Cut away extra nail length with a sharp nail clipper if necessary, then use a file to shape your nails. On hands, remember to stroke the file across nails in one direction at a time, as sawing back and forth can create roughness and tears. To seal the nail edges, use a fine grit ceramic file, which will leave them snag-free.
