What is a carbide nail drill bit?

As one of the most well known nail drill bits, carbide nail drill bits are made of carbide metal, which means they’re made to last! These nail drill bits are especially great for professionals and are typically used to remove, cut, and shape acrylics.

At Kiara Sky, we include an innovative x-cut design on our carbide nail drill bits. This gives nail technicians the ability to shave off products even easier (whether it’s dip powder, gel, or acrylic). Our carbide bits are also designed to cut smoothly clockwise, as well as counter-clockwise — making it perfect for right-handed and left-handed techs.

Your Kiara Sky Beyond Pro Portable Nail Drill comes with two exclusive drill bits to get you started creating fabulous designs! In the packaging for your new KS Drill, you’ll find a Fine Drill Bit and a Crystal Mandrel sanding bit! Your Crystal Mandrel bit is a size 3/32 so most sanding bands will fit perfectly!

Sanding bands are barrel-shaped bands that slip over the mandrel bit and are perfect for performing surface work and smoothing the nail bed. You will want to make sure you have a new band for each person since these bands cannot be disinfected.

How to properly sanitize your nail drill bits

It’s crucial to make sure your Kiara Sky metal carbide drill bits are sanitized after every service on a new client!

As we covered earlier, sanding bands for your crystal mandrel bit are single use and cannot be saved or reused.

After each use, clean your metal carbide bits to remove debris from the surface by washing with a small cleaning brush, soap and warm water. Follow by immersing in alcohol for 1-2 minutes. This will help to dissolve leftover product or nail tissue on the bits and prepare them for cleaning.

Be sure not to leave your bits soaking for too long as this could start to erode and remove the beautiful coating on your Kiara Sky drill bits!

After giving these bits a nice scrub and a quick soak in alcohol soak, immerse your bits in a liquid disinfectant or babicide for the amount of time marked on the label.

And there you have it! Squeaky clean and shining Kiara Sky nail drill bits that are as good as new for your next service.
