The abrasiveness of the baffle determines the hardness of the sides and indicates for which type of nails it is best used and what functions it performs. Polishing can take place with buffs of different abrasiveness. Depending on the abrasiveness there is the following classification:

- Abrasiveness 60-80 grits - used to perform pedicures or artificial nails. Processing with it is quite rough. Working with acrylics and polymer.
- The 100-150 grit abrasion is suitable for corrections prior to the application of gel nail polish. The 100-150 grit varieties are ideal for polishing nails and for treatment after extension.
- The 150-240 grit grade is used for filing the tip on natural nails or buffing artificial nails.
- Abrasion over 300 grit is the softest and finest. It is used for gentle polishing of natural nails to a natural gloss. This stone is used for conventional manicures.


Baffles are usually made in the form of three-dimensional, four-sided bars. What is the meaning of each side? Let's understand in order.

The first side is an ordinary file that allows you to shorten your nails or give them the desired shape.
The second side allows you to remove all irregularities and burrs from the nail plate.
The third side is for smoothing the nails and removing the smallest imperfections.
The fourth side is for buffing nails to a high gloss.
