Standard Nail Diamond Burs

The Barrel, Small Barrel, Cone, & Football shapes are available in 2 shank sizes (1/8 inch & 3/32 inch). The thinner 3/32 shank is the more common size, it fits the Dental style micro motor machines, our Micro Ultra Nail Machine, and our older Micro Delux Nail machine. If you are using a Dremel or Craftsman machine you will probably need to use the thicker 1/8 inch shank size or purchase a collet that will allow you to use the thinner size bits. Please note: The Tapered Barrel is currently only available in the 3/32 inch shank.

The Barrel Diamond is used primarily on the top surface of the nail. This instrument is used to grind away the old sculpture material in preparation for a fill, or to shape a newly sculptured nail.

The Small Barrel Diamond is a very versatile instrument which can be used both on the top of the nail, as well as underneath the nail. This instrument can be used like the Barrel, to prepare for a fill or to shape a new nail, and it is small enough to fit under an average nail to clean sculpture product from underneath it.

The Cone Diamond is used primarily under the nail. This instrument is used to clean out the underside of the sculptured nail. Since the cone tapers down to almost a point and is safe ended, it can be used under very short nails.

The Football is used under the nail. This instrument is used to clean out the underside of the nail and around the cuticle area. This instrument is elliptical in shape, making it ideal for working underneath long nails, or grinding off the old sculpture material around the cuticle when preparing for a fill.

The Tapered Barrel Diamond is used as an alternative to the Standard Barrel Diamond. Use this tool primarily on the top surface of the nail. This instrument is used to grind away the old sculpture material in preparation for a fill, or to shape a newly sculptured nail.

When working with Acrylic Material, use the Coarse grit for heavy grinding or when using hard acrylic products. Use the Medium grit for light grinding or when working with soft acrylic products.

When working with Light Cured & Gel Material, use the Medium grit diamond burs.

When working with Wrap Material, use the Fine grit diamond burs.

When grinding with your rotary tools, you should constantly move the tool across the area you wish to reduce, blending it with the rest of the nail. A rotary tool will cut much faster than hand filing.  Care must be taken not to concentrate your grinding on a single spot, as the speed of the tool will quickly remove too much material, leaving you with a low spot to repair. A diamond instrument rarely heats up since heat dissipation is a natural characteristic of diamonds. However acrylic material does heat up with friction. By concentrating your cutting on a single spot, you cause the acrylic material to heat up, possibly burning your customer. By moving your tool across a large area while grinding, or by removing small amounts of acrylic material with short, quick passes, followed by a few seconds of rest, you will allow the heat caused by friction to dissipate.
