An electric filer is a necessary tool in every nail salon. E-filer has a number of advantages. First of all, it shortens the time spent on manicures and pedicures. It can be used on a dry cuticle so there is no need to soften them beforehand. In skilful hands, this method is faster, safer and more hygienic than traditional file and nippers.
