Video: ❶ How To File Your Nails
To keep your nails beautiful and well-groomed, they need to be filed regularly. However, this should be done correctly, otherwise you can ruin the nail plate. It turns out that not everyone knows what are the techniques for the correct work with a nail file. Location: Location: Contrary to popular belief, nail files should only be filed dry. Otherwise, you can get such an unpleasant problem as delamination. Wash your hands and dry them thoroughly. Wait a few minutes. Before starting the procedure, you must remove the old varnish, if any.
When the nails are dry, you can start working. Naturally, you have to take the right tool. The most convenient and safe files are made of glass, they confidently push their metal rivals, as they do not injure the nails and wash well. When buying, pay attention to the stiffness indicator, which must be indicated on one side of the product.
If you have weak and brittle nails, then you need a file with hardness values from 320 to 400. The numbers 180-280 mean versatility, such a tool is suitable for almost everyone. But if the number is 80, the file can be used when you need to shorten artificial nails. The file can be of any shape, the main thing is that it is convenient for you to work with it.
File the nails with smooth movements from the side of the nail plate to the middle, at a slight angle. The main mistake that inexperienced "self-manicurists" make: too much pressure, which can lead to injury, and chaotic movements, which causes rapid delamination of the horny plate and loss of attractive appearance.
You need to work slowly, carefully. Try not to touch your skin. Do not file too short if you have had long nails before.
By the way, the rules are the same for everyone. Pay attention only to the rigidity of the files. As a rule, men have denser nails than women, which means that the tool is needed with sufficient rigidity. But in children, both the skin and the nails are very delicate, therefore they need the softest nail files.
