Also known as fake or fashion nails, acrylics are available in multiple nail shapes, nail designs and colors so you’ll have the chance to really customize your look.
MOUNTAIN PEAK NAIL SHAPE
One of the lesser-known nail shapes, mountain peaks, has become a big trend this year. Nails are kept to medium length and tapered to a small, fine point. The mountain peak shape follows a similar pattern to stiletto nails, but it doesn’t require the fingernails to be as long. No acrylics are needed to craft this pointed shape. All you’ll need is some slight length on the tips that can be filed into a fine point.
COFFIN NAIL SHAPE
Daring women will love coffin nails. Also known as the ballerina style, coffin-shaped designs can be achieved with your own nails if they’re long enough. If you prefer keeping your manicures short, then get acrylic nails. For this shape, the stylist tapers the sides and then squares off the tips.
Trendy and feisty, highlight your exciting new nails with a range of colors and art such as beads and jewels. These are the nails you get if you want to make a statement – so it’s not a shock that coffin nails are a favorite of Instagram stars and influencers.
ROUND NAIL SHAPE
For a more understated vibe, the classic round shape is also on-trend for summer. A catwalk favorite, this chic and straightforward nail shape is very versatile. Round nails can attract attention when painted with a deep or bold color; alternatively, they can be the height of sophistication when paired with a nude polish. Pared-back and low-maintenance, round nails are a great choice if your style is classically elegant or a little androgynous.
