Don’t use Nail Files that are too rough!
If you do your own manicures or in the event a nail starts ‘catching’ in the threads of your clothes, you’ll need a decent nail file to shape and smooth the tips of your fingernails.
I’m not going to go into great depth about what files to use (you can read my previous blog post about nail files for that) but rather to advise you on the ‘grit’ or degree of roughness. The more grit (tiny sand-like particles) the finer the grit and the smoother the finish.
I recommend nothing lower than a 240 grit file – any lower would be far too rough for regular use and will tear and damage the nail surfaces.
