Nail Tips from Nikki

I never knew that your nails could split from emery boards!! I am buying a crystal file immediately - that might be what the problem is with mine which frustrates me to no end. Thanks Nikki!

  1. who knew! Thanks Miss Sarah x

  2. I've read that nails should always be filed in one direction, to prevent splitting. Yet manicurists saw away, side to side. What do you think?

  3. I know exactly what you mean. I really don't know. I will ask Nikki.

    Hi Sarah!
    With a crystal file you can file in any direction and saw side-to-side to your hearts content (I do!)
    I think filing in one direction is only neccessary with an ordinary file.

  5. I love crystal files. We gave them away at one of our fashion shows and I've never been able to find one as good as it since.
