The things you need to know about the bits of a nail drill
Do you master nail drills better and better? You can be proud of yourself. The next step is to master nail drill bits. Cone, cylinder, disc, fine grain, you will know all about the tips of a nail drill.
Regarding the abrasive belts, these cannot be disinfected. It is for this reason that abrasive strips are single-use paper wicks. They must therefore be changed after each use. In addition, they exist in three types of grains: coarse, medium and fine:
- Coarse grain: It is used to shorten long acrylic nails when applying false nails.
- Medium Grit: It is used to clean excess around the cuticles, under the nails and around the tips of the nails after applying polish.
- Fine Grit: It is mainly used to gently roughen the natural nail surface to create a good bond between acrylics and natural nails.
Carbide bits are made of metallic carbide. This is 20 times stronger than steel. They are therefore designed to last a long time.
Carbide bits have flute-shaped notches. These allow the carbide tip to shave the varnish without scratching it unlike diamond tips. Deep, wide flutes give a coarse grain. Shallower ones usually indicate a thinner tip.
The main advantage of a ceramic mouthpiece is that they do not heat up in the same way as other mouthpieces. In addition, they are durable over time. Ceramic tips help shave off polish.
Diamond bits are the hardest bits available. They are used to remove varnish by scraping it off. However, they create more dust and friction than the previously mentioned bits and therefore more heat. In addition, they do not rust after being disinfected.
OK! I am sure you already know the differences of nail drill bits. Last but not in the least, I advise you to invest in a complete manicure set to care for your nails!
