25 Cool Nail Designs for Almond-Shaped Nails

As seasoned manicure fiends are wont to know, there is a whole list of different nail shapes that play with length and proportion. These days, you can ask your manicurist to file your nails into much more than just a square or oval shape. You could try coffin-shaped nails, which are long and dramatic with a squared-off tip. You could also try stiletto-shaped nails, which are as pointy as the heel of the iconic shoe.

Our favorite nontraditional nail shape, however, has to be almond, in which a curved cuticle bed swoops up to a small point at the tip of the nail. This shape is glamorous, just like its coffin and stiletto counterparts, yet a bit subtler and more refined. Think of almond like the Blake Lively of nail shapes… Hear us out. Just like how Lively is glamorous yet down-to-earth, this nail shape is glamorous yet wearable. See what we did there?
