Get All-Time Favorite Round Nails With These Easy Steps
Nothing beats the classics!
Though there may be times when you’d want sexy stiletto nails or elegant coffin-shaped nails, it’s always nice to go back to the classics as well. Round nails definitely go with any kind of design. It’s also the best shape for people who prefer shorter nails.
Shape your round nails just right with these three simple steps!
What you’ll need to shape your round nails:
- Nail clippers
- Nail filer
Step 1: Clip the Edges
To create this nail shape, it’s better to make it from square nails. If you have long nails, just clip your nails into a somewhat square shape.
Once you have the square shape, clip the edges until the nail looks like a very short coffin nail. You will move on to filing it into the correct shape later on.
Step 2: File Away
Once you’ve clipped the edges of the nail, start filing it into the shape you want. Start at the side of the nail and file it towards the center of the nail. Make sure to stay in one direction only. When you start seeing the rounded edge of the nail, move on to the other side.
Step 3: Shape Into Round Nails
Unlike the almond shape where you had to keep the tip pointed, round nails have to be shorter. This should look somewhat similar to oval shaped nails but with a more blunt top. File the nails into just the right round shape that you want.
Now you’re ready for a new design with your perfectly shaped nails!
