File and Shape the Right Way
A natural nail should be shaped to mirror the shape of your cuticle. This is the natural shape the nail grows and will keep the structure of the nail intact. Breaking, cracking or splitting happens when the nail shape is altered. Always file in one direction; Never saw back and forth on the nail as this will shred the very delicate keratin layers of the nail, causing chipping and nail peeling!
