That’s why we would like to help you out by presenting our Top 12 Electric Nail Files in 2020!

Let’s start with tone of the most budget options in this guide: a Fancii Professional Electric Manicure and Pedicure Nail File Set. This model has all the basic options covered: five interchangeable bits, portable design and only one speed available. The RPM parameter (rotations per minute) is unknown, and this information is now nowhere to be found yet we consider it quite low if compared to tabletop models. A unique feature of this e-file is an extra, built-in mini UV light nail dryer to help you fix your nail polish quickly whenever it’s necessary.

  • Type: Portable and cordless
  • Number of interchangeable attachments: 5
  • Speed: Not listed
  • Measurements: 6.5 x 1.1 x 1.1 inches
Pros
  • One button design
  • Lightweight
  • 18-month warranty
  • Mini-size
  • Available in two colours (silver and golden)
Cons
  • The RPM rate seems to be on the lower side
  • Might be not as sturdy as models listed below
  • Non-variable speed
  • The drill goes only in one direction

TouchBeauty Electric Nail File Set is very similar to the Fancii electric nail file presented above. Both are portable models which operate with batteries. There definitely are a few differences though. The first one is RPM listed by the manufacturer. Its low speed of only 9500 RPM makes it safe even for less experienced users, especially when compared to 35000 RPM speed of tabletop nail drills. This model comes with a 30-day full refund and 12-month warranty whereas the previously listed one came with an 18-month warranty. Both e-files come with five basic interchangeable attachments that make them suitable for both manicure and pedicure. We feel that the main difference is that TouchBeauty product complies with IC CE FCC Certification, RoHS and Safety Report.

  • Type: Portable and cordless
  • Number of interchangeable attachments: 5
  • Speed: 9500 RPM
  • Measurements: 2.2 x 2.2 x 7.4 inches
Pros
  • One button design
  • Lightweight
  • Comes with a 30-day full refund, and a 12-month warranty
  • Mini-size
  • Safe for less experienced users
  • Complies with IC CE FCC Certification, RoHS and Safety Report
  • Available in two colours (golden and purple)
Cons
  • More advanced users might find it too slow
  • Might be not as sturdy as the metal-bodied models listed below
  • Non-variable speed
  • The drill goes only in one direction

If you’re a more experienced nail drill user, you might look for features like the higher speed with adjustment and polarity (two-ways working drill), the TouchBeauty Electric Nail File 5in1 Kit certainly delivers! Except for the e-file, the package includes an owner’s manual, a handle holder, six sanding bands and six drill bits. Like most of the tabletop nail drills, this one is much sturdier than the portable model listed above. TouchBeauty’s tool seems to be prone to overheating so you should remember about taking regular, small breaks during your manicure or pedicure. Overall it’s a budget option worth of trying out.

  • Type: Tabletop
  • Number of interchangeable attachments: 6
  • Speed: 20000 RPM
  • Measurements: 10 x 6 x 2.75inches
Pros
  • Metal body
  • Speed adjustment
  • Low-noise
  • Suitable for both professional and home use
  • The drill works in both directions
Cons
  • Prone to overheating if used continuously without any break

9 AIRSEE, Portable Electric Nail Drill Professional Efile Nail Drill Kit

9 AIRSEE, Portable Electric Nail Drill Professional Efile Nail Drill Kit

Check on amazon.com

This model may seem tiny but it boasts both quality and versatility. With a body made of lightweight metal, it’s less prone to overheating providing up to 20minutes of continuous use. Unfortunately, the manufacturer didn’t list the information about the suitable break length. The Airsee e-file comes with eleven interchangeable bits which paired with 20000 RPM allows you to do any kind of manicure much faster than with the TouchBeuty (which is why we recommended it for beginners). This model doesn’t feature the speed control option which is why 20000RPM might be too rough for some of the users. What is interesting about this e-file is that it’s portable yet doesn’t need batteries to work – there is a power cord, so you don’t have to be afraid of batteries giving out in the midst of work.

  • Type: Portable with power cord
  • Number of interchangeable attachments: 11
  • Speed: 20000 RPM
  • Measurements: 7.1 x 4.8 x 2.1 inches
Pros
  • The drill works in both directions
  • Low noise
  • Low vibration
  • Low heat
Cons
  • Continuous use should not exceed 20 minutes (in order to protect the motor from overheating)
  • Non-variable speed

8 MelodySusie Professional Rechargeable 30000 rpm Nail Drill, Portable E-File

8 MelodySusie Professional Rechargeable 30000 rpm Nail Drill, Portable E-File

Check on amazon.com

At first glance, MelodySusie Professional Nail Drill may seem to be a classic tabletop, and yet it’s far from it! This e-file is a combination of best tabletop and portable models’ features. The main unit with a LED display serves both as a 2000mA battery (with 2-2.5 hours charging time) and speed regulator. The belt clip on the body case was quite a novelty for us – turns out you can hang this e-file on your waist! We strongly recommend this nail drill only for acrylic gels – even the manufacturer advises not to use this tool on your natural nails if you’re not a professional.

  • Type: Tabletop yet cordless and rechargeable
  • Number of interchangeable attachments: 6
  • Speed: 30000 RPM
  • Measurements: 7.1 x 4.8 x 2.1 inches
Pros
  • Aluminium alloy body
  • Speed adjustment
  • Comes with a handpiece holder, 6 bits, sanding band and user manual
  • LED display showing the RPM and battery life
  • 6-month warranty from the purchase date
  • Available in two colours (black and white)
  • Rechargeable
Cons
  • Continuous use should not exceed 20 minutes (to protect the motor from overheating)
  • May not be suited for continuous use in salons

7 Dong Guan, OVX Portable Electric Nail Drill File Machine

This electric nail drill also has a power cord however it’s attached to its pink, metal body. Hanging on the cord you can find a forward/off/reverse switch, so the drill does work in both directions. We found it very convenient as you don’t have to worry about recharging it. The OVX e-file is great for acrylic nails however with the 100-180 grit of interchangeable bits it can be too abrasive for natural nails. That’s a great budget option so please be aware of counterfeits in the market – these usually come with no logo on the body of the tool.

  • Type: Tabletop yet cordless and rechargeable
  • Number of interchangeable attachments: 6
  • Speed: 20000 RPM
  • Measurements: 5.75 x 5.55 x 2.75 inches

BabeNail e-file is another budget-friendly option if you’re looking for a portable and lightweight tool. Beautifully crafted, copper-tone body hides a powerful yet quiet motor of 22000 RPM. The speed can be controlled with a speed button, and we found it very useful that the manufacturer provides information that the maximum speed used on natural nails should not exceed 2000RPM. This e-file comes with sturdy, diamond bits that will last you long!

  • Speed: 22000 RPM

This e-file also has a built-in soft LED light and is available in six colours! One button controls both speed and direction of rotation. Even though its exact RPM parameters were not listed by manufacturer, we could tell it’s more powerful than Royal Angels Baby clippers. That’s why it might be more suitable for adults.
