Love summer? Me too! Well, the sunny season is here and we are giving our nails a pretty summer manicure!
And whether you’ll be giving yourself an at-home mani or visiting a salon, just remember that summer is all about nail designs that make you feel adventurous! Think bright colors, stylish shapes, and bold designs.
One of the most popular nail shapes for summer has to be almond nails. These are chic nails, shaped exactly like almond nuts. They are filed along the sides and feature a rounded point at the tip to make them less sharp than stiletto nails yet pointier than oval nails.
The cute almond nails favor long fingernails; so it is wise to grow out your nails if you want to try out almond nail designs. Good thing, you can always try acrylics to achieve such designs.
