What shape nails?

Your nails are just as important on your wedding day as is everything else, they complete the look! How will you wear your nails? Are you going classic with a round, square, or almond shape? Or, will you keep it edgy with a coffin, stiletto, or pointed shape?

    I will be an edgy bride and my nails will definitely be coffin ⚰️ shaped. They’re my favorite 💅🏽

    I prefer square or almond. I keep my nails rather short, even with acrylics because I have long nail beds and my nails grow crazy fast so I keep them shorter to avoid going to get them touched up as much. Coffin make my nails look too long and once they do start to grow out I can't do anything with them!

    Right now they are pretty square but I think when I get them redone on Wed for the wedding I may ask them to round them out more to make them softer

    Round or almond shape most likely!

    I typically wear my nails in a coffin shape, but I did almond for my wedding because it was more vintage. I couldn’t wait to trim the tops off afterwards! Smiley laugh It’s just not a very practical or sturdy shape, at least for me.

    I prefer a more rounded nail, and I will do an ombré French manicure for the day of.

    I always do round! Square nails look stupid on me. I’ve also had stilettos but I don’t think they’d be “wedding appropriate”

    Squoval is the best! Personally i think straight square looks good on few people... The rounded corners make it so much more nice and natural!
