Wave File 100/100 - Preliminary Shaping
Step #1 – Free Edge: Keep file straight, use a lot of support. This is to start the basic shape of the nail. Turn hand around. To achieve a hard square shape, ensure file is perpendicular to the free edge.
Step #2 – Side Walls: Lock elbow to your side. Keeping the file parallel with the finger, remove any excess bulk. Remember, the file only needs to touch what needs to be removed.
Step #3 – Lower Arch: Looking at the nail from the side, remove any product that is dropping down. Start from outer edge and drive the file back into the nail groove
