I might have the weakest, wimpiest nails on the planet. They shred, flake, peel and rip—and every time I resort to the sealing properties of nail polish, when I remove said polish (or let's face it, let it chip off) I'm left with an even worse situation than I started with. It's a problem.

Luckily I got a great tip from Tweezerman's publicist last week that using a porcelain nail file (such as this one from Tweezerman, natch) actually seals your nails so they don't tear or shred. Of course, you also need to file in one direction only—but you knew that already, right?

P.S. This Tweezerman file is so elegant, it actually won a design award in Germany. And it lasts forever...
