I have a favorite bit that I use to clean up the cuticle on the nail plate. Especially wonderful for those clients that have concrete cuticles and lots of it. Since I have used this bit there is no more lifting.. ever.

Do you use a bit? yes or no.

If you dont use a bit, how do you efficiently remove the cuticle on the nail plate?

If you do use a bit, which one do you use?

Thanks so much for your input.
The reason I am asking is for my students at my school to get a better idea of what the industy is doing and not just my own opinion.
Please help me out.
Thanks
Well look, it's Cindy formerly of oregon Smile hope you are well!

I used to use the same bit for prep, but found it too easy to end up with rings of fire. I don't want that!
I went back to using a hand file for the natural nail.

hi Cindy,what bit do you use for, prep, I use a pencil diamond .And by the way, I never have rings of fire. Pressure is the major key to stay away from getting those... just my own exp. for 25 years...any way, what that bit again ? I love your work.....
I tried to vote in the poll but it's telling me that I'm not able to vote....?? I use a diamond bit to prep. I haven't used sanding bands in years.

I had the same problem with trying to vote...I use a fine, thin, diamond football bit. Never a problem with rings of fire. Works awesome.
Well, slow speed and hardly any pressure still equaled rof. For me. I used the Erika bit, was shown how to properly use it and I don't get rof with any other prep. So I stopped.
I use a file now because I'm not trained yet but when I do, I'll be using an e-file.
I use an ulta fine bit for cutile clean up

I never use an Efile on the nail bed. Always hand prep.

Hi, Thanks for the compliment. I love any prep bit like the ones from Atwood Industries he sells for prepping. I like the diamond pencils and the ones with the small cone diamond, but mostly the pencil bit. I also never have problems with rings of fire. Its all in the pressure, which I dont need with the bits.
Thanks foir your input. And pls whats your real name and facebook addy?
