These 100/180 files are literally all you need to sort out your sidewalls, and get rid of any nasty lumps in your dip.
If you're using a self-levelling top coat, you can totally get away with just these and our white buffer blocks - no need for fancy tools or e-files!
(If your top coat is a little thinner or not self-levelling, our orange buffers will give you next-level smoothness - these are also perfect for matt finishes.)
These crescent files are long lasting and the crescent side makes it super easy to get those cuticles nice and neat!
Each side has a different grit - I use the rough grit the most to knock down any major bumps and to get the nail thickness nice and even.
I also run it along the side walls to get them nice and straight, and for significant nail shaping.
The finer side is still gritty but not as extra as the rough side. I use this for more minor bumps or when I'm worried that I'm buffing off too much colour. Also for less significant shaping.
- Seasoning your files before use! This just means rubbing your files together to dull the sharp edge. New files can be super sharp on their edges (to the point of cutting you!) so this will keep all your fingers firmly attached. ;)
I love them. Great for filing edges, sturdy, manageable and durable. Best I've ever used. Love how they mould into the base and sides. Can't do that well with straight files.
Great price for a mani essential.
