What is grit?
Mostly all files are coated with a material similar to sand paper; this creates a grainy like surface. Like sandpaper, nail files get graded according to how much grit they contain per square inch. The general rule is the lower the grit number, the coarser the file. While you might think it will be quicker to always use the coarsest file, this can be wrong. Each grit combination is carefully designed for use in a particular task. Choosing the wrong file could cause significant damage to the nail.
