Wednesday’s Beauty Tip



Beauty Tip of The Week

FILING NAILS!!


 I like to file my nails with nail polish still on; not when freshly painted but before I remove the old polish. I do this because I find it the easiest way to shape them evenly and the way I want them.  When I file them without any polish on I tend to follow my nail beds and the white tip of the nail (that are not always even), then I end up having uneven lengths and different shapes.  I know this is different from the way most of you probably have been taught to file your nails, but if you give it a try you might see a difference  
Try to use a glass nail file as opposed to the regular ones. Glass files cause less tears and chips in your nails. Always file in one direction only and don’t over file your nails.

  1. Great advice. I file my nails whenever. if there is a jagged edge it is going to bother me and then i end up gnawing away at it until I have pretty much hit the nail bed.

  3. Girl your nails look amazing! This is s greta tip. I always file my nails after I remove the old nail polish because this is the way it was done when I used to get professional manicures. I am definitely going to try doing it this new way. I bet it is a lot easier to shape them with the color still on too. Thanks doll!

  6. Aw! Thanks Kim, but I wish those were my nails...lol...I just found that pic somewhere. But filing with the nail polish still on does work (for me anyway). Let me know what you think if you try it.

  7. Very interesting tip! I may give it a try, my nails don't file smoothly at all. I feel kind of dumb, but I didn't realize there were glass files......am I that clueless? smh.......

  8. No silly!! Your not dumb, it isn't easy to file your nails evenly. I have a hard time no matter what but I do feel like filing them with the polish on helps to make them even. I honestly didn't buy my first glass filer until last year lol.
