How to Shape Round Nails?
If you are used to going to a nail salon for every manicure, shaping your own nails may sound intimidating. But, with round-shaped nails, it’s more than doable and in just a few easy steps.
In order to achieve the perfect round nail shape, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First, when filing your nails, always file from the outside edge towards the center. This will help to prevent your nails from becoming too pointy.
* Note that depending on the length of your nails (and of the finished nails) you may want to start with a nail clipper.
Second, use a slightly rounded buffer to buff your nails into shape. Be careful not to over-buff, as this can damage your nails.
Finally, use a cuticle pusher or orange stick wrapped in cotton to gently push back your cuticles. This will give you a nice, clean canvas to work with when shaping your nails.
As easy as 1-2-3 isn’t it?
What Products to use for Shaping Nails Round?
Now that you know how to shape round nails, let’s talk about which products to use. There are some cool nail shaping kits out there, but honestly, for round nails no special equipment is needed…
When it comes to nail files, we recommend using a glass file. Glass files are more gentle on the nails than other types of files, and they can be reused multiple times.
For buffers, we recommend using a soft foam buffer. This type of buffer will help to avoid over-buffing your nails.
And finally, for cuticle care, we recommend using cuticle oil or cream. This will help to keep your cuticles moisturized and healthy while you’re shaping your nails.
Different Ways to Style Round Nails?
There are endless possibilities when it comes to styling round nails! In fact, it’s one of the best things about them.
For a classic look, try painting your nails with nude polish. Or for something more fun and festive, paint each nail with a different color from the rainbow.
If you’re looking for a more sophisticated style, try adding some sparkle with glitter polish or gemstones. You can also get creative with your nail art by painting fun designs on each nail.
And if you’re really feeling adventurous, try out one of the latest trends: negative space nails. This style is achieved by painting your nails with a base color, then using tape or stickers to create a design. The exposed skin is then painted with another color, creating a unique and eye-catching look.
Lastly, when it comes to the length of the nails, round nails are associated with short nails, however you can play with it a bit and make them longer… though too long would be considered oval. Either way, it’s all up to you!
How to Care for Round Shaped Nails?
Caring for round nails is similar to caring for any other type of nail. Be sure to keep your nails clean and trimmed, and use a cuticle pusher or orange stick wrapped in cotton to push back your cuticles on a regular basis.
You should also moisturize your hands and nails daily, using lotion or cream. And if you’re using nail polish, be sure to use a base coat and topcoat to protect your nails from damage.
Finally, we recommend getting a professional manicure every few weeks to keep your nails looking their best.
What Not to Do When Shaping Round Nails?
We wrote about how to get perfectly shaped round nails, what you need in order to achieve it, but we cannot conclude the article without warning you about what not to do…
First, never file your nails in a back-and-forth motion. This can damage your nails and cause them to become weak and break.
Second, avoid using metal buffers on your nails. Metal buffers can be too harsh and cause your nails to become thin and brittle.
And lastly, never cut your cuticles! Cuticles are there for a reason, and cutting them can leave you susceptible to infection. Instead, use a cuticle pusher or orange stick wrapped in cotton to gently push them back.
We hope this article has been helpful in teaching you everything you need to know about shaping round nails. Be sure to experiment with different colors, styles, and lengths to find what works best for you. And most importantly, have fun!
