Almond-shaped nails are not as dangerous as stilettos but sharper than ovals. They draw their inspiration from the classic silhouette of the almond. The shape of the nail is pointed at the tip, with slightly rounded sides on the free edge, and is widest at the base of the nail.

Do you love how pointy nails look but you need to get things done without hurting anyone, including yourself? If so, this softer version of the pointy nail can be a happy compromise between practicality and style. In contrast to stiletto nails, you will have more space to work with, making it the ideal shape to use nail art with. Do you need some more convincing and inspiration? Check out the following almond nail designs to try.
