Always file nails BEFORE bathing or soaking them to prevent ragged edges and damage to the nail tip. Use an emery board only to file nails. Coarser boards are for acrylic nails. Move the file in one direction only. Do not use a back and forth motion which will create ragged edges. Remove all dust and bits of filed away nail before polishing.
