I vary between short squoval and mid length almond... Do you find you wear a certain style just because it's fashionable? x

I'm always between almond and a slightly blunted stiletto, mid to long because they grow quicker than I can file them, square nails make my fingers look a bit too chunky for my liking xx

I'm exactly the same, it's taken me about 10 days to get used to the almond but now I love it.

I've only been able to change length because the miracle that is IBX!

Can I ask what you nail geeks think of almond and french manicure style..... I normally have squoval ad that's my natural nail shape, but im loving the look of almond at the mo.... but not sure I like it with a white tip.... as the smile line can look funny.. what do you "almonders" think...?

I find it varies from client to client but majority still want square to squoval. Although more are asking for oval and round lately and some ladies hand shape suit it better then a harsh square for more mature clients for example.

I personally am likening ballerina or coffin now so it's more elegant I think for longer nails.


Beauty at your finger tips!

gidday, Imo, if you di French with almond, your smile line needs to be a little deeper. I have seen some lovely almond French manicures
