Nailed It: Here’s What The Shape Of Your Nails Really Says About You

What do you think?


There’s nothing nicer than taking some time out to go and get your nails done.

But whether you choose round nails or square can actually reveal quite a lot about your personality, and it’s a bit of an eye-opener.

Earlier this week we saw what your favourite nail colour reveals about you, now you need to think a bit more about the shape you choose too!



One of the most classic and popular shapes, if you are a fan of round nails it often means that you like tradition and timeless pieces. You’ve probably been rocking this style for some time and like to stay loyal to your beauty salon. Usually known as the happy one of your group, you’re also laid back and keep the peace.

Fans of pointy nails are not afraid of being in the spotlight and are usually outgoing and talkative. You’re quite ambitious and deal well when put outside your comfort zone.


If you like to get your nails shaped into a square, then it can mean that you don’t mind trying out bright colours, or testing out nail art. This translates to your wardrobe too, where you’re not afraid to experiment with style. You’re a natural leader and fun.

A less out-there version of the pointed nail, people who go for this shape are usually polite but firm, good at handling difficult situations and someone who draws people to them.
