Full Version: Looking Affordabler Single Use Files for Pedicure
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hello,
I'm looking for nail files for our pedicures that are affordable enough to throw out after each client. We sanatize them with Ultronics, but I still think a new file with each client is the best way to go. I need to get the okay from my boss but needed some options to start with. Also how about the Buffer Blocks????

THANKS, Kelly*
I use the peel-and-stick Pedi Pro file with Fine and Coarse grits:

I was using Heavenly Soles peel and stick fields by BackScratchers but the adhesive is a little too sticky - having to both disinfect and soak the handles in alcohol to get rid of the sticky got old very quickly!
I like the prosticks ones. They dont leave a sticky residue and they stay put for wet filing.

I'll second the pedi-pro.. They are awesome!!
I get mine at Nailite. They are really inexpensive, so great for throwing away.
This is what we use, they have mini buffer to.

I like these for pedicures because they are small to work with and are .27 each. Register and you will see the price change if you add to cart. $13.97 for 50 ct.
I just got the pedi pro at Nailpro Sacramento. I can't wait to try it out!
PediPro is my favorite!

$13 for 60 count coarse or fine disposable abrasives; only $11 when you buy 10 packages

Never mind. I was thinking files for nails Wink
If all you are doing is shaping the free edge of the toenails, why not try using a metal file? I have used an Erica Diamond File for years - both on mani & pedi services. You can disinfect it and it more than pays for itself in just a couple of months.

Edit: If I misread this and you are looking for a foot file to reduce callus, I would recommend the metal Angel Feet Foot File - disinfect between clients, similar to the files I mention above. Best of all, no waste.

I have been using both for the past 4 years and they are showing no signs of wearing out.
Since this post is a bit older I wondered what everyone is still using? I live in Canada and using a silkline stainless steel handle with disposable grits but frustrated with the lack of stock. I just ordered the prosticks nail files ( I have access to US delivery and will get them tomorrow) so thinking I will make the switch to the foot files. thanks!
i would also love to know what kind of nail files you use to shape the nails.what grit is better for toe nails?
180 for toe nails, 240 for fingernails. We use a cheap 5 cents a file kind in the salon.
where do you get those files ?
I'll have to get the name when I'm at work tomorrow. It's a corporate high end salon so they are able to go directly to the source and get great prices.
ok i will wait!thank you very much! Smile
Diane Beauty is the company that makes the files and plastic brushes we use
