Choosing a Perfect Nail Shape!

Choosing a Perfect Nail Shape!

Posted by Haleigh on 10th Dec 2018

Choosing a nail shape can be just as daunting as choosing a color, but Revel’s got your back! We’ve put together a guide of the most used shapes and how to best wear them!


Round / Natural

Best for short nails, this shape is the perfect look for a low-maintenance mani. The edge of the nail follows the natural shape of the fingertip and will keep your nails strong and durable!

Wear it with: Dark or light shades; we think all colors are a go with this shape!

Square

The square shape nail is a classic for the modernist. With sharp, square corners, this is a popular look for short nails. Keep the shape and add length to spice up your next mani!

Wear it with: Deep, bold colors!

Oval

We are OBSESSED with the oval nail, and let’s be real…so is everyone else. Since the curvature is more extreme than the round shape, we suggest rocking it with longer nails. The oval look can cause short fingers to appear longer and slimmer, making it a go-to for all occasions.

Wear it with: neutrals or glitters (it’ll look fab no matter what!)

Almond

Meet the oval shape’s sassy sister…the almond shape! This shape is filed along the sides of the nail like the oval, except it comes to a rounded point. Edgy meets elegant with this flawless shape.

Wear it with: an elegant pink or a chic multi-shade mani!

Stiletto

Perfect for those with a daring fashion style, these nails are not to be messed with! This look is much like the almond shape with tips that come to a sharp point. Naturally, stiletto shaped nails do not have good durability…but good thing you have Revel’s rock-hard dip powders on your side!

Wear it with: an edgy black shade or flashy glitters

Squoval

The most universally loved and worn shape is the squoval. Do you love the look of square nails without the sharp edges? Try this classic out! As a hybrid of the square and oval, this look will never go out of style.

Wear it with: fun designs & shades or a simple but beautiful dark tone!

Coffin

This shape is taking boring manicures to the grave! Also known as the ballerina shape, this look is so on trend right now (and one of our personal favorites!) This is a long, tapered shape with a flat top that is bound to look good on everyone.

Wear it with: any matte or a classic black
