What grains of nail buffers to choose?


When working with nail buffers, there are different points that you need to know and consider, both for polishing natural nails. In this article, the nail supply expert Maryton will tell you the grains of nail buffers and what each grit is suitable for.

100 Grit Pad: The 100 grit pad is ideal for buffing the surface of an improvement, buffing out harsh lines and deeper imperfections. It is not recommended to use 100 grit on a recently applied acrylic product.

180 Grit Pad: The 180 grit pad is softer than the 100 grit. It is ideal for polishing the surface of a fresh gel enhancement. A polished surface with 180 grit is also the surface to which gel topcoat is recommended to adhere.

240 Grit Buffer: The 240 Grit Buffer is used to remove shine from the natural nail and eliminate sharp edges. When applying gel, acrylic or some brands of gel polish, it is necessary to achieve a bond correct between the products and the natural nail.

For nail products to attach properly to the natural nail, it is only necessary to carefully file the upper layers of the nail plate, where oil and non-living tissue can create a barrier between the nail natural and the product.

2,400-12,000 grit buffer: High gloss polishing pad, intended for polishing natural and artificial nails. Gives a shiny “wet” appearance. Be aware that nail polish will not adhere to a surface that has been buffed to a high shine with a waxy file.
