How to file and shape your nails

Cover your eyes, I'm naked. I'm also yellow - yes, I know - and if I had a dollar for every time someone told me my yellow nails are "gross" or "unhealthy" then I'd be one rich bitch. Please watch this video on what it actually means when you're a serial nail polisher and your nails are yellow (assuming you don't actually have related health problems that may cause yellow nails) if that was on the tip of your tongue.

Moving on to the topic of the day, how to file your nails! Watch the video below because if a picture says 1,000 words, then a video says, like, 1,000,000, according to my quick math.

Please see the YouTube video description for all links to articles mentioned, so much good information in there!
