I love this nail shape

How long do my nails have to be for my manicurist to shape them into this for me? I'd say they have 3-4 mm growth right now and I'm going in a week.

Bit more I'd say, lots of nail has been lost to get that shape.

She also has a natural long narrow nail bed which helps to get the shape

It's an almond shape - mine are about 5mm from tip and look like this which is a bit longer I think (and pointier?)

My nail bed is her shape. Those look perfect!

It's just a classic oval isn't it? You'd probably be able to have them done to 'round' now and then oval in a few weeks.
