The right way to file your nails is by sawing them in one direction.

  1. The first step is to file your nails from one side to the center in a fluid motion. It will give a smooth edge in seconds. When you reach your perfect desired shape, move on to the other side. Do the same for this side also.
  2. Now, you can see the nail filings or feathers are still attached in the center of your nails. So now you have to remove them. For this, you should file under your nails from inside to outward direction. This will give you a smooth tip.
  3. Now, wipe your nails to remove the nail dust. Then apply cuticle oil to the cuticles. This will help to give strength to your nails.

These are the steps that you should follow accordingly to file your nails at home.
