electric file

January 2, 2011  | Encyclopedia

An electric file (formerly called a "drill") is tool used by nail technicians to speed up, streamline, or make easier some nail services; the electric file allows nail technicians to file or finish areas of the nail that are hard to reach (for example, under the free edge of a newly created sculpted nail); the preferred term for a nail drill. Electric files can enhance the nail tech’s filing methods by allowing her to shape nails faster, do more proficient backfills, and refine the cuticle area with precision.
