To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Price & quality of these files is fine, they look & feel like professional files... They also arrived fairly quickly which is great (5/6 days I think in Aus)! My only reason for giving 4 stars is that they're actually VERY gritty... Meaning that the 180 side feels more like about 150 grit to me. This isn't a bad thing, but DO NOT forget to season your files before use & they aren't the best for surface filing gel nails until they've worn down quite a bit. Aside from this, they work very well & have each been disinfected a few times before some tip edges becoming very slightly frayed... (See photo).
I have to say that the 240 side is great for a very coarse grit for natural nails. The 120 however feels as though it might rip them right off. I'm sure these files will be great for those who work with fake nails, as the grit would most likely easily file them down. I'll wait until I've used mine enough to get a finer grit...maybe one will last me the rest of my life. EDITED... *** I downgraded my review to one star, and I would put it at ZERO stars if I had the chance. These files ruined my beautiful, strong natural nails. I have been playing catch up for almost a month repairing the damage that they've done. Once strong as steel, my nails have turned into a chipping, peeling, breaking mess over the course of only a month after using the FINE side of these files. I bought these files because they had the best rating. Best rating for fake, plastic nails, maybe. Buyer beware if you plan on using these files for your own, natural nails. Don't suffer the consequences like I did!
One of the Best Nail Files for shaping Polygel, Acrylic, UV Gel, and Powder Dip Systems!!! Would not recommend on regular nails. That's just over kill 120/240 grit, and that's not what these files are used for. One file for personal use lasted me 3 months at work, and is now the condition of a regular file you would buy at the store, to give you an idea of its quality. Will be back!
I got these not long ago and I been using them everyday and they exceeded my expectations and beat the other brand. But, I like both brands for different things even though they are the same grits. Recommend this to anyone looking for a good hand file.
These nail files are everything! It’s my first time using a Makartt nail file and compared to all of the other ones that I’ve used so far this one seems to leave the nails looking perfectly etched. The fact that you’re able to wash them to get a few more uses out of it is perfect. I find some files after being used are done and get thrown again but not yet with these bad boys;);)
