Electric Filing Techniques: Removing Lifted Acrylic

Using an electric file to remove lifted product will greatly reduce the time spent on this common repair.

Lifted product is one of the most common complaints associated with artificial nails. Here’s how to get rid of the pesky problem.

Type of bit to use:  Tapered

1.  Thin down the regrowth of acrylic that’s closest to the cuticle.

2.  Keeping the bit flat, use complete horizontal side-to-side motions. After the product has been refined, use a one-stroke method along the acrylic where the sealed and loose acrylic join and remove any remaining product.

3.  If a small white shadow appears around the sealed, refined product, do not worry. It won’t show underneath the acrylic.  Continue with the fill as usual.
