How Do Nail Files Work?
Nail files are made of cardboard, metal and even glass and feature a coarse surface. The coarseness of the file varies, from fine-grit surfaces that can trim and shape natural nails to coarser nail files that are best used on artificial nails and tips. When used on the tip of your nail, these nail files allow you to shave off length and create a defined nail shape. These nail implements
are the perfect complement to your nail clippers, allowing you to clean up your nails after trimming them.
Choose from a variety of nail file styles and features and find the right one for your nails. Durable salon-quality nail files can be reused. These two-sided boards feature two options for filing your nails: a heavy duty surface and a medium surface. Try the heavy, coarse surface to smooth and perfect artificial nails
and tips. Standard emery boards feature a coarse side for shaping your nails and a finer side for smoothing them.
You can also find metal nail files, which your favorite salon might use as well. These files feature a curved surface, which makes it simple to shape, smooth, and finish your nails. A nail buffer is a four-sided file featuring four different levels of grit. One side can file, one can smooth, and one can ensure that your nails are shiny and looking their best.
Nail File Options
Pick up a pack of disposable emery boards so that you always have some nail files on hand, or try a two-pack of salon-quality reusable nail files. Single nail files are available for purchase if you don't want to stock up. Regardless of your choice, you'll enjoy better shaped, well-groomed nails with these effective nail files.
