Almond nails
are one of the most flattering, delicate nail shapes, as they elongate the fingers to impossible lengths while being super-femme. Featuring slim, tapered sides that end in a rounded tip, this nail shape is similar to the claw-like stiletto shapes seen on Kylie Jenner, just much softer. While the possibilities are endless when it comes to colors and designs, there are a few things you should know before asking for an almond shape from your technician, as different nail shapes look better on a variety of finger lengths. 

If you decide to go for an elegant almond shape, you should know you're in seriously chic company — celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann told Harper's Bazaar that almonds are "the chicest nail shape in the fashion world" and are "sexy, slenderizing, and strong." While your almond nails are destined to look incredible, many nail experts recommend going for colors to complement this graceful nail shape. While Lippmann recommends pairing this shape with a nude shade, that almonds look great in "light pinks, creams, pale yellows, and white" as well as "trendy grey-tone colors" like sage, lavender and periwinkle.

Apart from perfect color choices, you should know that almonds need a substantial amount of nail length. Almond nails "require some length" which can either be achieved by growing out your own nails or trying acrylic tips.

If you're determined to file your nails into an almond shape yourself, "most people need to start out with squares when their nails are short" and then file to oval and almond shapes. Seems easier said than done? More recommends marking a spot in the center of your nail tip and filing towards it. If you're game enough, using a nail clipper on the sides to reduce filing time. Taper both sides but leave a flat tip to round out, smoothing to create a perfect almond.

Almond shapes are known to elongate fingers, almonds "slenderize" thicker fingers and wide nail beds. While many experts maintain that a certain amount of length is needed to make an almond shape work, you can also try a less dramatic style on shorter nails.

While you won't have sharp tips that can snag on sweaters, not everything with almond nails is smooth sailing. Having an almond nail shape means waving goodbye to swiftly unbuttoning clothes, easily picking stuff up, or even opening a can. That being said, if you're still up for the universally flattering almond style, you'll have one of the most sophisticated shapes out there.
