Step 2 : Clip 

Cut nails straight across with a nail clipper or scissor. Be careful not to cut below the fingertip as it may cause sensitivity or ingrown nails.

Step 3 : Shape and Smooth 

File sharp corners and edges. Begin with the rough side of the file to shape nails, then smooth and seal nail edges with the finer grit side. File in one direction instead of sawing back and forth to avoid splitting of nails. Nails should be square with a slightly rounded corner.

Step 5 : Snip

Rockhard Nipper

Remove hangnails and dead skin around the nail with a cuticle nipper. Do not cut live skin.

 

Step 6 : Remove and Smooth 

While skin is moist, gently draw the callus shaver across calluses in a light shaving motion to remove thin layers of dead skin. If you prefer not to use a blade, you can use a callus rasp or stone. First remove calluses with the coarse side and then use the fine side to smooth skin and rough spots on the bottoms of feet, back of heels and between toes.

Pedicure Tip

 

To help eliminate the painful irritation of ingrown toenails follow these easy steps:

  • File top of nail to reduce thickness before bathing.

 

  • After bathing and while nails are soft, use a Clipper to trim nail. Cut in a number of small cuts rather than a large single cut.

  • Gently slide our Ingrown Toenail File under nail. File works in reverse and will shave under nail as you pull out and up.
