Choosing the nail type that fits you best is sometimes a tough task. How do you decide which nail shape is right for you? Everyone has different responsibilities in their personal and work lives that sometimes dictate sacrificing the style you really want for the job you need. So take a look at the activities you do, the work yo do, the  overall look of how you want your nails to look and what style of nails do you have to begin with. You just to ask yourself some basic questions like, what is the shape of your nail beds? Are your fingers long or short? Do you want to have nails all the time or is this temporary? Are they for looks or for every day?
If you are still not sure, please consult a professional nail technician for their input. They will be able to guide to to getting a magnificent look.  Here are a couple of ideas, if your nail beds are wide, try a squoval shape. If they’re narrow, try a sharp square shape to widen and strengthen. If you shorter nails, a rounded shape is your best bet for low-maintenance style. Or you can be a diva, like me and have as long of nails as you wish and you find a way to do everything you need to do. As your nails grow, so do you.
Here are some of the most common styles that are done in most salons. Hopefully this will help you in deciding what nail shape fits best with your busy lifestyle.

1:  Square Shape

The square shape is ideal for a people with a bigger nail bed (it tends to make smaller nail beds look shorter and wider). To create this timeless shape, file the side walls straight and make sure they’re perpendicular to the free edge of the nail. Once you’ve gotten the square shape you desire,  angle your emery board and bevel the nail slightly.

2:  Square Oval Shape (Squoval)

Combining the elegance of the oval shape with the strength of the square one, the squoval has become a popular nail shape for most fingers. It is far more flattering and common on most types hands especially if you are unsure what style does fit you best. It is both attractive and classy so it is good for people of all types of professions. First begin with a square with straight and even side walls. File the corners until your free edge is rounded and beveled. Remember, you still want strong side supports so don’t go overboard on the filing.

3:  Oval Shape

The tapered side walls of the oval create an elegant shape for women. Oval shapes flatter both wide and narrow nail beds, and add length with a graceful tip. Achieving the perfect oval nail shape is very easy.  First file side walls straight to make sure they’re even. Then, shape the side walls into a rounded oval shape, making sure the angles are even.

4: Round Shape

The round shape is by far the most conservative nail shape of the bunch, it is also ideal for men and women alike who like to maintain short nails. This shape flatters wide nails, and gives the illusion of a thinner nail bed. File the side walls straight like a square, then round the free edge into that perfect swooping circle.

5:  Flared Nails Shape

Wide tips that gradually taper down towards the nail bed so leave a fanned out nail effect. Flared nail are usually made with acrylic nails applied on to the top of your own natural nail. Usually acrylic nails are very strong so they are good to use for this nail style type. Also because of the larger nail surface, this shape if suitable for some extreme nail art.

6: Stiletto Nails / Pointy Nails

Start by filing nails nails into very sharp triangle angles. File your nail into a triangular shape or point like shape on the end of the nail tip to produce this very popular nail style. The stiletto style can make your nails brittle and a bit weaker, and just as the oval shape can, your nails will tend to break more easy since the sides are not a strong as the square or squoval style. Wearing nails like this if they are going to be an every day way of life, you will want to reinforce the sides so they do not break as easy as they would without the reinforcement.

7: Oblique Nails Shape

This nail style is the least common of them all. The shape is created by the oblique french manicure. Both corners are very sharp. Typically oblique nails are very weak and will break easily so you must be very careful if you chose to wear this nail style.
