Always file slow, in one direction, this avoids heat building up.
What’s grit all about?
Essentially all files are coated in a material similar to sandpaper; this creates a grit like coarse surface. Like sandpaper, nail files are graded according to how much grit they contain per square inch. The general rule is the lower the grit number the coarser the file. Whilst you might think it will be quicker to always use the coarsest file, this is incorrect. Each grit combination has been carefully designed for use in a particular task. Choosing the wrong file could cause significant damage to the nail.
