What is a Nail Drill
Nail drill manicure becomes more and more popular these days, and for a good reason. This procedure requires no time-consuming manipulations with scissors and nail nippers. A nail drill is a manicuring machine with a hand piece and replaceable bits. It allows easy and comfortable nails care by applying rotating bits to nails, sidewalls, and cuticles. As a result, you get perfect manicure and pedicure in no time at all! Don't spend a fortune on beauty salons any longer, get a professional grade manicure set to use right at home.
To dry gel nail polish faster, consider getting a nail dryer. And a callus remover will help remove rough skin and calluses off your feet making them look perfectly smooth.
What Features to Compare
How to choose a suitable nail drill? First of all, you should consider the Rotation Speed, measured in RPM (revolution per minute). A broad range of speed settings and a speed control ensure electric nail drill's efficiency and functionality. However, it is not advisable to work at the maximum speed until you get used to the device. As soon as you feel confident operating your nail drill, you can switch it to run at higher speeds safely.
Most manufacturers include auxiliary bits for users to perform a great number of manicuring tasks. If you get such a multifunctional tool, you'll be able to shape and buff nails, remove dead skin and cut cuticle; some bits allow removing calluses and ingrown nails too. The bits may differ in shapes and sizes but you will still recognise what exactly they've been designed for by their look.
Scope of Supply
In addition to the bits, some manufacturers broaden their supply package with some extras like, for example, sanding bands which are helpful when you need to treat artificial nails or remove minor calluses. What you need to remember, though, is that all sanding disks can be used only once and then must be disposed of. A special holder or a cradle can be designed to hold your hand piece when it's not in use. An ergonomic foot pedal enables speed control. An included nail drill carrying case offers convenient storage and transportation of the unit.
Electric nail drills are either mains- or battery-powered. If you are looking for a nail drill that you could carry around and use during a trip, consider buying a rechargeable one. Such drills are more portable and can boast up to 5 hours of wireless use. Yet, if you need an efficient tool to use at home, mains-powered electric nail drill would be the right thing to buy.
