Rounded nails help the fingers appear longer, making this a good choice for anyone with shorter, wider digits. But anyone can pull off rounded nails and this shape looks amazing with almost any nail polish hue.

Almond-shaped nails are similar to oval, but sharper. Still, you can actually use your fingers when you go with this on-trend mani style, unlike pointy stiletto-shaped nails, according to Cosmopolitan. Long and thin nail beds work well with almond, as do longer nails.
By far the most daring nail shape of the bunch, ballerina is a hybrid of almond and square due to its elongated shape and blunt edge. This look does well for fingers with narrow nail beds. You’ll need both strong nails and a strong sense of style to pull off this look. Pair the shape with bold polish, and wow. Look at you!
