Okey, one thing I find boring is shortening my nails. My nails are very hard and they grow fast. So it takes a long time to file them and I have to do it quite often. I can't have too long nails because it doesn't work for me when I am writing on a computer all day in my job.
Earlier I always used a glass file but now I have started using a sandpaper file with three steps from strong to fine. I start with the strong side and finish with the fine. I just goes quicker and my nails doesn't get bad from them.
I always trim my nails when I have nail polish on. Then I think it is easier to see how the shape turns out.
I buy my files at the Swedish beauty store Kicks (www.kicks.se).
