As each piece of technology we use in our daily lives continues to get smarter with every iteration, so do our nail service tools. Gelish has been a true pioneer for improvements in the e-file space, and their latest e-file is the smartest of them all. The new Go File IQ has already won the hearts of nail techs everywhere for many reasons. Why? Because it does so many things.

Having spent ample time with the innovative new e-file, Texas nail artist Sarah Grimes (@sarahnailsit) has found plenty of features she loves about it. Not only does it save her time and make her extra money, but the ultra-efficient features impress her as well. See Grimes’ thoughts on the Go File IQ below.

RPM Presets and Pausing

Never miss a single beat in your service with time-saving features, like pre-programmed adjustable RPM settings and pausing at the touch of a button. And, as we know, time is money! With the time you save using the Go File IQ, you can take more clients or spend the extra time doing add-on services. Grimes enjoys gracing her clients with detailed nail art. That equates to more money in your pocket.

Slim, Smart Handpiece

Grimes praises the Go File IQ for the comfortability and slimness of its handpiece. She loves how her hand gets less tired from clutching the file than when using a typical e-file. It’s also lighter than others she has used, and therefore generally more ergonomic, preventing career-disrupting hand and wrist injuries in the long run. Not to mention, the unit fits any universal bit and holds them completely securely, and with the built-in smart torque technology, the motor will never choke up or slow down when filing.

Portable, Chargeable Unit

Do you make house calls, work on sets, or do any other kind of nail work on the go? The wireless Go File IQ unit weighs less than a pound and is rechargeable, making it easy to grab on a whim—and the battery lasts for up to six hours. The light around the display screen clearly shows when your battery is sufficiently charged (blue, 30-100%), currently charging (flashing yellow), or low (red, below 30%) so there’s no guesswork or unpleasant surprises.

As a service provider and/or business owner, it’s always a good idea to invest in high-quality tools that boost efficiency and save or make you extra money. You can be sure that the Go File IQ is one of the smartest investments a nail tech can make.
