Almond-shaped nails are everywhere—and for good reason. They’re a perfect canvas for tons of different styles of nail art. “Almond nails are one of the most versatile shapes, and look great with all nail designs like ombré, French, intricate art, stonework, etc.,” says nail artist Fleury Rose. “This shape is a wonderful foundation for most nail art styles.” Almond nail tips are best achieved on mid to long nails, explains expert Mabelyn Alva. “It’s a nail shape that is tapered on the sides up to the free edge of the nail with a slightly rounded tip,” says Alva. They’re more tapered than a round nail, but not as sharp as a stiletto nail.
