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?


  1. I've been trying to change my nails to this shape forever just can't seem to get the length to do it. Would love to hear any tips you pick up.

  2. I normally have square nails but I definitely perferring the almond shaped nails at the moment. Not so much of the claw/ lady gaga esq nails. Also you manicure yours so nicely x

  3. I always like mine square but I must admit I like the look of almond nails.

  4. I'm trying to grow my nails to this shape. It's very nguerriero19. <3

  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 :)

  10. you have the nicest nails in all your posts, these are so nice! x


  11. I wish I had the precision to manicure my own nails this perfectly, but every time it ends up a messy mush! xx
