Here's Proof Acrylic Nails Don't Have to Be Long

Red French Tips

Love the look of a French manicure but crave a pop of color? This red French mani is just what you're looking for. You can use the same five colors on each hand, or (if you're feeling fancy), ask your manicurist to mix it up with different acrylic colors on each digit.

02of 30

Neat and Nude

There's nothing like a perfect nude mani. Unfortunately, classic neutral polishes can chip so easily that the coveted natural effect rarely lasts. Nude acrylics, on the other hand, are here to last.

03of 30

Cotton Candy Ombré

Can't pick a single color? Opting for a faded acrylic ombré lets you show off two of your favorite shades in a way that will make you glad they'll last for a couple of weeks.

04of 30

Bedazzled Ombré

Nude nails are pretty in their own right, but when you add glitter to the mix, even better. When getting your acrylics done, let your manicurist know beforehand that you'd like to have glitter on your end product, as it will change their process.

05of 30

Rounded Nudes

If you fancy a nude manicure but can't get behind super squared tips, consider asking your manicurist to round out your acrylics. Not sure what to ask for? Look up almond, squoval, oval, and round nails to help you choose.

Burgundy Babies

Perfect for fall, we love how these champagne and burgundy shades play together.

07of 30

Art Deco

Add a pop of color to your day with these Art Deco-inspired digits. With bold color choices, modern lines, a splatter of black, and an easy-to-rock short length, we're confident they'll be the source of daily compliments.

Classic Red

If Ruby Woo were an acrylic nail, we think we found it. Perfect for the holidays (or year-round), you can't go wrong with a classic red.

09of 30

Glitter Bomb-lettes

Everyone loves an accent nail, especially on longer, bolder acrylics. But when your nails are shorter (and therefore more subtle), you can afford to go all-glitter, all over.

'90s French

The French manicure you know and love is officially back and better than ever. Protect your white tips from noticeable chips by going acrylic, keeping the look natural (as intended to be) with a shorter style.

11of 30

Floral Details

Another way to enhance a classic nude manicure is by adding floral details. While professional acrylics will help the adorable design last for days on end, you can easily DIY with regular polish and a push pin at home.

12of 30

Simple White Lines

Single white lines are minimalism at their finest, so if you're looking for a simple nail look, search no further. You can layer the lines over nude nails, as was done here, or go a bit bolder with a lime green or red base.

13of 30

Glitter Tips

Negative space is all about showing off your bare nail in contrast to color. While it always looks appealing, it comes off even prettier when paired with eye-catching glitter. One of the best ways to help the glitter stay in place is to get it done in long-lasting acrylic.

14of 30

Rosy Nails

Give yourself all the good vibes with a set of these rose quartz-inspired acrylic nails. The pale pink jelly color gives off an ethereal vibe that's sure to make for a stunning photo op.

15of 30

Barely There Nude

If the goal is to achieve strong, natural-looking nails that won't chip for weeks on end, this simple nude mani is worth adding to your folder of mani inspo. Snag the barely-there nude polish or copy the look by switching off with jelly holographic glitter.

16of 30

Matte Red Mani

Let's get one thing straight: You can never go wrong with red nails. If you're worried that they'll be too bold for your day-to-day, simply subdue them a bit by foregoing a shiny finish in favor of a matte effect.

17of 30

Pastel Mismatch

The rainbow nail art trend shows no signs of slowing down, so if you're looking for new ways to test out the bold beauty statement, consider going a bit lighter with your shade selections. These mismatched nails feature pale colors and are also inverted in terms of which nail they're on, on each hand.

18of 30

Pink Yin and Yang

Feeling moody? This yin and yang mani will set all the vibes. Best of all? It's so easy to achieve. Just apply two coats of primer, create a squiggle down the center of your nail, use a nail brush (or the polish itself if you're steady-handed) to fill it in, and mark up your dots.

19of 30

Matching Toe and Tips

Just like there's a fascination with matching bras and underwear, the same can be said for fingernails and toenails. While acrylic toes are not necessary, getting short acrylic tips to match your toes is a good idea, as it will help them last as long as your pedicure.

20of 30

Starfish Charm

Summer calls for bright colors and nautical prints. To get in on the look, ask your manicurist to recreate these precious starfish acrylics.

21of 30

Rainbow Bright

Sure, pastels are pretty and white accents are minimalist, but for the days when you want to go all out, look no further than these gorgeous rainbow nails. The hot and cold color selections make for an easy-to-match mani that you'll want to wear time and time again.

22of 30

Larimar Dreams

Just because the Larimar stone can only be found in the Dominican Republic doesn't mean that you can't bring its beauty stateside via your nails. With a tie-dye-like mix of blues and a silver outline along the entire nail and tips, you don't need a ton of surface area to show off these beauties.

23of 30

Baby Blues

If you can't get on board with Skittles nails⁠—where each nail is painted a different color⁠—try adding one white nail to your mani. In this example, the bright white makes the periwinkle pop.

24of 30

Matte Moment

If you're looking for short acrylic nail inspiration, chances are you're into subtlety. Look no further than this matte nude perfection.

25of 30

Black Lacquer

These high-shine, almond-shaped acrylics are so glossy you can see your own reflection.

26of 30

Natural Ombré

A softer take on the classic French manicure, these trimmed acrylics create a blurred gradient that goes with everything.

27of 30

Constellation Cuticles

We love constellation piercings, so it's only natural that we pin these constellation nails. Pro tip: customize this mani with your zodiac sign.

28of 30

Neon Nail Art

Neon is having a major moment. If you want to play it up a notch, consider adding glittery nail art on top of the already eye-catching neon color of your choice.

29of 30

Moody Black and White

There's just something so simple yet chic about a black and white mani, and this one delivers on both fronts. To amp it up, try adding a nail jewel.

30of 30

Green With Envy

We're green with envy for this whimsical-esque mani. Best part? You can do the same style, but with whatever color spectrum you want.

If you break out into a cold sweat every time your nail tech asks you how you want your nails filed (just me?), you’ve officially come to the right place. Bc despite what your IG feed might be telling you, your options are far from limited when it comes to nail shapes. Like, sure, you’ve got your classics (hiii, almond and square), but you’ve also got plenty of room to play around with length, sharpness, and width for a cool new look. So if you’re ready to retire your boring, blah manicure for something a bit more exciting, keep scrolling to find the absolute best nail shapes of all time. NGL, I think you’re about to discover your new favorite.

How to pick the best nail shape

A quick PSA that there's no such thing as the best nail shape—it's all about finding a style that works great for you. Try to keep your lifestyle and preferred nail length in mind when trying a new look, since some shapes (see: anything in the coffin or stiletto family) will definitely require a set of acrylics or gel extensions. And when in doubt, there's no harm in chatting over your options with your nail tech—they'll be able to check out your natural nails IRL and give you a pretty good idea of which shapes are worth trying.

Got it? Cool, now keep reading for 13 of the prettiest nail shapes, along with a few tips and tricks for trying them out yourself.

5Stiletto Nails

Named after a pair of sky-high heels, “this shape is a statement—it’s both dramatic and high maintenance,” says nail stylist Miss Pop. Because stiletto nails call for super-tapered sides, pointy centers, and hella length, you’ll need to commit to extensions.

💫Who it's best for: “There’s no such thing as a natural stiletto nail, since they’ll break too easily in this shape,” says Miss Pop. Choi recommends getting gel overlays versus acrylics to increase the length. “Acrylics can look thick, which is why I prefer using gel instead, since the shape will always look more elegant.”

8Oval Nails

This nail shape is deceivingly difficult to execute, since the slightly tapered end can easily veer into almond or round territory if you file too heavily or not enough. “It takes patience to file this shape—so go slow,” says Miss Pop.

💫Who it's best for: Got short nails? This shape won’t work unless you add acrylics or gel overlays. “If you flip your hand palm side up and can still see the tips of your nails, then you can definitely create this shape,” says Miss Pop.

9Almond Nails

Unlike an oval nail, which has only slightly tapered sides, this nail shape is more extreme. “It’s very glamorous,” says nail pro Jin Soon Choi. “It gets its name because the entire nail looks like an almond in that it’s elongated at the tip with a round base.”

💫Who it's best for: The almond shape looks best on medium to long nails, since plenty of length is required for it to be noticeable, says Choi.

10Square Nails

Arguably the easiest shape to create, square edges are achieved by simply filing back and forth across the top of your nail. Keep in mind that the corners tend to get a little jagged though, soprepare for regular filing to keep them smooth. “When filing the sides, make sure to keep the file perpendicular to your nail, and be careful not to apply too much pressure or the edge will take on a concave U shape versus staying straight and boxy,” says Choi.

💫Who it's best for: Square edges work on both natural and fake nails, but “it tends to look best on those with long, narrow nail beds,” says Choi.

11Squoval Nails

“This square-meets-oval hybrid is my favorite because anyone can wear it—whether you have short, medium, or long nails—plus, it’s modern and soft,” says Choi. The catch? It’s easy to mess up. “People make the mistake of filing straight across the top and then curving the corners, which is actually square with round edges, not a true oval,” she explains. Instead, create a subtle arc at your tips and then connect the sides so there’s a natural taper.

💫Who it's best for: Like Choi said, it suits any nail length, so get ready to give it a go ASAP.

13Ballerina Nails

Consider this nail shape the stiletto’s softer-edged cousin. It’s named after the top part of a ballerina’s pointe shoes, which have slightly convex sides and a straight tip. To copy this fresh look, Miss Pop recommends filing your nail in a perfect oval shape and then squaring off the tapered tip.

💫 Who it's best for: Unless you have rock-hard natural nails, you’ll likely need acrylic or gel overlays to get the strength needed to keep your tips from breaking. And it never hurts to throw in a cuticle oil every day.

**TikTok** SHORT ACRYLIC NAIL- Acrylic Nail Ideas- aisha’s edits

Entering the nail salon can feel like stepping onto a battleground. Depending on your nails' size and shape, it could feel like there are more limitations than possibilities. Whether it's stressing that your nails are too short for a dark color, or wishing your lifestyle could allow for a stiletto mani á la Cardi B, selecting a shape can mean a war between what you want and what you'll end up asking for. So, you settle on a non-committal "squoval" or "sqround" shape, without truly knowing what you're getting. "Those two shapes do not exist in my world," says Art Nail NYC founder Sataya Stone.

Instead, she prefers modifying tried-and-true styles, such as a true square or round shape. Along with Stone, we tapped celebrity and editorial nail experts Mazz Hanna, Brittney Boyce, and Elle to discuss modern takes on age-old nail shape trends. They explain where to get specific about your nail style (with their shade picks and art tips) so you can request your new nail shape with confidence.


Almond

The Look: An oval shape that comes to a soft point.

The Length: Both Stone and Boyce agree that this shape looks best on medium-length nails. “It helps elongate your fingers, making them look slimmer,” adds Boyce.

The Shade: Stone says the main difference between an almond and stiletto shape is that the almond "is going to have three different angles" made up of the two sides and point. A neutral color could add pop to this shape's dimensions. Boyce added a two-tone french tip to the minimalist look, below.

Square

The Look: It looks exactly like it sounds, with straight and sharp edges, squared off at the tip.

The Length: This suits a shorter nail to minimize tapering.

The Shade: Stone dispels the myth that dark colors aren't meant for short nails. "I, coming into the business, heard, 'No dark colors for short nails because it makes them look shorter,'" says Stone. "But I have clients who will only do dark colors with short nails." She says that, above all, season can dictate shade more than length.

Oval

The Look: A round shape nail, with corners that curve inward. “This is such a classic shape and looks great on all nail lengths,” says Boyce.

Hanna echoes this and notes one thing to keep in mind if you decide to move forward with this shape: “It's extra important to keep your nails strong if they are oval because they are more likely to break at the tips,” she says. She explains that this is because the nail plate is usually filed into a more slender shape with less support on the sides.

The Length: Though oval looks great on all lengths, it's favored amongst those with medium-length nails and narrow nail beds. Stone mentions that clients with shorter nails might go oval if they're growing their mani out.

The Shade: Hanna says that nail art looks especially beautiful on oval nails, and suggests a minimalist look like negative space or a french manicure. Thinking of doing all-over color? Her go-to is Orly Nail Lacquer in Noveau Riche.

Round

The Look: Straight sides that round up with a flat-edged tip.

The Length: Short. Stone points out this style, like oval or almond, is easier to get used to than a more extreme stiletto shape. Rounder nail beds look better with a round or soft square shape.

The Shade: A simple shape such as oval or round leaves room for more stylistic nail art or bright color—like the tortoise shell inspired nails below.

Coffin

The Look: An angular take on the square shape, with a straight-edged tip tapered in.

The Length: Stone says this shape looks best with longer nails. Boyce echoes this, saying it’s “a fun shape if you’re sporting gel extensions.”

The Shade: Stone says a long, black nail can look harsh. Either offset the hard lines of a coffin nail by choosing a lighter color (to add balance) or break up darker shades along the nail surface with negative space (the way Boyce does, below).

Ballerina

The Look: Similar to the coffin-style nail, with rounded corners.

The Length: Stone says most clients "want a coffin, but they want the corners not to be sharp, so we're softening it just the tiniest little bit." If coffin shape works best on longer nails, it's safe to say ballerina does too.

Manicurist Elle adds that the ballerina shape can be mixed-and-matched with other shapes for long nails (like coffin or stiletto) seamlessly. She says doing so can “tell a story.”

The Shade: Longer nails have less limitations when it comes to color, but a pretty pink would pay homage to the ballet shoe that gave this shape its name.

Soft Square

The Look: A square shape nail with softer, rounder edges.

The Length: Boyce explains that this shape is best for short nails, as “the sides are rounded so they don’t snag.”

The Shade: Stone explains that as long as a nail technician is keeping a color symmetrical and "very clean" around the edges, a darker, bolder color can work on a short and wide nail.

Moroccan Almond

The Look: "Just as there are different types of almonds, [typical] almonds are pointy at the tip, while a Moroccan almond is wider with less of a point at the tip," says Stone.

The Length: According to Stone, "most people are striving towards having a medium length, natural nail," which complements an almond shape.

The Shade: Those with medium length nails "have no boundaries" color-wise, says Stone. Go wild with your shade pick. Manicurist Elle agrees, saying “These shapes and lengths give you a great palette to create any trend you want to do,” whether it’s popular hues or art.

Stiletto

The Look: Shaped long and spiky, with the point curving to the base like a triangle.

The Length: Long nails are a must to capture this dramatic style.

The Shade: Color is less of a priority than safety when it comes to this daring choice. Stone cautions that first-time stiletto stans don't get the edges too sharp, at risk of getting caught on something or scratching yourself. "Your professional should be giving you examples of things that might be more difficult (with stiletto nails)," says Stone. "I tell my clients, mostly just be mindful how you're using your hands."

Squoval Nails

The Look: Exactly the shape you would imagine if you combined a square and oval—as comical as the word may sound, this nail shape is a sophisticated classic.

The Length: With squoval nails, strive for a length that strikes between short and medium. Think slightly grown out, healthy nails.

The Shade: Because of the uncomplicated shape and length, squoval nails make the perfect canvas for almost design, whether it's a classic deep red color or a whimsical design.

Lipstick Nails

The Look: Asymmetrical at the tip, creating a slant that evokes the shape of a fresh tube of lipstick.

The Length: Lipstick nails can add a fun, unexpected twist to your manicure on longer nails.

The Shade: Consider a bold color to highlight the whimsical silhouette. If you're looking to top off your lipstick nails with a design, something more muted would compliment the nail shape given that the nail silhouette is quite loud in design already.


Flare Nails

The Look: Like how a flared skirt creates an A-line shape, this silhouette emulates an A-line flare at the tips to add some spunk to your usual mani.

The Length: Err on the shorter side with these nails as the wider tips are a bit more delicate and prone to snags.

The Shade: Highlight this unique nail shape by pairing it with French tips. The nail shape is fun enough on its own that you won't necessarily need to supplement it with a bold color or detailed design.

Natural nails

The Look: Simple, rounded nails—the French it-girl of all nail shapes. This silhouette is clean and classic, it doesn't get more elegant than this!

The Length: Go for slightly grown out, short nails. This will visually elongate and slim your fingers while keeping everything fuss-free.

The Shade: Opt for an elevated nude or neutral colored design like below. Maybe even just a clear top coat to add some shine to highlight your healthy, natural nails.
