I've gotten into fingerstyle acoustic guitar a few months ago, after a few years of electric guitar playing. I've started growing out my thumb nail, but I realize that I have no idea how I'm supposed to file it to get a good shape. Now matter how much I try, it seems certain areas are still uneven, and I don't even know how to fix the left side of the nail, which seems to be curving in. Could someone please explain to me how I'm supposed to grow it out properly? Any help is appreciated.

wait... curving in where?

The thumb nail should just be rounded like if you were to grow your other nails. Just make sure that the edge doesn't grow out. Catching the side edge of your nail against a string can hurt.
