Definition of Files

  1. Nail files use abrasives in various grits to roughen, shape, polish, or remove the surface of artificial and natural nails. The nail file may be made of material that is porous (single use, non-reusable) or non-porous (sanitizable, reusable).

    Foot files are typically used to smooth out rough calluses and get rid of dry, flaky dead skin on the bottom of feet.
