    Knowing me, long and square is the way I'll go next year.

    I will probably do round shape. Usually when I get my nails done I do round shape, it seems to look the best on my nails. I have tried square before and they didn't look right for me.

    Leaning more towards a round. I’m not too adventurous with my nails

    I like the oval shape for the wedding instead of the square

    I usually have more squared off nails but I went rounder for the wedding. They look a little more elegant now and less prom style to me lol

    Short slight coffin shape (first time trying coffin), I’m trying to decide between this and square nails for wedding day. I’m either doing the pale pink as picture or a deep maroon that I’m trying before it’s time for wedding nails.

    I love this short coffin look Sarah!! I think both the pale pink and maroon are great options! I’m always a fan of a dark nail, it’s such a nice pop of color

    What does ballerina shape look like? I've never had my nails done, just buff them myself at home - dont even use polish because it feel like I have little weights on my fingers when I do (wasnt allowed color on my nails in HS for color guard cause we all had to look the same for shows and chipped polish - or any bright color - would highlight our fingers which could show off mistakes made in hand positioning). BUT people keep telling me I should at least get them professionally shaped for the wedding and I have no idea what I'm doing. But I was a ballerina so maybe that would be a good choice...

    They are the same as coffin nails.

    I like the square shape and I won’t have to worry about them snagging my dress

    For nails, I'm going to go with the round shape.
