Looking to give your nails a makeover? First, you need to choose the right nail shape for your fingers – And YouTube channel Beautips has got you covered!
Beautips uses a psychological approach to teach us how we can choose the right nail shape that fits our personality best.
First on the list are Round nails, it’s a universal nail shape said to represent women who are sweet and feminine. They give off a very casual and down-to-earth vibe.
The second is the Oval shape. It elongates the fingers and appears delicate. It represents stylish women who like to feel comfortable and keep things simple.
Third on the list is the Square shape. This nail shape is very practical and durable. Women who have square nails prefer convenience over external appearance.
Next is the Squoval, a combination of square and oval nails that’s perfect for the office. Women with squoval nails are assertive and show leadership qualities.
Then we have the Ballerina or Coffin nail shape. It’s the perfect choice for flirtatious, feminine, and stylish women who want their nails to appear dainty and practical.
Next, we have the Almond nail shape, a shape Beautips doesn’t recommend for women with fragile nails. Women with these nails are creative and innovative thinkers.
Last on the list is the Stiletto. Perfect for the real fashionistas out there. Because of its claw-like appearance, women with these nails have a coquettish nature.
Take this list with a grain of salt as it doesn’t represent all women out there. It is all but a guide that can help you choose your next nail shape.
“It’s a matter of style but you need to be practical too,” advises Beautips for women who can’t choose a nail shape.
