The Ultimate Guide on How to Shape Your Nails

How to shape your nails to make them look beautiful?

Do you dream of well -groomed nails that look delightful even without a manicure? The key to success is to give them the right shape. This makes the hands look impeccable, also allowing you to control the direction of nail growth and get the desired visual effect. The nail plate prepared in this way is an excellent base for further treatments - painting and decorating in any way. 

How to have a nice nail shape?

First, you need to get the right accessories. Currently, the files have conquered the world of manicure and you will easily get the desired shape of your nails. You can choose from several types - straight, banana or boat-shaped. Each of them not only cares for the right shape, but also allows it to be achieved in a delicate way, without causing damage.

To know how to shape your nails with a file, remember a few important rules. Rest your hand stable on the counter - never file in the air, because you don't have full control and you can easily make a mistake that will disturb the whole concept. Dry your hands thoroughly, because the wet nail is flexible, so it's harder to file it. To avoid split ends, file only one way. Also try to keep the same length of nails on each finger - after the work, wash your hands. Only then go to soaking and possible cuticle removal.

How to shape your nails step by step?

The standard, semi -circular shape is a popular choice. It is also the most natural, tailored to the fingertips and requiring slight interference, and therefore easy to get - when filing, just adjust the nail edge to the shape of your cuticle. Rounded nails are not easy to damage, because you do not catch them on clothes or other surfaces. They are recommended if you are struggling with fragility and brittleness of the nail plate.

Are you wondering how to have a nice nail shape while providing yourself with an original look? If you have long fingers, consider filing in a square. To make the whole look beautiful, precision is needed. You will make this task easier by resting both the hand and the file on the top. The square nail plate looks great with a subtle French manicure or painted with colourless varnish. The disadvantage is a susceptibility to breaking, so take care of proper strengthening by using nail vitamin conditioner.

Wanting to slim your hands, try letting your natural nail grow out. So how do you get a nice nail shape in this case? It requires some time and regularity - so you need to be patient. With the growth of the nail, gradually file only its sides, allowing the ends to grow freely, only gently levelling them. Thanks to this, the nail plate will be formed in a desired way, and your consistency will be rewarded with a beautiful basis for creating a manicure.

How to give your nails a nice almond shape?

Nails filled in a pointy or soft almond are one of the most modern, and at the same time the most difficult to get alone at home. They will not work for every woman either. Give them up in physical work or when you wear lenses, but - if you are looking for inspiration for a party or a unique meeting - this shape will certainly delight all the originality. When choosing effective, pointed nails, use hardened gel polish in your favourite colour.

Are you looking for a way for a perfect nail shape? Delight with the wealth of choice and inspire with the above tips so that your hands look perfectly regardless of the occasion. With professional Semilac accessories and gel polishes, you will create an excellent manicure based on well -groomed and perfectly formed nails.
