While color is queen when it comes to bold, beautiful, and polished manicures, shape and style play vital roles in completing a look you love. Explore some chic and stylish nail shapes and start planning out your next manicure today.


Round Nails

Round nails are a classic look that can help to make your fingers appear longer and slimmer, without being too long themselves. They can be playful or professional and are easy to maintain.

Square Nails

As the name would indicate, square nails are flat on top and take on the appearance of a square. They also look chic short, but are most flattering on women who already have slim fingers. If your nails break easily, this might be the right shape for you.

Oval Nails

Oval nails are a slightly extended version of round nails, and can help to make your fingers look longer. They are a good option for professional women who want to appear effortless chic at the office, and are also excellent for nail art and designs.

Almond Nails

Almond nails take the shape of slivered almonds and can help to make wider fingers appear narrow and slender. They are longer than certain other styles and pair well with neutral and professional tones.

Coffin Nails

A recent addition to modern nail art is the coffin-shaped nail. It’s also called the ballerina nail, because it takes on the shape of a coffin or ballet slipper. The look is chic and bold, but it’s vital that your nails are healthy and strong before you try this cut.

Stiletto Nails

Like the shoe, stiletto nails always make a statement. They are long and come to a sharp point at the end for a bold and chic look. These nails aren’t meant to be downplayed, so if you like bright colors, patterns, and art, stiletto nails might be a good choice.
