If you’re looking to grow out your natural nails, this is the best shape to choose. The long oval shape is more utilitarian than others, since the edges are least prone to breaking when you go about your daily life – from texting and washing dishes, to reaching into your bag to grab your keys. It’s also the easiest to maintain in the long term.
Celebrities love this option to bring a sense of glamour to the red carpet and Lippmann has become known for her rendition. “Almond nails are very slenderizing, quite sexy and still keep your nails strong,” she says. The go-to for most European women, almond nails are also known to show off jewelry with style. “To me, this is the chicest shape,” adds Lippmann.
Almond nails are easy enough to use. You can buy fake nails in this shape from a beauty store, a drug store, or any super store such as Target or Walmart. Check the beauty section. Once you get them, they will have instructions on how to apply them. Then, try one of these ideas to decorate them.
