Tip No. 1: Keep a file wherever you go.
Kim visits a nail salon regularly, but she admits that she does the filing herself because she wants her nails perfectly square. In fact, she carries a file everywhere she goes. She also admits that she is nervous whenever her manicurist is not available, and she has to be serviced by another person because she might end up offending her if she does the filing herself. According to one expert nail technician, it is fine to do the shaping other fix yourself just make sure you know how to prevent breakage. Filing the sides of the nails when it is not yet long enough can weaken the nails.

If you are to wear your engagement ring, make sure that it is not too loud to cover the beauty of a gigantic diamond ring.
