One Twitter user has gone viral after sharing a surprisingly simple beauty hack that has (we hate to admit it) completely changed life as we know it.
Not to sound too dramatic, but did you know that there’s a whole other layer beneath your favourite nail file?

The post soon went viral amassing over 5,000 comments within a mere matter of hours, as fellow Twitter users wasted no time in expressing their disbelief.
One simply replied to the post: “Exactly right now old”.
