*  What is nail drill? Sounds ominous! It is similar to a dental drill, but generally feels like a vibration or sometimes tickling! Depending on which layer of the toenail is thickened, this can greatly reduce the thickness of the nail (if top layer is thickened), or reduce nail minorly-moderately if the top layer is normal, but deeper layer is thickened
