11 Almond-Shaped Nail Designs You’d Want To Try


If the “almonds” you know as fruits are oval-shaped, then you guessed right — Almond nails are in the same vein, oval-shaped nails that come to a soft point. This nail design is widest at the base, somewhat rounded on the edges of the free edge, and pointy at the very tip. It was inspired by the almond’s shape, may be worn short or long, looks good on most nail beds, and goes with almost any nail art style, making it the highlight of nail shapes.

In addition to giving the appearance of longer nails, almond nails also give off an impression of elegance while being relatively safe for you to get stuff done without hurting yourself or others. Also, a neutral shade of color would make the nail art pop.

This gentler nail art variation is a fair compromise between style, and practicality, so give it a try if you love the look of pointed nails.

Finding inspiration might be difficult when there are so many almond nail art alternatives available to try out. So, scroll down to see 10 cool and screenshot-worthy almond nail designs you might swoon over for your next manicure.
