Heather111 said:Further to my recent post of 'nightmare', can I just ask what files everyone finds best to rebalance with. I'm sure I'm using the wrong grit that's why it's taking me forever!
Yeah its confusing - look out for the files which are colour coded. I'm not sure if they're Star Nails but the 180/100 grit have pink side, 180 grit have green side and 240 grit have blue side - ideal aint it?Deb379 said:It is confusing when they don't have the grit printed on them, so I have decided to take 1 of each now, and put a sticker on them and refer to them when I can't remember which is which!
Sorry Carole I have to correct you there............bless ya !!!!Carole Lindsay said:I start with 100 grit to thin down more quickly, then switch to a 180, then finally a 240 to finish off with. It used to take me forever until Ruth (NailsinLondon) advised to use a 100 to start with!

120 grit is ok as you are filing on old product....remember to file towards any lifting, not from lifting to adhered product..this way the lifted prodcut will just flake off and no nail damage ....Also when filing new product remember, don't use 120 grit.........go for 180+ and Koala.........................
Happy Re-balancing xxx
