What Is Your Preferred Nail Shape?

Short, square-shaped nails are in style, but just because young Hollywood stars are into this look, that doesn't mean that you have to like it, too. Long, manicured nails are beautiful, timeless and really show off dainty fingers and rings! Take this poll and let me know what your personal nail shape preference is.

I think people spend tooooooo much on nails....GO NATURAL and put a clear coat. I love getting pedicures, but do my own nails & keep them short, natural w/ clear coat, no polish.

Squaround. :) ( Square with round corners ) It's the most pratical shape and most durable. Trendiest too!

EW my mom always "rounds" off her nails. Like, even when we stop at a red light, she'll whip out a nail file and round them. I HATE it. Drives me nuts, they're like half circles

I'm undecided. I like either square nails or squoval nails. I don't like rounded nails, though.

squoval b/c I think totally rounded makes your hands look stumpy but square looks too contrived.... I like a more natural shape

My nails are naturally rounded with a hint of squareness... so I just file them a bit if they get rough and otherwise just let them go...

Kelliegonzo, that's what I thought when I saw the pointed nails. Only Cruella De Vil wears pointed, scary nails.

I think rounded looks more polished and pretty, but when I file my nails myself, my rounded always gets uneven. So when I have them done, I go for rounded and when I do them myself I go for squoval.
