It is important to know your nails well, to choose the right nail file.
Here are the different categories of nails that can be found:
Choose your nail file if you have:
- thin, soft, brittle, brittle or diseased natural nails
- natural nails of normal thickness
- thick natural nails
- sculpted nails, resin false nails, gel, acrylic
A little recap that will help you make the right choice for your file:
If you have thin, soft, brittle or brittle natural nails , use our Diamancel # 1 file . It is flexible with a fine grain for a soft, precise, smooth and uniform finish.
For natural nails of normal thickness , like most of us, use the flexible, medium grit Diamancel # 2 file . For a softer finish, finish with file # 1 . Alternatively to our # 2 file, the semi-flexible # 6 file can be used, a little more abrasive and less flexible.
As for the toenails , use the # 3 flexible, coarse-grained file. For a smooth finish, use the # 6 semi-flexible medium-grit file or the # 2 flexible medium-grit slightly finer file.
To shape and maintain sculpted nails, false nails in resin, gel or acrylic , use the # 4 semi-flexible file with extra-rough grain. It is the essential tool for a beauty professional to shape false nails. Once nails are shaped, use the # 3 flexible, coarse-grit file to smooth and hold over time.
For calluses on either side of the nails , use # 5 hand callus file. It gently but effectively removes dry skin from both sides of the nails. For beauty professionals, use this # 5 file to remove calluses before applying false nails.
