Materials: Paper, cloth, plastic
EASY STEPS TO USE:
Soak. Cut. File. Rinse. Ready to go! Soak in warm water, dry off well. Cut each nail to an equal length. File in one direction only, avoid the corner edges as it causes to weaken the natural nails. Rinse off with warm water. Your nails are ready to be polished or left natural.
Nail files are white, double-sided, disposable, grit size 120/180; 120 grit is for artificial nails and 180 grit is for natural nails. Keep your nails beautiful all the time while traveling as the nail files are compact to fit in your pocket. Let your nails shine anywhere anytime.
How to Use
Start at the outer edge of one nail. Hold the file at a 45-90 degree angle against the nail edge and sweep the file towards the center of the nail. Repeat this until your nail tip is the desired shape.
- Silver Side: 120 grit for artificial nails
- Colored Side: 180 grit for natural nails
- File in one direction. Rubbing the nail file in a back and forth motion can cause the nail to split.
- Avoid corner edges of nail. The corner edges of the nail are the oldest and most delicate part of the nail. Too much friction can cause this part of the nail to weaken and be damaged. Be gentle with the nail corners.
- Soaking your fingertips or toenails in warm water for 3-5 minutes before using the nail file will soften the nails and produce better results. Make sure you dry the nail before you use the file.
- Follow the nail file with the Onsen nail block and cuticle conditioner for a finished, natural look and healthier nails.
Just what I needed
I know the price might be a little crazy, but boy the quality is amazing! I love these and I believe it's super worth the price. I highly recommend!
I've seen these a few times while nosing around here. I needed some new files, I've been doing my own nails for years and a lot of times I find that my files don't last very long. I love Japanese products and knew that these would be of a higher quality than most that are offered.It may seem a bit expensive for the 3-way buffer, but sooooo worth it. Another bonus is that you can replace the pads, keep it clean using an alcohol prep pad, just don't use the alcohol on the white buffer. I seem to go through the white buffers faster and you can buy just those or the whole set.The white buffer, as well as all three sides give you a smooth glossy shine that looks like you just polished them. I can't believe how smooth my nails are without using polish and find that I don't put color on them as much.Also included in the set were six normal files. These hold up very well and don't separate from the board. The grit is 120/180,and I'm not sure what the grit is for the 3-way buffer. There's also instructions to get the best results for healthy nails and to increase growth.I can't say enough about these and they are the only ones I'll be using from here on out. I expect the buffer to last a long time, that's if it survives my cats who love to play with it and chew on it occasionally.
These are indeed professional grade nail files which are sturdy and long enough for lots of use and yet treat your nails gently - just the qualities I've come to expect from Onsen. But be warned - as soon as your friends and family know that you have 10 of them (a great cost-effective buy), they'll all want one!
These are the best nail files I have ever used and I have been doing my own natural nails for years. I particularly like the size because they are very sturdy yet easy to pack and throw in your purse. I won’t buy any other brand now!
