Oval nails are a great option for those who want to achieve an elongated look with their hands, creating a natural, yet elegant look. With rounded edges, your nails will last longer than squared nail shapes. This is a very sophisticated nail shape, so we recommend experimenting with darker shades of nail polish when picking this style.

Square nails are a modern choice that looks great on all types of hands and personalities, but they’re a particularly good option for those with thin fingers. The only downside of square nails is keeping their shape: their straight edges tend to slowly get rounded due to friction. So keeping a nail file in your purse is a great solution to always keep your nails looking sharp.
