Choosing The Right Shape For Your Nails
The shape of your nails can accentuate your look and enhance your personality. This means that you need to be careful so as to choose ideal nail shape that will work best on your hands and match your lifestyle. Every lady has a specific type of nail shape that matches their tastes and preferences. While the oval nail shape seems to be in fashion, it is not the signature shape for every woman. Below are some quick tips to help you in determining the best nail shape whether you are doing your nails in the salon or at home.
Look at the Shape of the Half-Moon
Near your cuticle lies the small-half moon shape which is visible when you remove your polish. If this shape is curved then your nails will look excellent with an oval nail shape and rounded tips. In the event the half-moon is flat shaped, you should opt for a square nail shape. There are situations where the shape lies somewhere between a curve and a flat shape; in this case you can try a mix of both oval and square.
Look at Your Nail Beds
Your nail beds can be short and wide or long enough to cover your fingertips. In either case, a square shape with rounded edges can make your nails attractive. For long and narrow nail beds, a square shape with sharper edges will make the nails standout. Natural oval nail beds can be accentuated with a round-edged oval nail shape.
The Strength of Your Nails
A square shape is a good choice for nails that tend to break easily. On the other hand if you want an oval shape, ensure that you go for square sides and a rounded tip. This will make the nails strong and less likely to break.
In addition to the above tips, the length of the nails should also determine the shape that you settle for. If your nails are longer and you do outdoor work frequently, you should either trim them so that they can be smaller or opt for a squoval shape.
