in this way, it will then make the covering much more transparent thanks to the removal of the traces left by filing with rougher grains.
