What nail shape do you prefer : square or rounded?


I’ve had oval shaped nails since forever. So in all the nail posts you’ve seen so far, I’ve had a oval tipped nail (which is my natural shape, I don’t file my nails much). Until now! A reader on Facebook suggested that I try Square tipped nails so yesterday I tried filing them in a rounded square shape and this is how they look now. I’m so used to the regular shape of my nails and this feels like such a novelty!

    Square nails look chic !! I keep alternating between square and oval/round. When they are square and start to have tiny cracks or peeling at d sides, I round them up and when they start to look obnoxiously long, I square them again !!

    This actually suits your nails Ankita, it’s a nice change! 🙂
    I usually prefer rounded nails as they look cuter and break less easily with me 😀

    I occasionally maintain square long nails but I just don’t like the feeling. I always end up cutting them after a week.

    I always prefer round shaped nails to avoid as i feel uncomfortable with square shaped… 🙂

    Ankita, u should TOTALLY retain this shape form now! It suits ur hands beautifully. I like both round tipped as well as square, but prefer square since it looks so classy and sophisticated 🙂
