Lipstick Tips, Firecrackers, and a little Royalty

(promotional samples ahead)

What better time to try something ridiculous than Halloween? It is almost as if the season was made for it! I was shortening my nails the other day and I decided to be a little silly. I would never have the cajones to do this for real, but I enjoyed the hell out of it for an afternoon.

I am not a huge fan of this nail shape. Nope. I think I am too much of a traditionalist when it comes to nails. I'm considering trying almond shape in November...and its give me a minor heart attack. Squares just feel right to me.

What about you? Do you experiment with nail shapes, or do you stick to what works?

  1. I was iffy at first but the more I look at them, the more I like them. I could never do it though. I fully live the nub life, not really by choice, but it's a fate I bear.

  2. I´m not sure, I´d probably go crazy trying to get each angle exactly right, lol! I love what you did with the french tip though.

  3. I'm all over the place with nail shape. I'm mostly rounds but occasionally I get a whim and go square or ballerina.

  4. Oh gosh, I thought it was an eye trick that I saw a diagonal shape! But it's not! Well I find it cool for Halloween, but I wouldn't wear it the rest of time!

  5. It took me a long time to finally move to the shape I have now and I love it! I kind of like the slant in a weird kind of way!

  7. I'm a square girl too! But I do think these would be fun for a party or something. The mani works great with them too.

  8. I'll be honest, it took me a good minute or two to notice the shape. The angle looks subtle in the photos, but I know that I would drive myself crazy with these haha. I just went back to square nails and struggle enough with filing them straight haha!

  10. I'm too chicken to experiment with nail shapes! I just bought FAKE nails to try out stiletto nails haha. I do like this though - it's different

  12. I don't understand this nail shape at all. However, I think you'd look lovely with almond nails! Go for it!

  13. I always wish I could change my nail shape, but it freaks me out too much lol. So don't worry I'm right there with you in the squares club for life.

  14. Oh, Nichole, this is very groovy. Appeals to the surrealist in me. As for my own nail shape, because of your former cohort Amanda, I was inspired to sharpen my nails and I've been sporting almond pointies for over a month now, and I am hooked! It took me a while to get used to it but now I love it. I'll probably go back to my squoval sometime soon, but I do love the pointy nails.

  15. I understand your hesitance with this nail shape, but I think it's kinda groovy the way you're rocking these! I wouldn't keep them like this forever, but I think it's nice you're showing some designs with this shape!

  16. I'm such a chicken when it comes to trying new nail shapes! hah - But this looks fab on you!
