    Various electric nail file tools and bit in use

    Electric nail files are an essential tool for nail technicians, as they allow for more precise and efficient nail work. A variety of attachments and tools are available that can be used for different purposes, including shaping, smoothing, and polishing nails. The most commonly used are:

    Sanding Bands & Mandrels

    Sanding bands are probably the most widely used attachment for electric nail files. The bands are made of sandpaper-like material that is wrapped around a cylinder-shaped mandrel. Sanding bands come in a variety of grits, ranging from coarse to fine. Coarse grits are used for removing thick layers of gel or acrylic, while fine grits are used for smoothing and shaping the nail.

    Diamond Bits

    Diamond bits are made of small particles of diamond that are bonded to a metal shank. They are used for filing and shaping acrylic and gel nails. Diamond bits come in different shapes and sizes, including barrel, cone, flame, and tapered. Each shape is designed for a specific purpose, such as removing the cuticle, shaping the nail bed, or smoothing the nail surface.

    Carbide Bits

    Carbide bits are made of tungsten carbide, a hard and durable material. They are used for filing and shaping natural nails and removing gel and acrylic. Carbide bits come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including cylinder, cone, and flame. They are ideal for heavy-duty tasks, such as removing thick layers of gel or acrylic.

    Ceramic Bits

    Ceramic bits are made of a ceramic material that is gentle on natural nails. They are used for smoothing and shaping the nail surface and removing cuticle. Ceramic bits come in different shapes and sizes, including ball, cone, and cylinder. They are suitable for delicate tasks, such as finishing the edges of the nail or cleaning under the nail edge.

    Buffing Attachments

    Buffing attachments are used to buff and shine the nails.
