What if I can’t grow my nails out?

You may think that since your nails can’t be grown, there is no way to do anything with them other than the basic round. It’s not true, and I’m here for you to tell it! These are my top tips for nail breaking.

  • Acrylic nails: If you have extremely brittle nails and want to try different nail shapes, it is best to opt for acrylic nails. Acrylic nails are extremely strong and break less often than other types of nails.
  • Gel Nail Polish: I love getting gel nails. Gel nails last much longer than regular nail polish and retain their shine for a long time. This nail polish has a huge advantage for weak-nailed ladies. It strengthens your nails by adding another layer. Use acetone to soak them and then remove them. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to get rid of them.
  • Cuticle Oil: Many people ignore this oil, but it strengthens nails and helps keep them healthy. It is a good habit to use it every night before bed.

Let’s take an in-depth look at each nail shape so you can choose the one that tickles your fancy.

Different types of nail shapes

Round Shaped Nails

This shape is the easiest to maintain.

You can shape them squarely at first, then follow the natural curves of your fingers. This is the perfect look for people who have difficulty growing their nails.

Oval-shaped Nails

This shape is more traditional. This nail shape was very popular in the 2000s and 2000s. This nail shape gives your nails an elegant look. This nail shape is achieved by filing around the edges to create an egg-shaped shape. This shape is ideal for people with shorter fingers because it makes your fingers appear longer.

Square-shaped Nails

These nails have a square shape at the tips. This is one of the most common nail shapes. This is a great choice for nail shapes as it follows your natural nails’ width. These nails can be trimmed using a nail filer. If there is any roughness, clean it up.

Nails with a Squoval Shape

Another popular option in the world is the squoval or soft square. Although it’s easier to manage due to its rounded edges, the square shape retains the elegance of the original. To make these nails, first shape your nails into an oval like you would normally, then smooth it over the tip to create a square shape.

Almond-shaped Nails

The shape is similar to the oval but more pointed at its top. It’s wide at its base and narrow along the sides. It has the appearance of an almond. Find the middle spot on the nail tip and shape the sides to form a peak at that point. Smoothen the edges, so there are no sharp edges.
