Most Popular Nail Shapes You Can Try

In a world where beauty trends keep evolving on weekly basis, making a choice can become such a herculean task. Same also goes with nails. It is no longer a choice between square or round nails. With a number of nail shapes in the book, here is a guide on the most popular nail shapes of the moment.

Square

square nails are nail shapes that are flat on top but sharp at the corners. They look square in appearance. This shape goes for those long narrow nail beds.

Round nails

round nails start with straight sides but curve at the edge. This shape follows the natural shape of the fingertips. People who love short nails favour this shape.

Square oval or squoval

this nail shape retains the flat edge of the square but without the sharp corners. The resultant shape is quite flattering.

Oval

oval nails are filed down on the sides. The curve is more extreme so it makes the finger look slender and long.

Almond

like oval nails, almond nails are filed down the sides. The nail wall is tapered to end in a round peak similar to the shape of an almond.

Coffin/ballerina

this style got its name because of its resemblance to the angular shape of a coffin or a ballet shoe

Lipstick

this nail shape resembles the cut angle of a fresh tube of lipstick. This squared nail style slants diagonally in a unique way.
