Protagonists on the fashion catwalks, loved by the stars, easy to wear and above all very fashionable… We are talking about almond nails! The main feature of this type of nails is the more rounded shape, it resembles the stiletto, but in all cases rounded. The almond-like shape suits very well for women who have medium to long nails. In the images you can also find short nails with the almond shape. To make this manicure, elongation papers are often used.
Although they are difficult to wear, especially for those who do a lot of manual work at home, almond nails are sensual, thin the hands and are the ideal addition for those who would never, ever want to give up the look of a femmes fatales.
How to do almond nails?
File long nails, smoothing the corners. Arriving at the point of working with the tips, try to round the latter, which must be, as we have already said, slightly rounded. It must be remembered, however, that the movement must always be in the same direction, without going back and forth, so as not to damage the keratin and weaken the nail.
The second step is to apply a specific product to soften the surface of the nail. Therefore they will be better protected from all external agents, such as water, wind and the daily activities that every woman carries out.
To treat the cuticles, apply an emollient gel. This procedure involves a small massage in order to push them back with the help of an orange wood stick. Cutting the cuticles is recommended only if they are very resistant and long.
The fourth step, and also the last one, involves applying nail polish. Two layers of quality polish is more than enough. And for a more resistant manicure, don’t forget to apply the final top as well. The latter guarantees a longer duration.
