The different nail shapes

By: Maryton

Round, square, rounded square, almond-shaped nails… It’s difficult to navigate the different possible nail shapes. To help you, here are some tips from the nail supply expert Maryton to help you choose the right nail shapes!

The round nail shape

Round nails have a free edge in the shape of an arc. This shape is ideal for short nails, because the round takes on an oval appearance and gives a harmonious finish. However, it is much more suitable for hands with long and thin fingers with a fairly long plate. It may also suit you if the edges of your plate are parallel or not completely straight.

The square nail shape

The square shape is considered sophisticated and is particularly suitable for a French manicure. It suits most hands, because it elongates the fingers, but it is true that it is more suitable for nails with very straight parallels. It can be worn on both short and long nails.

Oval nail shape

As for oval nails, the parallels are straight, then round to form a rounded tip. The shape is easy to wear and suitable for all nails.

The almond nail shape

The almond shape is a more pronounced oval. The parallels move towards the center of the nail with more clarity and the tip is always rounded. This shape looks very pretty on long nails, and it is perfect for nails that are tapering as well as nails whose edges are not parallel.

The pointed nail shape (or stiletto)

The stiletto nail shape brings a truly original look to your manicure, but be aware that it can only be achieved on very long nails. It is best suited to long hands and thin fingers, but it can also flatter smaller hands.

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure sets to care for your nails.
