What is it? A curved Gel polish remover file, used to 'buff' away the shiny Gel polish top layer so that Gel Polish Remover Solution can soak off the Gel nail polish. With most Gel Polish brands, if you do not 'buff' the shiny layer off first, soaking will not work.
Why is it better? The curved shape makes it easier to get into the nail edges near the skin without causing damage. The inside of the curve also makes it easier to file Gel polish off the nail tip.

Gel Polish lasts weeks and looks amazing. It’s no wonder it’s so popular. However 52% believe it damages the natural nail.
Damage is often caused by incorrectly removing gel polish, for example picking or biting Gel polish off. For a good removal of most Gel polish brands, it is important to buff the surface of the gel polish to remove the shine, prior to soaking in the removal solution. Please read the label of the specific brand of Gel nail polish you use. For example CND Shellac does not need to be buffed first.
The Stylfile Gel Polish Remover File has a specially designed 'Zebra' Nail buffing surface made with black silicone carbide grit and then coated with white zinc stearate. This acts as a lubricant to reduce heat from friction when buffing the gel polish and stops the gel clogging the abrasive. The outside of the curve can be used to buff away the Gel polish shine.
The 'black' side of the file has black silicone grit which can be used to file the end of the nail.

3-in-1 Manicure Tool:
- Double-sided curved nail file: “Watching my sister file her nails, I had the idea of a curved file. The file follows the nails’ natural shape, making it easy to buff and file your nails, even when using your non-dominant hand. As an engineer, I’ve specially selected the abrasive on the file side to be long lasting, and the buffing side has a ‘Zebra’ buffing surface made with black silicone grit and then coated with white zinc stearate powder. This acts as a lubricant to reduce heat from friction when buffing the gel polish.
- Under-nail Skimmer: Gently use the Under-nail Skimmer to remove trapped dirt.
- Cuticle Pusher: Delicately pushes back and tidies the cuticles. Ideally soak cuticles in warm, soapy water for 5 minutes beforehand.
WARNING: This is not a toy. Keep out of the reach of children. Use with caution and as directed. Pushing cuticles without soaking, or too far back may cause damage.
