File tips for natural nails
On a natural nail, it is important to set the speed of the electric file to slow or medium. Too fast a speed could injure your client and above all, be sure to raise the tip regularly to avoid excessive heat on the plate. Also, never use carbide tips on a natural nail.
If you want to remove the yellowed effect under the free edges, you can whiten them using a conical diamond or polishing stone tip.
When it comes to polishing, you’ll need a rather special bit. This tip is made up of several layers of superimposed leather, in order to create a good thickness. Using a cuticle oil spread on the plate, gently massage the nail with the tip on slow to medium speed. Always maintain low pressure and raise the tip frequently so as not to create overheating.
