    i see, but i also heard that it is not advisible to buff nail surface too often as they will damage nails in the long run?

      If buff to smoothen nails should be ok cos only lightly buff for a short while. If buff to make nails shine is not good. cos those buffing requires more strength & longer time to buff till the nails shine. It actually thin the nails if do it too often. Doing it abt once a mth will be ok.

        that's funny. i was told differently.

        buffing to make the nails smooth, getting rid of ridges and stains etc will thin the nails if done too often. think exfoliation or sanding. this i was told not to do as often.

        however buffing for shine won't make the nails thinner. i was told i can do this as often as i like.

        "shine buffers" are usually soft eg. chamois.
        the more abrasive smoothening buffers are rougher, more sandpaper-like.

        made sense to me when i heard it. can anyone clarify?

          Not sure. Wasn't told that buffing to smoothen nails will thin the nails when I was doing my basic manicure course. Was only that that it's not good to buff & shine nails often.
