ROUND

“This shape is when the tips of your nails are per­fectly rounded from side to side. Round nails are gen­er­ally one of the most re­quested shapes be­cause they are ver­sa­tile and ex­tremely wear­able for ev­ery day. You can achieve this look by fil­ing your nails from one side to the other in a gen­tle arch, stay­ing softer on the tips.”

ALMOND

“Almond nails are a soft shape; they are slightly slen­der to­ward the tip to mimic the shape of an ac­tual almond. To get this look, file nails from the side, go­ing grad­u­ally slim­mer to the tips.”

STILETTO

“Stiletto nails are sim­i­lar to almond nails but have sharper tips. To achieve this look, you need to have fairly long nails or en­hance­ments. File your nails grad­u­ally from each side to­ward the tip in an arched shape—this will make the nails look long and slim. Stiletto is not as com­mon as some of the other shapes be­cause they can get in the way of your ev­ery­day ac­tiv­i­ties, but peo­ple still love them for spe­cial oc­ca­sions be­cause of their dra­matic look!”
