Are you looking for a grit to buff the natural nail to a shine?....or to remove shine as part of prep for enhancements?

If buffing to a shine...a 3 way buffer is Black side 320 grit...white side 4000 grit...grey side 12000 grit.

To remove shine before enhancements you would use a 240 grit.

I would never use anything less than a 240 grit on a natural nail.

deffo not the 80 grit, thats really course, it would shred a nail to bits :eek:
all the biosculpture answers are in the training manual. i suppose its the 280 if thats the only alternative.

I use NSI Sandturtles, which are equivalent to 240 grit.
