Now that we've mastered the art of finding the right nude tones and nail magic tricks

Now that we've mastered the art of finding the right nude tones and nail magic tricks, the next salon challenge you'll face is picking a shape. Here her are few shape that you can prefer

Soft square

This shape is just like the square, but the edges are a lot softer. It's a good compromise between square and oval (obviously), and it's easy to maintain on shorter nails.

Round

Round nails for clients who tend to think of think of their fingers as short or chubby. Round and almond shapes elongate and makes hands look more slender.

Almond

Almond and oval nails are a very common pick for celebrities. With almond, the nail is slender on the sides and wide on the base, coming to a peak—reminiscent of an actual almond.

Oval

Oval is very similar to the shape of the almond, but the tip is soft and much more blunt. Sorry, nail biters—oval and almond shapes only work with longer nails.

Stiletto

A big misconception is that almond is stiletto, but the stiletto shape has a much more drastic point.

Plus, the stiletto is not possible on natural nails because they don't have enough strength to hold the shape, meaning that the nail might very well break off in a couple of hours. If you want this look, opt for nail enhancements.

Coffin

This shape is similar to stiletto, but with a squared off tip (that makes it look like a coffin, or in a slightly less macabre description—a ballerina slipper).

You can pull the coffin look off with a natural nail, but it will hold up a lot better with false nails.
