What is the grit of a nail file?

Disposable Zebra Nail Files 100/180 Grit Double Sided Emery Board

All nail files are numbered, but what exactly do these numbers mean? Today, the nail supply expert Maryton will explain everything to you in this article. Just keep reading!

In fact, the numbers refer to the grit of the nail file, or the size and coarseness of the file’s abrasive particles. When the two numbers are the same, it means that both sides of the file have the same grit. If the numbers are different, it means that each side of the file has a different grain and function.

A 180/180 grit file means both sides have a 180 grit. A 100/180 grit file means one side has a coarser grit than the other. In general, the lower the grit number, the coarser the grit, and the higher the grit number, the finer the grit.

By understanding how the grit affects the file, you can determine which file is best for your needs.  In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure and pedicure sets to care for your nails.
