Sharpening of the tool for manicure

Nobody wants that in the course of carrying out manicure fingers were cut - or the cuticle was partially removed, differing in the "torn" edges. Not to allow a similar situation, masters periodically carry out sharpening of tools for manicure.

Equipment and features of sharpening

It is necessary to pay the decent sum of money for professional sharpening of stock. But such investment justifies itself as prolongs service life of tools. Besides well ground nozhnichka, tweezers or nippers don't injure an integument and don't harm to a nail plate.

Some try to carry out this procedure independently, in house conditions.

But about everything one after another. It is worth understanding subtleties of professional sharpening and implementation of such manipulation with own forces. Not all know how to avoid mistakes and not to spoil stock.

Going to a workshop on sharpening of tools for manicure, try to find responses and opinions of clients who already managed to use services of this expert. Don't trust the tool to the "wandering" masters who in search of clients pass from one beauty shop to another. They can carry out necessary procedure poor or simply put stock out of commission.

There are two technicians of sharpening of adaptations for manicure:

  1. With use of the special machine.
  2. Manually - or so-called individual sharpening.

If the master applies the first equipment, then your tools will be ground on the special equipment with application of diamond and polishing circles, and as the finishing phase — a felt washer. Such machine allows:

Such process is carried out under a microscope, with use of diamond whetstone. The expert polishes each millimeter of an edge.

If you entrust the tool to the high quality expert, the offhand grinding will be carried out at higher level, than with use of the machine. If your adaptations fall into hands of the inexperienced expert, then there is a risk forever them to spoil.

Tweezers, scissors and nippers will be able to sustain from 25 to 35 such procedures - unlike the first option.
