What is your purpose for wanting to step it up to 25NL? If it is to make more money you should take your "calculated risk" money and spread it to multiple tables.
Start with 2-3 tables at once and slowly try to get to where you are playing 4-5 tables at once.
In the meantime practice removing leaks from your game whenever you can.
Hone your skills at multiple 10NL games and you should see a subtle rise in your hourly take vs. hoping to hit it big with BIG sessions on BIGGER tables.
Bigger tables have better players (not a little better, a LOT) and richer fish (guys who play poorly or just for fun but sit on thousands of dollars so it just doesn't matter to them to chase two streets for example). That is not really a good formula for you my friend. Until your bankroll supports the swings of winning/LOSING hundreds of dollars in a session I would not take a jump.

Your next step is to play multi-table until your brain goes on auto-pilot.
Soon you will be folding pocket queens OOP on one table so that you can focus on 67c on the button on another table. When that day comes, I say you are ready.
