Nae bad Sharon.Sharon said:Ps. Fit like Fiona, Do you still have the Aberdonian twang?
Well a bad workman always blames his tools springs to mind.and this wasnt due to bad technicians...cos I had them done by a few different ladies there in the hopes that it would be different..... no....it was due to the manual filing!
While this is true, I would be flabbergasted to see anyone touch the natural nail with anything more abrasive than a 240 or a 180. The opposite is also true (in fact, I feel truer) a nail tech can easily do more damage with an efile than a nail tech that has been properly trained with an abrasiveA nail tech can do more damage using an 100grit file than a nail tech who has been properly trained using an efile
This type of approach is a very positive one as it does help minimise dust. One of the key negative factors regarding efiling is the fine particulates of dust created. These particulates are significantly smaller than those found while hand filing and as such, they stay suspended in the air for a greater period of time. The smaller the dust particulate, the fewer defenses your body has against it as small dust particulates are harder to catch and expel from the body.Drill Eze cushions the cuticle from the drill bit it also grabs hold of the dust so it falls downwards and not up in the air
Well said!If you wanted to get an efile to reduce the time it takes to do maintenance or a new set then you are doing something wrong!
I'm sorry but this just makes my skin crawl. I have great respect for Ez Flow and it's users, but I just really can't understand why you need to use an efile on the natural nail. Surely, by using it you're still going to cause more damage to the nail than if you are using a 240grit file. The other thing is why use an efile if you sculpt with your brush in the first place. Not meaning to sound up my proverbial a**e ( :shock: ), but if I used an efile on my clients' nails, I'd have no product left to call them enhancements!!When filing the natural nail you can not get right into the cuticle area like you can with an efile and not catch your clients skin.
I use my prep bit at the slowest speed on the natural nail as not to cause damage to the nail and i gently remove the shine from the surface of the nail plate.
