The top trend for nails right now is an immaculate, lady-like shape. They’re longer and more almond shaped than they’ve been for a long time. Don’t be tempted to file down the sides as this can weaken them.
I love gel manicures, but they must be applied correctly. This means not buffing the natural nail beforehand, keeping it perfectly maintained (applying nail oil daily) and making sure they’re removed correctly (wrapped for five to 15 minutes) to avoid damage.
