SHAPE: Football Barrel Taper Cone Brushy Bit
Grit Medium Medium Medium Medium Medium
Speed Varies by bit and material (Take a class!) Varies by bit and material (Take a class!) Varies by bit and material (Take a class!) Varies by bit and material (Take a class!) Varies by bit and material (Take a class!)
Purpose Around the perimeter of the nail Debulking and length reduction Around the perimeter and under the extension edge Around the perimeter and under the extension edge To clean dust or glitter from the nails and surrounding skin
