How to file a nail without a file

Do not you hate when you break or hook a nail? It is annoying and dangerous. Anyone who has cut a nose with a rough nail knows this. Don't even get close to the eye – ah! No file – no problem. A few years ago I learned how to care for a rough nail without a file. Call me cheap or call me brilliant – I don't care. My methods work.

The easiest way if you are staying at a hotel is to find an alternative to a nail file. And isn't it necessary when you need a file – away from home? He is hiding in that nice big bathroom that doesn't need to be cleaned. It comes in many colors and many sizes. It always works and will not only cure rough edges, but also help to change the shape of the nail. The shower tile, or more precisely, the grout between the tiles, is wonderful. All you need to do is rub your nail along the line of grout and viola – again smoothly. You can drive a car or take up this obstacle in the shower – everything that suits you. Best of all – you know, the shower is cleaned daily. Of course, it works in your own soul if you cannot find the file.

Another non-file approach, which I find useful, is the underside of tables or stone worktops. One is a tree, one is a stone. Or will work as a last resort. Usually the tops of both are smooth, like glass. But the bottom – a goldmine. File away This will allow you to do no harm to yourself until you find the file.

Just pick clean places to file your nails. Do not try these tricks in the subway or in the bathroom of the plane. You never know what will work. Remember, you do not need a nail file.
