Sanding Band

For fine tuning underneath the edge of the tip as you look down the Barrel of the nail, Most nail technicians like to use a fine or medium grit sanding band. They prefer a sanding band for this task because it's a little wider and can usually sand the entire underside of the tip with one swipe, refining the concave and convex curves of the tip so they match. Hold the nail, looking straight down the barrel of the nail, and place the bit right up against the underside edge so the bit touches every part of the edge to define the C-curve.
