I recently took my daughter to the nail salon to get her nails done for prom.
When the question came “What shape do you want your nails” we had no clue what to answer.
These days almost anything goes but of course it’s also interesting to take a look at the different shapes.
She ended up getting just regular oval-shaped nails but next time she will be prepared.
Most Popular Nail Shapes
Here are the most popular nail shapes. Let me know in the comments which one is your favorite.
- Oval – similar to almond style except blunter

It’s one thing to see a photo of nail shapes and another to see real live people with nail shapes.
Of course, many of these nail shapes are with acrylic nails but if you have strong real nails you can shape them too.

Are Color Street Nails For Acrylics?
I’ve had a few people ask me about Color Street nails and if they can use them over their acrylics.
The answer is yes!

Try Collagen For Brittle Or Weak Nails
If you have brittle or weak nails you should try taking collagen on a regular basis.
Why? Because as we age we produce less collagen which gradually contributes to dull hair, wrinkles, and weak nails.
I’ve taken a variety of different collagens over the years and in different forms.
I’ve used powder collagen (like this one) in the past but since using marine collagen I believe I’m seeing better results.
