What is Electric Filling?

An electric nail file is a motorized file used for smoothing the edges of human fingernails and toenails. It may be a corded model that plugs into a traditional wall outlet or be wireless and powered by batteries.

Overview

The electric files themselves have high vibrations, are too lightweight to control and have no manufacturer after sales care. The electric file bits may be of poor quality, are an uneven grit and can cause more work for the tech and often damage the nail when used, especially on the cuticle area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does an electric nail file hurt?

If your e-file is jumping around while filing in a tight area, you may end up hitting skin or causing other damage. Lastly, vibration is also damaging to a nail tech’s hands and arms. The extra muscle you end up using trying to maintain control and a grip can lead to joint, muscle, and tendon damage.

Can you use an efile on natural nails?

For your next natural nail manicure, put your nippers aside and try an e-file instead. According to Elaine Watson, veteran nail tech and creator of Nailebrity, using an e-file to clean the dead skin from the nail is easy, gentle and extremely effective.

How do you grind down thick toenails?

Use gentle pressure and grind it thinner until it is normal thickness or starts to get warm. If it gets warm, stop and then do a little more later or the following day. Continue grinding a little each day until the nail is normal thickness.

Is nail filing bad?

Filing seems like a great way to keep jagged nails at bay, but you may be doing it all wrong. Nails should be filed in one direction, Backe said. “Filing them back and forth causes splits and ragged edges, preventing the nails from growing back smooth,” he said.

Why does it burn when I use my nail drill?

The burning sensation comes from the friction of the bit on the nail. Be sure you’re not using it in a back-and-forth motion, but are going in one direction and lifting the bit off the nail at the end of the stroke and returning to the side of the nail you began on.

Do electric nail files work?

The electric files themselves have high vibrations, are too lightweight to control and have no manufacturer after sales care. The electric file bits may be of poor quality, are an uneven grit and can cause more work for the tech and often damage the nail when used, especially on the cuticle area.

Is it better to file nails or cut?

A file is the only thing you should use to shape your nails. If you cut them you run the risk of trimming off too much length and leaving little room for fine-tuning the shape. Always file your nails in one direction starting at the outer and working your way around.

What are nail drills used for?

An electric nail drill or e-file is an electric-powered rotary tool used for filing nails or removing nail enhancements. To do specific jobs, a nail drill would need “bits”. These coated drill tips come in various grits, materials, sizes, and shapes.

Do you need a qualification to use an e-file?

The short answer is no! If you’ve not used an electric nail file before, the first step is to sign up for a course. Elaine says, “Education is key and you want to make sure the person is certified or is qualified to teach. Stay away from YouTube unless you know they are reputable and are giving proper education.”

How often should I file my nails?

The average person’s fingernails grow about 0.08 to 0.12 inches (2 to 3 millimeters) in a month, so trimming and filing about once a week should suffice for most people [source: American Academy of Dermatology].

What is the proper way to file your nails?

Start from one of the outside corners and file toward the center. Don’t file back and forth across the entire nail tip because it can damage the nail. When you achieve the desired length and shape on one side, file from the opposite corner toward the center. Go slowly.

Does filing nails strengthen them?

Filing your nails in a back-and-forth motion like a saw can actually weaken your nails. File in one direction only, and go easy on the sides of the nails since filing too much there can weaken the nail.

Why do nail salons file the top of your nail?

The purpose of filing the nail bed is to remove oil and rough the surface up so that the acrylic is able to properly adhere to the natural nail. But you don’t need to use a drill to do that; you can get the same results — minus the damage and soreness — by gently using a hand file.

How do I get my nails to stop burning?

If the nail bed is burning, the nail technician may apply an antiseptic to the nail and may consider discontinuing the use of primer during future nail services. If the cuticle area is burning, then it may be neutralized with an over-the-counter antacid product. Remember, primer should be used VERY SPARINGLY.

Do nail drills hurt?

Never let anyone use an electric drill or buff on your nail bed to the extreme of causing pain. If electric drills are used correctly and people are trained to use them, they are a very effective and fast way of removing old gel or acrylic nails.
