Below are some tips on how to correctly file nails and prevent friction burns or damage.
Full Length Of The File, this helps in doing filing correctly and also keeps
your nail file from having worn spots.
Your File At The Very End
Correct filing will be in an "X" on the
nail. File diagonally across or diagonally down the surface of the
nail. This is the correct way to file.
Do not file the "X" one side at a
time...go in one direction in long strokes then go in the other direction in
long strokes. Remember to use your wrist!
NEVER FILE GOING BACK AND FORTH...USE LONG STROKES INSTEAD
mentioned above you need to use then entire file when filing. Lay file
on nail do a long stroke the length of the file....lift file and
repeat the first step. Going back and forth will cause damage and get
minimal results. Going back and forth will also cause your hand to
ache and could even cause damage or trauma to the nail.
file flat .....Don't Angle Your File
