Bionic Tip: Precise nail filing

Here’s a quick tip from Bionic Beauty…
Do you have trouble filing your nails evenly?

Most of us have uneven nail beds (the part where the white tip meets the pink skin under your nail). Hence, when you’re filing, the automatic tendency is to shape to that curve. However, you can then end up with some nails squarish, other roundish, and others oval.

To avoid this common pitfall, simply file your nails before removing your polish! The nail polish blocks your sight line to the nail bed so you file based on shape alone.

If you’re someone who doesn’t paint your tips, practice filing based on shape alone… or just throw on a quick coat of polish just on the tips of your nails. Remove after filing and then follow with a good hand cream or oil (I recommend Jojoba Oil to strengthen nails and soften cuticles).
