Ahh that's a great video! Interesting. Thanks for posting.
I also tilt the file at an angle to the nail (basically filing slightly underneath the hook). Once removed, I then finish filing with the file perpendicular to nail. This helps to not remove any more than absolutely necessary. Also find filing them really really short once in a while helps restore strength to it once it gets really weak.CactusWren wrote: ↑Fri Mar 16, 2018 4:02 pmMy i and m fingers get a little hooked. What I do is file them at a very shallow angle--as close to 180 as you can get. It's like trying to file the dipped part itself away. I like the shape of the nail itself follow the shape of the fingertip. That seems to work okay.
Great idea!georgemarousi wrote: ↑Fri Mar 16, 2018 1:51 pmJust to mention an alternative to the spoon and heat method;
I use for sometime a womans hair curling iron !
( you just have to remove the plastic at the end of the cylinder .. that's where the finger goes, and the nail above the cylinder )
principles are the same, only you dont risk overheating, as these accessories reach up to a specific (hair safe ) temperature
I am very satisfied to the moment.
