The ultimate nail shape dictionary comprises the following shapes;
1. Square Shape Nails:
This is a perfect square with no soft edges and perfect for those with short nails who aren’t into a round shapes.
2. Squoval Shape:
This is relatively similar to the square but with softer edge. It offers a perfect balance between square and oval and it’s easy to maintain on shorter nails.
3. Oval Shape:
Also, oval is very similar to the shape of the almond, but the tip is soft and much more blunt. The oval and almond shapes only work with longer nails.
4. Almond Shape:
Almond nail is slender on the sides and wide on the base, coming to a peak at the top.
5. Stiletto Shape:
The stiletto shape has a very drastic point and can work only with nail enhancements.
6. Coffin Shape:
This shape is similar to stiletto, but with a squared off tip. Although, you can pull the coffin look off with a natural nail, but it will hold up a lot better with false nails.
It’s very important you know your nail shapes, so as to be very creative about the particular one you need!
