5. File Nails

In getting my nails all to a similar length, I typically match the length of the shortest (or next to shortest) nail. The bottom of the nails should be filed in a horizontal position, from edge to edge.

Going any other direction is ok and may be necessary, but keep in mind any direction other than horizontal can weaken the nails. After the length is fine, I then take a very delicate file and file the top of the nails to create a smooth surface. I have a nail file block, which I love because it makes the top of the nails shiny, almost like you have a coat of polish on them.
