Best nail files for gel nails

I get regular gel manicures but I find that if I get a snag in the polish, my nail inevitably breaks further than it would than if I manage to get to it and file down.

I don't really think my current nail files are the best thing for a filing a nail with gel polish - can anyone recommend me one which will do the job and prolong my manicure? Thanks.

Two things you need here (I get gel nails done each month and they last four weeks).

Use any nail file - makes no difference to me
Then.... add a coat of clean polish over the top to protect them. Without this your newly filed nails are unprotected as you’ve broken the seal that keeps them from chipping. I use the clear Barry M gelly one. It’s super!
