Should you cut or file your nails?

To have perfect hands, we often take care of our nails with professional manicure set. But is it better to file them or cut them? Follow our pro tips.

If they are soft, you can cut them with scissors. Most important of all, they won’t be assaulted by the cut because they are more flexible and won’t break.

On the other hand, if they are thick, hard and too dry, nail clippers and scissors will be the worst option. This could crush the nail and twist it, which amounts to the The scales that make it up would then be raised and this would cause the nail to split.
