Help!! I am currently a Nail tech student. What are the files and buffer numbers you need to use to first remove shine from nail for acrylic nails and then once done what grit and buffer do I use to remove lumps and to remove scratches and give that shine? Thank You :?
Hi hun, your instructor should be able to tell you this information? I'm not trying to be rude, but that's who you should be asking. We may tell you the wrong thing here because we each do things differently, and it may not be what your instructor teaches.

I will tell you this, when you are working on the natural nail, you want a higher numbered grit (180 +) and use a very light touch. When you are filing product on nails (acrylic, gel etc) you will start with a lower grit to shape the nails, then graduate your way up to a high gloss buffer to get the shine.
