Before you are going to your weekly manicure appointment, it is better to check out this ultimate nail shapes guide. Other than knowing what shapes work out the best, you could also save yourself money from unnecessary treatments.
So here is a thing when picking out a shape for your nails. You want to pick a shape that accentuates not only your nail length but also your finger shape and nail bed width. That much you probably have figured it out, but how exactly do you know?
Well, buckle up, because we are in for a ride!
First up, here are the complete list of nail shapes you usually found in nail shops:
A lot isn’t it? If you want to try everything once then more power to you! After all, there is no teacher better than experience.
However, if you are not so keen on experimenting, or simply do not have the budget to. That’s okay, that is why we are here! Today, we are going to cover some of the most common nail shapes and lay out what type of nails goes best with them.
Square shape is great for those with short nails and narrow nail beds. Moreover, square nails are unbelievably low-maintenance. The straight edges are a lot less likely to break. A pro-tip will match up your squares with a bold dark color.
Round shape is somewhat similar to the square one yet they have rounded edges instead of straight. We recommend this nail shape for those who think their fingers are short or chubby. The soft edges could elongate your nail beds and make them appear wider and slender. Generally, all colors should go well with this shape.
Stiletto shaped nails are uncannily popular among celebrities. The bottom part of the nails are pretty much the same with the previous two but with more drastic points on the tip. This is a fun shape to experiment with, meaning you could try it as long as you are confident enough. However, you should be mindful of them because stiletto nails are easy to break and will wear off only after a few hours.
