Which shape to choose for your nails?
Finding the perfect nail shape is always a bit complicated. Because between the trends of the moment, the shape of your hand, your manicure and quite simply your mood: it is difficult to find the right balance. Here are a few things to know, just to help you make your choice.
- The round nail is all good
For a natural look, on short nails, opt for the round shape. This tried-and-true shape is easy to maintain and everyone loves it.
- The oval nail for a hairy manicure
A slight taper starting from the sides to lengthen the finger is always flattering. It’s like putting your nails on stiletto heels.
- The square nail for slender fingers
A clean end and straight sides offer a striking effect on slender fingers. For a perfect square, position your nail file perpendicular to the nail.
- The rounded square nail, we say yes!
The combination of the elegance of an oval nail and the longevity of a square shape. Like the round shape, this one is suitable for all types of fingers.
- The pointed nail, at the forefront of fashion
This extremely tapered nail shape immediately elongates each finger. It’s a surefire way to elevate an edgy manicure.
