The different types of nail files

Whether it’s loose at the bottom of your handbag, stored in your office pencil holder, or carefully organized among your other manicure items…But did you know that there are several types? Keep reading, this article will explain everything to you.

The electric file

It is rather reserved for fans of “at home” manicure. Indeed, the electric nail file has several tips which will file more or less hard, polish, reduce streaks… The different heads are, of course, to be adapted according to your type of nails. But be careful not to use it too frequently, otherwise you risk weakening your nails through repetitive care.

The cardboard file

It is found everywhere and in all sizes, with all possible grains. It is also the least expensive. The problem is that it is not really eco-friendly since it wears out relatively quickly, thus becoming ineffective. On the other hand, all nails can use it, and in particular thin and brittle nails, if the grain is suitable.

The metal file

Avoid if you have natural nails. In fact, this type of file tends to split them, or to separate the layers of the nail, ending up splitting them. It is used more for false nails because it is often roughly “scratched” and therefore allows for quick roughing.

The glass file

Perfect for normal to hard natural nails, the grains are fine. For filing your nails effortlessly, it’s really great. In addition, you will obtain an unrivaled result with another type of file.
