7 different types of nail shapes - What is it?

Almond


After much disappointment in the past deciding which nail suits me best, Almond has been a personal favourite and more along the lines of the classical “round’ nail shape. These nails are suitable for people with short or long fingertips, however suggested for people with more small/narrow nail beds.


I recommend opting for a metallic colour or a bold polish to really show-off this shape. If you’re feeling bold, you can even try out the current trend of multi-colours nails – a different colour on each nail, but fit in the same colour scheme.


This shape has always been very feminine and glamorous; some might even suggest a classier look.


Square


Square-shaped nails are definitely very stylish, yet simple and low maintenance which is best when going for a bolder colour.


Nothing is set in stone and anything said does not mean this necessarily fits to you as a person, however this nail shape is suggested for people with longer fingertips and long narrow nail beds. I would have loved for someone to give me this advice before, as me and my short fingertips have made this mistake one too many times, they make your hands and fingers feel smaller and stubbier than they really are.


This shape is an all time favourite and looks amazing if suited to your hand shape.


Squoval


This is an interesting one because it’s firstly one which I’m sure by name is unfamiliar to a lot, however visually this shape of nail is more along the natural growth and appearance of a nail. This nail shape is suggested for all hand and nail bed types, because as mentioned this is how your nail, if never been manicured before will naturally grow and actually elongates them. This is just an iconic, natural and classic look. Looks best with a French manicure or with a natural, simple colour.


Stiletto


This nail is named Stiletto due to its iconic appearance of a pointed stiletto heel or pointed ballerina slipper. You can’t get more extra than this. These nails are loud, extra, hard to maintain and elongates your hands. These are used with the loudest statement of colour, or nail art you can think of.


Coffin


So here we go, these are very similar to the stiletto nail shape. They are a statement shape but maybe a little more on the natural side compared to the stiletto, also this shape is quite similar to the Squoval in the sense that it suits most hands if included with narrow and long nail beds.


Oval


The Oval Shape is a very simple yet classic and chic look. It’s your boss lady, classic keyboard-typing look.


This nail is more suited to people with shorter hands, and wider nail beds and allows a sort of illusion that your fingers seem longer than they are.


This alongside the almond shaped nail, are confidence boosters. Small hands, short finger tips, wide nails and stubby fingers are something a lot of women have, and with the expressive use of your hands and the fact that you use your hands for everything, nails like these can give you that extra set of confidence to be expressive and not shy away from who you are or what assets you hold within you. Nothing is a negative, everything’s an asset.


Round


Round is suggested for people with shorter fingertips and nail beds, because it elongates them. This is again a very natural, classic and chic look. Best suited with any shade of polish.
