Step 2: Clip, File and Shape

Using toenail clippers, carefully cut your toenails so they are an even length, holding the clippers at the same angle the whole time.

Then use a nail file positioned just under the nail to file rough edges slowly. Shape the corners to your preference – either square or more rounded. If you choose a rounded shape, however, beware: The shape can make you more susceptible to developing painful ingrown toenails.

3. Soak and Relax

Fill a tub with warm water and add Epsom salts and your favorite aromatic oils or a ready-made beauty bath soak from your local bath and body store. Sit back and relax for five minutes, letting your skin soften and your mind melt a little bit.
