How to Pick the Best Nail Shape for Your Hands
Getting a manicure is one of the ultimate self-care activities, like taking a bath or practicing some aromatherapy, but that's not to say it doesn't require some hard decisions. Aside from which color you choose (obviously important), your nail shape will significantly impact the final look of your mani. Knowing the various nail shapes isn't the only challenge, either—you also have to figure out which one is right for you. While some shapes can make your fingers look longer, others can make them look wider or more natural.
So how's a girl to choose? According to experts, the best shape for you depends on the shape and length of your fingers. Typically, your nail shape should follow the natural shape of your cuticle line and accentuate your natural finger shape. To eliminate confusion at your next nail appointment (whether that's with just yourself or a professional manicurist), we spoke with nail artists and manicure experts and asked them to share some nail shape knowledge.
