Choose the shape of your nails carefully

To highlight your hands, you should choose the filing according to your body shape. Thus, we will not offer the same shape to small, thick fingers as to long, very thin fingers. We will also take into account the texture of your nails. Pointed nails tend to be much more fragile and will only be recommended for people with very hard nails.
