What’s Your Favourite Nail Shape and Length?

April 21, 2015

There is a poll embedded into this post.

I thought it might be fun to see what you guys think about nail lengths and shapes. I myself often go through ‘nail identity crisis’. Having been predominantly square for approximately two years I recently changed to rounded, and now they have grown out I have these cute little baby almonds.

You know what I’m thinking though. While my almonds are great for nail art, and they feel a little sexier, they are hard to maintain. They require more ‘upkeep’, and they get dirty, blurrkkk. And I just don’t think they make swatches look as ‘clean’.

    I must admit when i saw your new shape i went “NOooooo” I love your squares and do agree that it makes your swatches look ‘cleaner’ than other bloggers. But maybe its just me, I have been loathing googling polish images and seeing all the ’roundies’, they make me skin crawly. But i must also say that your rounds are the ‘best of a bad bunch’ and didn’t make my skin crawl. You just must have magical phalanges that always look good. And yes, i am secretly hoping your squares come back soon, yours and ‘thepolishaholic’s’ swatches are the only ones i like looking at. I’ll get down off my soap box now, hehe, Dawnxx

  • I am the opposite! I adore your beautifully shaped rounds. They are soothing on the eye, elegant, and less harsh-looking than squares to me. But your nails are so pretty they will look good with any shape.

    I try to have square nails, but I keep breaking corners and ending up with squovals and rounds.

  • Squovals are definitely my favourite, and medium length. That’s what I’m aiming for if I ever manage to grow them again. I really like all the swatches you’ve shown – all shapes seem to look good on your fingers.

    I’m a squoval girl. Easier to maintain and get some length into. I prefer a bit of length when I look at a swatch too. I currently have two nubs and three medium length squovals on each hand – definitely prefer the latter πŸ˜‰
