@awk A lot of people use their Dremel instead of something like this or, for their pets, something like PediPaws. The Dremel is stronger, has more attachments, and isn’t as loud for a lot of pets.
For people, some use it on their feet to get rid of callouses, etc.
This will be VERY useful for my boyfriend’s feet! He doesn’t do a lot of weight bearing because of his disability, and so he doesn’t really rub off the dead skin cells in the process of walking that most people do. My mom had something similar back in the 90s i kept forgetting I wanted to get him, fabulous choice, Meh.
I’d never use this on my actual nails. Fine for calluses and what not. You shouldn’t ever buff the top of your nail because you’re removing layers and making it very weak. Best thing I can ever recommend to anyone for a manicure/pedicure is a glass nail file.

I’ve had the same one for years and it doesn’t get dull. It also helps the layers at the end of your nails from separating unlike emory or metal files.
@moondrake@Tadlem43 I suppose it’s the super fine texture of the glass. It removes material quickly if you’re trying to file them shorter, but the actual feel of the glass with your finger tips is smoother than any emory file I’ve felt. Most bloggers and YouTube nail artists swear by them. I just don’t recommend the ones from the dollar store because the texture is rougher. I noticed a huge difference when I switched to them from emory. I carry a small emory file in my wallet when I’m at work, but one of the first things I do when I get home is to use the glass file to smooth whichever nail I’ve previously filed.
The NailTek brand is usually around $15-20 at a store like Ulta. I found my first one for $3 at some discount store. When I lost it I was really upset. I ended up buying my current one on eBay for $8. There are other glass ones that work fine… But I like the case that the NailTek comes in. They are glass, so they can break if you drop them. I’ve dropped mine inside the case a few times and it survived.
