It would be a perfectly good way to remove the colour from the top of an enhancement as you can't wrap it off an enhancement, but on a natural nail ??? I wouldn't risk it and I am very very gentle with my drill and my safety mandril (it is a great bit ... use it all the time).Yep Geeg that's exactly the bit, a carbide with smooth rounded end! I read about it in nail pro and it out lines the steps as
1, push cuticle back
2, gently tickle the nail to remove the gel polish
3, lightly buff nail and shape
4 your ready to go again..
A safe way to remove gel polish in less than 5 minutes. This is why I'm so intrigued, I use youngs ManiQ gel polishes and have noticed it can be extremely difficult to remove, especially so on clients that have the colour I filled instead of opting for colour change.
I thought I'd stumbled across siomething new and amazing :-(
Well there are allot of fools around using allot of tools and allot of damage is being done .. many more than those with the skill to use a drill gently. I am very skilled with a drill and I wouldn't use a carbide bit at 20,000 rpms anywhere near a natural nail.The bit is designed to be used with young nails products! Maniq is slightly different to shellac, etc!! Use what your comfortable with! Quote from Greg it's the fouls that do the damage not the tools!!!
I would not do that either. A sanding band is even more destructive than a carbide bit is to the surface of the natural nail.I wouldn't use a carbide bit on a natural nail!
If you watch the Young Nails videos on YouTube Greg uses a sanding band on the natural nail at very low speed.
