Types of Nail Files

Emery boards are divided into abrasiveness, production material and form.


Usually nail file bilateral and each side has its own value abrasive. For example if the numbers 100/180 nail files listed, it means that one side has abrasive nail file 100, and the second 180. The higher the number of abrasive, the harder the nail file. It is important to use a nail file to destination, especially with regard to natural nails. Using the wrong nail files hardness may result in injury or fingernail delamination. To specify the abrasiveness, a special unit "grit."
- 80 grit - Sawing is used to remove the core thickness of the artificial nail for the correction or removal. The toughest sawing. In any case not be used for natural nails.
- 100-180 grit - saws are used to shape the artificial nail in the modeling process. It is also not recommended for natural nails. with the exception of 180 grit, as it can be used for the preparation of the natural nail to capacity.
- 180-240 grit - are used to shape the free edge of the natural nail. Sawing is placed exactly perpendicular to the free edge, sawdust made from the edge to the center in one direction.
- More than 240 grit - it grinders and polishers for natural and artificial nails. used for leveling the surface of the nail and give it a glossy shine.


The most popular are cardboard-based nail files. They have an abrasive substrate having a different abrasive. You need to choose nail files, depending on the purpose for which they are used. Guided information on abrasives, you can choose for yourself the perfect nail file. Pay attention to the fact that such nail file can be cut only in one direction, so as not to provoke the separation of the nail plate. If the nail file is used in the cabin, as a rule such disposable nail file, as not all types of saws are subject to disinfection solutions - abrasive surface can just simply peel off the base. A nail file in the home can be used multiple times. Do not forget to wash and dry after each use a nail file.

Metal nail files can also be used for natural nails. But do not use those same nail file manicure sets from the Soviet Union. They damage the nail plate and provoke separation of the nail plate. Modern metal nail files are surface treated with a laser, which allows care of the nails. These nail files "sealed" the free edge of the nail to prevent delamination. Laser Nail Files can also be used for the treatment of the cuticle and side bolsters in the European manicure.

Glass nail files have similar properties with laser nail file, to the same glass nail files does not necessarily cut the nail in one direction. Their surface allows for "disorderly" movements, and file nails daily

Ceramic nail files have a soft surface and are suitable for the treatment of lateral ridges and cuticles. It is also like a glass seal the free edge of the nail.


Nail files come in different shapes - straight, boomerang, banana and so on. But the properties of nail files do not depend on its shape. Form - this is just the preference of the owner.
