From Square to Flare: Every Nail Shape You Need to Know
We all know that the most important — and fun — step to doing your nails (or, better yet, getting them done) is choosing a color. But if you're looking for ultimate creative freedom, then you should be adding another step — and decision — to your manicure routine: choosing a shape.
Most everyone has rocked a squoval or rounded nail at one time or another, but you may not be aware that the file options extend far beyond the basics. Shapes including the stiletto, ballerina, and flare are making waves in the beauty community and offering another level of customization that we should all be taking advantage of.
One of the major hotbeds for nail shape experimentation is Instagram, with expert nail artists like Miss Pop leading the charge toward a progressive space for this type of beauty. We've enlisted her help to provide you with the ultimate nail shape guide, filled with tips, tricks, and reasons you should look beyond the classic file styles.
