So I'm having my first manicure tomorrow and I have just been informed by my friend that I have to decide what nail shape I want. Help, what looks nice please.

I'm a square fan. Don't like the pointy talons! They scare me blush

It's more ovaled square though

Squoval. It's the most natural shape.

I like rounded nails. When the person doing it asks what you want, maybe ask him/her what they think would suit your hands? That's what I do in the hairdresser's when she asks a question i have no idea about!

I like oval.

Ooh yes the pointy ones, they scare me too. They are also really long.

I have mine cut right to the top of my fingertips, as I can't cope with long nails, and cut them back down between manicures if they grow too long, so don't be intimidated into thinking they have to be long.

I like square.

I like to see long nails on other people but I don't think they would suit me.

I alway ask for 'in between'.

Squoval for me

Is squoval square with slightly round edges? So much choice!

Round for me. Although I've only just had my second proper manicure ever today.

pinkieandperkie Mon 12-Sep-16 19:01:11

Thanks chew. I think I like squoval the best. I'm quite excited!

I was a bit daring with mine this weekend, but kinda like the results!

Can't stand anything pointy or talony.

Welsh your nails look fab.

I really like that red colour welsh (are you Ms Church? wink).

welshgirlcharlotte Tue 13-Sep-16 10:17:44

I'm not Charlotte Church (thankfully!) - but thanks for the kind comments regarding there nails. Slightly outside of my comfort zone re shape but lived them!
