Step-By-Step Filing Enhancements

Postby jumpyg » Fri Jan 22, 2010 8:45 pm

One method for filing enhancements:

1: File one side wall
2: File other side wall
3. Shape free edge of the tip (i.e. oval, square, squoval etc)
4. Gently file the cuticle areas in long even strokes from the centre downwards
5. File cuticle areas on the other side
6. Create your ideal centre line by gently filing the nail from cuticle to free edge - file side to side while slowly moving downwards
7. As above
8. File from the left side up to the centre
9. File from the centre down to the right
10. Check your arch that it is in the correct position and sitting slightly higher on the nail
11. Check all angles of your enhancement and make sure you have a symmetrical shape on each side, a thin free edge and side walls with a slightly higher centre arch. Look at the underside of the nails and make sure your lengths are even and the free edges are consistent in shape

Lol.... gosh... is that a good thing? :lol:

I know everyone has their own method for filing so I encourage everyone to share their techniques. Sometimes it's really hard to explain techniques and pictures can say 1000 words. It actually took me a really long time to come up with a consistent filing technique that I felt comfortable with. Hopefully it might just give a few techs some ideas :D .

I think the Tut is great thanks Georgy. As a student I find filing hard. I basically just keep filing and hoping for the best :wink: then I file some more. Then the teacher tells me where it's wrong so I file some more. At the end I am dazed and confused and filing all over the place. :oops: Thanks for posting this it will help :)
