In brief: Acrylic nails

Because acrylic nails are much stronger than natural fingernails, you'll need to use a coarser than average emery board or nail file.
If you don't already have one, get a high-grit (100-180 grit) emery board or nail file, and also have a regular grit emery board on hand. Yes, acrylic nails are safe to file.
