Here’s a guide on achieving almond shaped nails

Almond nails are a popular choice for those looking for a fashionable and elegant manicure. Creating almond-shaped nails is surprisingly easy, and it’s no wonder that almond nail designs are currently trending. If you’re interested in learning how to achieve this stylish look, you’ve come to the right place.

To create almond nails using your natural nails, you’ll only need a nail file or nail drill to shape the nails into the distinctive almond shape. However, if you prefer to use nail extensions, you’ll also need adhesive, a nail lamp, and polish.

For natural nails, it’s recommended to have medium and fine grit nail files to shape the tips. Additionally, a buffing block can be used to achieve a natural shine or prepare the nails for polish. A cuticle pusher and cuticle oil can provide a beautiful finish to your manicure. It’s important to ensure that your natural nails are slightly longer than the tips of your fingers for the best results. If needed, you can use nail tips or press-on nails to achieve the desired length.

When using nail tips, it’s essential to prepare your natural nails beforehand. This involves pushing back the cuticles and removing the shine from the surface of your nails. Once prepared, you can apply almond-shaped nail tips, which are easier to work with compared to reshaping coffin nails or stilettos. Adhesive is used to secure the tips, and a UV or LED lamp is used to cure the adhesive. A nail file or nail drill can be used to perfect the tips if necessary. If desired, you can also apply polish and nail art supplies to enhance your almond-shaped nails.

Before starting the manicure, it’s crucial to properly prepare your nails. Trim them if needed and push back the cuticles. Using a cuticle remover can make this process faster. Leaving any skin on the nails can cause issues such as polish or adhesive lifting.

If you’re applying nail tips, it’s recommended to buff the nails to remove the shine. This helps the nail glue adhere better and ensures a longer-lasting manicure.

Now that your nails are prepped, it’s time to create the almond shape. The almond shape is wider at the base, slimmer on the sides, and has a rounded tip. It’s a sophisticated choice between long, narrow stilettos and oval nails. Remember to take your time and enjoy the process of creating your almond-shaped nails.

Here are some tips for getting the perfect almond-shaped face

Having an almond or a picture of an almond-shaped nail handy as a reference makes it easier to shape the nails correctly. Drawing a straight line from the cuticle to the free edge also makes it easier to shape the nails correctly.

You can save a lot of time filing by using curved-edge nail clippers. They will get the shape started for you.

Nonetheless, it’s important to know what nail file to use for almond-shaped nails. For example, don’t use coarse (80 or 100-grit) files on your natural nails. These are best for shaping gels, acrylics, and nail enhancements.

File the free edge of the nail with medium grit (180 to 220), but do not use such a file on natural nails.

A fine grit file (240 to 600) is ideal for smoothing a manicure or removing shine before applying polish or tip adhesive.

Another way to get almond-shaped nails is to:

Nails that press on

You guessed it. Press-on nails give you a polished, perfect shape with minimum effort. We love the pearlescent finish on the accent nails in this package. However, you can jazz them up with nail art or change the color with gel polish.

Does Acrylic, Polygel, or Hard Gel work for almond-shaped extensions?

You can do long almond nails with acrylic, hard gel, or polygel. Acrylics will air-dry, while gels require a UV lamp to cure.

Are there any nail designs that look good on almond-shaped nails?

In addition to the almond shape, there are many variations of the French manicure, including micro-French tips. The almond shape already enhances the look of long fingers.

You can have so much fun experimenting with different designs that work so well with almond nails, such as aura, donut, and cat’s eye nails.
