Vampy Colors & Different Nail Shapes
Fall nails are all about vampy colors and different shapes. Dark and mysterious shades have been seen in all of the popular fashion magazines from Harpers Bazaar to Vogue and even on your favorite celebrities! Here are some of our favorite colors from Essie and tips on how to get your nails to whatever shape you'd like! Are you simple and classy or bold and edgy?
Oval: File the tip of the nail into an egg shape, and file away some of the side of the nails, this does weaken the nails to some extent but is ideally suited to nails that are thick or wide as it gives them a more delicate appearance.
Square: Created by allowing the nail to grow out straight and then filing the tip straight across at right angles with the rest of the nail plate. This is again quite a strong nail shape but is not particularly flattering. Short square shaped nails can make hands look blunt and heavy. This is best for drawing attention to long nails.
Round: deal for shorter nails, the nail is allowed to grow out straight at the sides for approximately 1.5mm and then the tip is filed into a rounded shape. This is a strong shape which is great for those who keep their nails short.
Pointed: Nails are filed away at the sides to a point at the tip; this shape is very weak as the sides of the nail (which provide the strength) are totally lost.
