What Are the Different Nail Shapes?

It's all very well to have a beautiful manicure, but you still need to know how to choose the right nail shape.

Indeed, over the years the shapes of nails that are in fashion differ.

So here is a little trick to have hands at the top of the top.

1. The square nail shape

Square nails are characterized by a square shape with straight corners. Ideal for: Women who don't want to maintain their manicure too much. If you have long, narrow nails and like short nails, this shape is for you. Do you like very long nails? Good news: long, square nails are the perfect shape for trendy shades and nail art.

2. The Round Nail Shape

Round nails are characterized by a soft rounded shape.

Ideal for: Anyone who thinks their fingers are short and thick. This shape elongates your fingers, making them appear thinner, and also makes wide nail beds appear thinner.

Round nails can be more fragile than other nail shapes and require special care to avoid breakage.

The perfect shade: This is a shape that highlights all shades, so feel free to go for the classic Big Apple Red.

3. Oval nail shapes

Oval nails have an elongated egg shape. This shape is especially suitable for people with long, slender fingers, as it can help soften the hands. However, you should be careful not to round the corners of the nails too much, which can cause ingrown toenails.

4. Almond nail shape

Almond nails have a pointed, elongated shape with rounded corners. This shape is also suitable for people with long, thin fingers, but it can be more difficult to maintain than other nail shapes. Almond nails can also be more prone to breakage, so it's important to strengthen them regularly.

5. Stiletto nail shape

Stiletto nails are characterized by a pointed shape at the tip. This shape may look elegant, but it can also be difficult to maintain and cause problems with ingrown toenails. Tapered nails are better suited for special occasions than for everyday use.

6. Ballerina nail shape

Ideal for: Nail extension enthusiasts as this shape requires salon maintenance. Long, thin and square at the tip, it is suitable for long, thin fingers and square cuticles. This shape is called ballerina because the tips resemble a ballet shoe. Looking for something a little sharper? Try a cousin shape: coffin nails. This shape is slightly more angular than ballerina nails and less rounded on the sides of the nail.

The perfect shade: You are #OPIObsessed

It's important to note that the shape of your nails can be influenced by factors such as genetics, diet, diseases and nail care habits. If you have nail problems, it is recommended that you consult a dermatologist or podiatrist.
