Learn How To Get Squoval Nails With These Easy Tutorials

The term squoval was coined from two words – oval and square, and it’s designed to point out to a particular nail shape that has rounded edges on square nails. If you have oval or square nails and you want to try something new, it’s high time to try a new nail shape – a squoval nail. It’s relatively easy to make, regardless if your nail was previously oval or square-shaped. Here are easy tutorials on how to get squoval nails.

What You’ll Need To Get Squoval Nails:

From Oval Nails To Squoval Nails:

Step 1: Flatten The Top Of The Oval Nail

To have a squoval-shaped nail, all you have to do is flatten the top of your oval-shaped nail. Do this until you get the shape you desire.

Step 2: Refine The Edges Of Your Squoval Nails

Blend the flat top and rounded edges by running the nail file around the nail. Run the nail file from the rounded edge to the center and repeat the process until you have the clean edges you like. Make sure the nail file is at 45-degree angle.

Step 3: Remove Remaining Nail Shavings

Remove the remaining nail shavings by putting the nail file against the tip of the nail. Use upward motions to remove the shavings.
