It’s that time of the year again- summer is over, and it’s back-to-school season. With homework and new clothes, there are a lot of things on your list of “to do.” But we know the one thing you really want to get done first: getting a manicure! If you don’t have time for a trip to the salon, we’ve got all kinds of great ideas for how to take care of your nails at home.
The shape of a manicure that you choose is usually based on the occasion. You may choose to wear a manicure with a sparkly nail polish and nail art for an event or an everyday color for school. A French manicure or natural nails are good for when you are in school or at work, but you could wear the hottest coffin nails if you’re getting ready for a big party. One of the most popular shapes is square nails, which help to prevent your nails from growing into your skin when they grow too long.
You may choose to wear a manicure that is round-shaped if you want your nails to look longer and fuller. This is great for people who have naturally thin nails. It also helps with nail breakage which often occurs when the corners of our natural nails break off. Don’t pick round-shaped nails because you think they’ll make your nails look shorter. This can cause more nail breakage, and it doesn’t actually make your nails look longer! Instead of choosing the shape if you want to make your nails look longer , try applying white nail polish first, then a coat of any color over it after two minutes.

Long Oval Manicure
A long oval manicure is a great shape for people with short nails. If you’re going to paint your nails with a color, make sure it’s a clear coat over the top so your natural nail can still breathe and look healthy. You may also choose to do your nails with nail art to make them fun and interesting.
Long oval-shaped nails are good for people who have short, thin fingers. When you paint your nails in this shape, avoid colors that will look thick on them (like blue or black) and stick to colors like pink, red, white or clear polish.
If you want to paint large sections of your nails with a color and leave the others in their natural color, you can do so with a square manicure. You may choose to paint one whole nail black at the tip or add zebra or leopard patterns on each individual finger.

Rounded Square-Shaped Nails

For this manicure you’ll need a clear coat on top followed by two coats of any color polish that you choose. Apply the second coat after the first has dried for ten seconds or more.
