The e-file manicure drill that I have been using for almost two years is 20% off today so I thought I'd dedicate a post to answer some e-file questions & share that I just added an E-File Gel Removal & Manicure Prep Course to my site! More on that later :)
Q: Why do I love my e-file? What do I use it for?
A bunch of reasons!!
First off - I use my e-file for gel manicure removal & manicure prep! I like to think of the e-file as just a step in my prep process. But also, the e-file:
- Allows me to do a fully dry manicure
Helps me do a QUICK & efficient gel manicure
- Allows me to keep a thin layer of base gel on my nail surface, and gives my nails additional protection!
Cuticle bits allow you to get extremely precise and can help with longevity
Takes a little bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, you will love it!
Q: Is it hard to use?
Short answer, no. Long answer, I don't think anyone should use the e-file without learning how to properly use it to safely execute a manicure! This part is SO important because it's possible that you can cause some serious (and painful) damage to your nails if you don't know what you're doing! With that said, I've been using mine consistently for over a year now, and I'm SO glad that I put in the time & effort to learn how to use it because it has been AMAZING for my nails.
This is why I created a full course to teach you exactly how I like to use the e-file & how to safely perform gel removal & manicure prep using the tool! Check out my new course here!
This course is perfect for you if:
- You want to improve your gel manicures, make them last longer, perfect your technique, and keep your nails healthy and strong
- You are a beginner at using an e-file or you want to learn new skills and techniques for efficient and effective gel removal & mani prep
- You have a basic understanding of manicure prep & gel manicures and want to continue your nail education
Q: What products do I need?

Q: Can you share more about this process?
Yes!! I have a bunch of blog posts about how I've been using my e-file & builder gel to grow my nails and keep them strong. Check them out below:
Q: How do you know when you're getting close to your nail when filing off the gel & leaving a thin layer?
Also, make sure to follow me on TikTok where I've been sharing a bunch of additional educational content about my nails! :) Follow me HERE!
Q: Should I be worried if I accidentally went through my base layer in a few small spots when filing?
If you filed your natural nail and caused any damage, just be super gentle with it when filing to help it heal. In the future, if you're worried about getting to low on your nail and hitting it, just stop with e-file and move on to buffing or hand filing. I always recommend being super cautious and quitting while you're ahead to avoid any trouble!
