What is a finish nail?

Finish nails act as the fasteners while offering a decorative effect. According to their functions and distinctive appearance, people gave these nails many aliases such as lost-head nails, brad nails, headless nails, furniture nails and bullet nails. The upholstery finishing nails are made of tough & slender steel wires. The finished product has a small globular head that is only slightly larger than the shank. When driven into the wood, it is slightly beneath the surface, then covered with putty or other paint you like. Therefore, finishing nails are visually unappealing in interior decorations, furniture making and other finish works where modification surface is needed.

What is the difference between a Brad and finish nails?

Brad nails are formed from a fine, 18-gauge wire, so they are smaller in diameter than finish nails and typically have less holding strength. They're better suited for tasks like light decorative trim and molding, panel installation and crafts. Their size also helps prevent surface splitting, which can occur if the fastener is too large for the material it's being driven into. 

One of the benefits to an 18-gauge brad is its size. Thanks to a smaller head and diameter, brad nails are easier to conceal in small pieces of wood trim. With a smaller head size, it's possible that the insertion point may not even need to be concealed with wood putty. In other words, 18-gauge brad nails provide a cleaner look than a finish nail without extra touch-up involved.


Finish nails are made from heavier 15- or 16-gauge wire, which means they can handle a greater payload. For larger trim, such as baseboards or crown molding, a finish nail is more suitable. A finish nail offers increased support and withdrawal resistance versus the brad nail, making it the better choice when installing larger trim and woodwork.

Because it leaves a more visible hole in the surface, a fully driven finish nail almost always requires followup attention—which includes being puttied over to conceal the "shiner" (the exposed insertion point of a nail).
