Get the look you want with professional nail buffers and filers

Whether you have your own salon or you want to create an elevated look at home, professional-grade nail filers and buffers will make a world of difference. Because nail files use friction to ‘grab’ and wear down the nail, it’s important you choose the best nail filers with the appropriate grit. This will help remove bulk and smooth the nail without risking any damage.

Starting with the most coarse nail file, typically an 80 grit, will help you to reduce the nail without causing fatigue. 100 and 150 grit nail filers are ideal for smoothing out the free edge and refining the shape further. 180 to 240 grit nail files are the finest grit available and will further smooth any uneven points on the nail that might otherwise snag or catch on clothing. Fine and extra-fine nail filers are also great to use on the surface of the nail as well as the sidewall. This tool will give you a smoother result at the base of the nail around the cuticle.

Finally, a buffing block will help to smooth out the surface of the nail plate and bring out its natural shine. The best nail buffers can work on natural nails and extensions alike, bringing out a luminosity in the nail plate to enhance any manicure.

How long do nail filers last?

As soon as you stop feeling any resistance from a nail filer, it means that friction has worn down the grit level, and the file is no longer effective. Depending on how often you use a nail file, this may take anywhere from a few uses to a few months. In general, though, emery board nail files shouldn’t be used for more than three months — and we recommend single-use disposable nail files in salons to avoid hygiene concerns.

Do nail filers have layers?

We stock a collection of nail filers, nail file sets and buffer blocks that come with a range of increasing grit sizes for a step by step approach to finessing nails. These nail files are generally made from a layer of grit that is adhered to a softer sponge or rigid core to make filing more effortless and improve control.
