almond shaped nails


Out with the squoval shape and in with the almond. I've been wearing my nails in a squarish shape for as long as I can remember and as often as I change my nail polish colour I've never actually played around with the shape until now. It turns out that I much prefer this shape on my nails and find that it suits my hands much more, my nails look much more feminine and elegant which I love. I've tried to grow my nails long enough to achieve the almond shape but I think once they are longer they will look much better. I went for a traditional French tip and used a nail art paint which worked really well as it comes with a thin brush so creates a sharp and precise line.


 What is your favourite nail shape?

  5. I always have a square shape for my nails - but that is purely because it's the natural shape for my nails, I don't do a thing to them. I think I'll try almond shape though, it looks cute though x

  6. I think I'm still more of a fan of the squarish shape, but having said that this looks really good!
    I think you're right, it just depends on what suits you individually

  7. I like that oval shape as well but I don't think it suits me; I have very long, skinny fingers and I end up looking like a witch! I just round the corners a little but sadly, I can't get away with the full-on almond shape...

  8. I really like the almond shaped nails too but I love the pointy ones that have become more popular recently. x

  9. I like short rounded nails, I'm not a big fan of the super long pointy nails that have been a big trend lately :)
