Almond nails are the happy medium between oval and stiletto nails — not too pointy, not too round. They elongate your fingers (even if you stick to shorter lengths) and work with almost any kind of nail art. They’re also less likely to break than square and coffin-shaped nails. Keep scrolling for our favorite almond nail inspo. 

Classic Nude

You can never go wrong with a nude polish, especially in a shape that makes your fingers look long and elegant. Nudes go with everything and offer a subtle contrast to any skin tone.

Chrome Tips

Silver has been everywhere lately, and it’s not strictly relegated to jewelry. Update a classic French manicure with these sleek chrome tips.

Abstract Shapes

This design is for the minimalists at heart. If you’re DIY-ing the look, you’ll need an ultra-thin nail art brush on hand.

Ombré and French Tip

We have heart eyes for this glittery ombré and French tip manicure. This is the perfect set for when you’re feeling a little extra.

Strawberry Garden

What’s cuter: the strawberry nail art or the champagne cat’s eye polish? These hand-painted beauties are picnic-ready.

Short and Colorful

Neon polish and a marble design look surprisingly understated and cute on shorter almond nails. This set reminds us of summer no matter the season.
