Nails are an important part of our personality that can make us look elegant and sophisticated in minutes. Well-manicured, shaped and colored nails are the foundation for making your hands look fabulous, but with so many options available with different shapes and sizes, we often end up choosing the one that does not look good on our fingers. Not all the shapes go with every size of the finger and hence you need to choose the one that will suit you best. Here are some ideas for your nails that you can look out for on your next trip to the salon.

Wide Fingers


 While choosing the nail shape for wider fingers, the whole purpose is to make the fingers look slim and slender. Slenderizing wide fingers with nail shapes create the illusion of slim hands and fingers, one such shape that people of this size can choose is the Almond nail shape. This shape is slightly wide at the bottom and rounded and pointed at the end. However, this shape won’t look good on short nails as it won’t create the elongated look which is required to achieve an Almond shape.


Short Fingers
