Silicone Buffing Bit (D1)
PREPPING FOR THE FULL SET
Because it isn't necessary to rough up the natural
nail to prepare it for an artificial application (you
need only take off the shiny surface) a Coarse Silicone
Buffing Bit (color green) will do this. You can gently
clean away any excess cuticle from the nail plate by
pushing it back with a Cuticle Pusher or Silicone Buffing
Bits before using the Electric File.
Use the machine at a very slow speed and with a light
pressure. At a 45-degree angle, start from the right
side of the nail at the groove wall and slowly work
your way around the cuticle and top of the nail until
you reach the left side of the cuticle. Then, keeping
the Bit flush with the nail, go over the entire surface
from left to right and back again, making sure you have
not left any part of the nail untouched. Always lift
the bit off the nail after a few strokes so that heat
doesn't build up causing discomfort to your client.
Remove dust from the nail plate with a clean nylon brush
and proceed with your product application.
